Simple Snowflake Christmas Card

Looking for a simple Christmas card to whip up at the last minute?  This is just the card for you.  We made this at club last night, and I think most people completed it in five minutes or less. 

Tips & Tricks
  • It doesn't show up well in this picture, but check out the all-Crumb Cake version I made'll see that there is a slight shimmer to the card.  I used to love to use shimmer paint and alcohol to create a sparkly look.  Unfortunately, Stampin' Up! no longer sells shimmer paint.  However, you can get a very similar, although a bit more subtle look using the Illuminate refill ink with alcohol. Simply fill a spritzer mostly full with rubbing alcohol and add some refill ink.  I don't have specific'll just need to experiment until you get the look you desire.  The spritz the entire card front for a shimmery finish to your card.
  • The rhinestones give this card the added touch of elegance that takes it from pretty to beautiful.  Those four little rhinestones pack a big punch for a small investment!
