Just when you think you could not possibly love the Stampin’ Up! Snow Flurry Bigz Die any more . . . you see a handmade Christmas card like this.



When I went to log into the demonstrator website, I saw a card very similar to this on the Stampin’ Up! website in black with a different greeting.  Immediately I was struck by the simple elegance.

For some reason unknown to even me, black did not sit well with me.  I know, I know, I’m the lady who just made a Christmas card with the same Snow Flurry Bigz Die in brown.  Apparently there is no rhyme or reason to my thinking.  Just a glimpse into the world my husband has put up with for 25 years. 🙂

The die-cut snowflakes have a bit of glimmer to them with the Shimmery White Card Stock used for them.   Unfortunately, the camera does not pick up the subtle beauty of the Shimmery White Card Stock.  The same with the Basic Rhinestone Jewel in the center.


The “Christmas cheer” greeting from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Essentials stamp set, was embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  The white embossing is rather stunning against the dark blue of the Night of Navy Card Stock.

The Night of Navy Card Stock layered onto Night of Navy Card Stock is not a new idea but always an attractive one.  Especially so when you use plenty of Stampin’ Dimensionals behind it to lift it up.   Doesn’t it remind you of an invitation you would expect to receive to a royal ball?

Isn’t it fun to come across a card idea you just have to make yourself?  The card I saw and changed up a just bit brought to mind a couple of ideas with another snowflake.   Tune in tomorrow to see the two other card ideas spawned by this one.

Not trying to sound like a broken record, but it truly is looking like the Stampin’ Up! Snow Flurry Bigz Die will not be available to purchase after January 2, 2013.  If you do not already own it, you will surely be kicking yourself when you remember how you could have easily used this handmade card idea for not just Christmas but for winter birthday, weddings, anniversary and thinking of you cards.  Why not for a sympathy card, as well?

So, instead of straining to get your let up high enough to kick yourself, save yourself the trouble and order the Snow Flurry Bigz Die in my online store now!
