Creative Cards – Snowflake Gift


This month’s Christmas Challenge card is a creative card for you – a snowflake gift. The theme at the Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge this month is Gift, so why not just wrap it all up in a snowflake bow?

HLS Christmas Challenge May 2016

To create this card, I wanted a simple and straightforward background – white pigment ink stenciled with the Snowflakes stencil by Memory Box onto some Pool Party card stock by Stampin Up. I had some matching pool party satin ribbon for my wrapping, a couple Snowflake die cuts in Pool Party and Night of Navy card stock as my bow.


Just stamp the greeting from the Mixed Christmas Sentiments by Happy Little Stampers, cut some banner edges and pop up the middle for a little movement and Voila – all done!

Quick, simple, interesting and this can be done over and over in any color theme and with any dies – think Graduation with hats and a diploma, Happy Birthday with anything – polka dots, little cakes, streamers – you name it. Baby, flowers, butterflies, I can go on and on and on. Quick, easily mass produced and so cute! Tell me YOUR idea in the comments below – I’d love to compile a list of awesome ideas.

  1. Sorry to be so late adding my comments to my fellow HLS Christmas DT’s cards! I love the way you created a gift with the stenciled background and the ribbon. And I really like the sentiment tucked into the points of the snowflake!

  2. Hi Ingrid. It’s another beautiful card and a creative approach to the subject challenge. Your cards are always an original.

  3. Love the icy blue of your ‘gift package’ and the way you’ve used the pretty ribbon to tie the package. The layered snowflakes in the dual tones is such a beautiful topper for this fun package. TFS

  5. I love the way you have used the pretty blue ribbon and the two snowflakes to wrap your card Ingrid and the white snowflakes stencilled on the background complement it beautifully. I have really enjoyed my GD spot this month too. x
