Festive Flurry Ornament


I just went to a demonstrator stamping event at my upline's house last weekend.  We made a version of this ornament using Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky and Smoky Slate.  It's a gorgeous ornament.

Although I love those colors, I'm not 100% sure it would appeal to all of my customers and the way they decorate for Christmas.  So, I decided to try all white and silver.  What do you think?  Am I being too conservative?  :)

I used a heavier weight card stock (Pure Luxury from Gina K. Designs) for the largest snowflake to give it a little more weight.  A 2-1/2" circle of white card stock hides the ends of the ribbon on the back.  All of the other white layers are our Whisper White card stock.  Each layer is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

The Frosted Finishes embellishment is adhered with glue dots.  I was pleasantly surprised when I received mine.  They're so pretty and they're not bulky.  You could easily use them on a card that you're mailing.

All of the stamped snowflakes are heat embossed using Versamark ink.  When I use Versamark with my clear mount stamps, I lay my stamps face up on the table and tap them (not smoosh) several times with the Versamark pad.  Otherwise, the stamp comes off of the block.

Here's everything I used:

Pure Luxury White Card Stock
     4-1/4x4-1/5 Largest Snowflake

  1. I love it Beth and don't think you are being too conservative at all. It actually makes me think of a snowflake more in the all white and silver. But I like the blue combo as well ~ both are fun!!! :D

  3. I too like the blue ones, but I think your version is more elegant. Which luxury cardstock did you use the layering weight or the heavy base weight (100lb.)? Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. It's the heavy base weight which is 120lb. It makes the ornament a little more sturdy.

      Thanks for your comment!
