I am back today with an elegant holiday card design using the Snowflake Oval stamp set from the new release of Newton’s Nook Designs. I love how versatile this stamp set is and it can be combined with many previously released cute stamps too!
First I heat embossed the Snowflake Oval stamp on Bristol Smooth cardstock using Glitter White embossing powder. Then I cut it out with the scalloped oval from Oval Frames and did some quick ink blending: Chipped Sapphire and Enchanted Mariner Distress Oxide inks. I added a lot of water splatters and gave it a bigger stitched oval mat.
On a piece of white cardstock I adhered a die cut Christmas, which I cut from Blue Violet cardstock with the Holiday Greetings dies. I used the Holiday Heights stamp set to stamp the word “merry” above the die cut sentiment with a coordinating ink. I used the same blue violet cardstock to give a mat to the sentiment strip.
I mounted the focal panel on a fog card base and popped up the sentiment with a tape runner.
I wanted to add a coloured image to the design but I searched for something relatively small. I found the house in Holiday Home, stamped it in black and coloured it with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers: DR5, DR3, DR1, JG7, JG5, JG3, IG5, IG3, IG2, IG1, TB1, TB05. I used the coordinating die to cut it out and I used 3D foam tape to attach it above the sentiment strip.
As a finishing touch I used clear shimmer on the snow and glossy accents to emphasize some details.
I wish you got inspired and will jump right into holiday cardmaking. Christmas is so close, I will also speed up on my winter cards.
See you soon,

Hi, Zsofia – Love the use of blue with the touches of red / green. This is a super-pretty card. The sparkly, shimmery accents are perfect as a finishing touch!
