Hello!! Welcome to Birdwing Paper Designs! I’m Leah from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and I can’t wait to share the latest projects from the Artisan Design Team!
The November blog hop showcases a beautiful suite from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalogue, Snowflake Splendor.
Now that winter has arrived in Alberta, I would love to share a few snowy projects.
The Snowflake Splendor DSP is a gorgeous, softly coloured set of patterned paper. I used it on all three cards as a background. The first card used negative cutouts of the So Many Snowflake Dies to let the pretty watercolour DSP show through. More sparkly snowflakes cut from the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper were added to the front of the card and it was finished off with a stamped sentiment and a few snowflake sequins.
The second card is a slim card measuring 8″ x 3.5″ that shows off the snowflake frame die perfectly. The greeting was embossed on a piece of vellum and adhered behind the frame. The Whisper White snowflakes die cut from the card above were used to embellish this card. Some more glimmer paper and Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems were added to give it a bit of glitz!
The final card, a square one, has five layers of snowflake detail! The card base was embossed with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder, then a layer of DSP, a subtle hint of glimmer paper, followed by a large negative die cut snowflake, and finally, a stamped and die cut purple snowflake. The blended colour on the top snowflake was achieved by stamping it in Highland Heather and sponging Night of Navy to the centre of the stamp.
I hope this gives you a lot of snowflake ideas to use on your wintery holiday projects!
