Christmas Wishes with Stitched Snowflakes

When I design cards, I usually have the recipient in mind – one of the things I love most about creating cards is that I can create the exact card I want to send to a loved one. Sometimes, though, I create a card with the sole purpose of showcasing an idea or a gorgeous product. Today is one of those days. Here’s my card that showcases three products I love so much right now:

Watercolor Shapes, Banner Year, Stitched Snowflakes Dies, Stampin Up!, Brian King

When I was playing with the Watercolor Shapes for the kissing project I shared with you on Tuesday (you can see that project here), I wanted to build a window-like image with the square or rectangle in this set. Here’s a look at the Watercolor Shapes that created the soft panels on my card:

Watercolor Shapes, Stampin Up! 156968I stamped three rectangles along the focal panel of my card with Pool Party. Don’t they look like ice-cold windows? I love the watercolored effect.

The small, but sweet, sentiment on my card is pulled from the Banner Year stamp set, a carryover stamp set in the 2021 Annual Catalog that covers a wide variety of holidays and occasions. This set has become a favorite go-to for me. Here’s a look at Banner Year:

That brings me to the star of this card – I showcase all five of the stitched snowflakes from the Stitched Snowflakes Dies, part of the Merry Snowflakes Bundle. You might think you already have snowflakes and that you don’t need these, but I REALLY love these (so glad I got them!). Here’s a look at the Merry Snowflakes Bundle:
