Sparkly Snowflake

Hello there, I rarely mass produce cards. The only time I ever do is at Christmas. As much as I would like to make one-off cards for everyone at Christmas, I usually do not have the time sadly. I hope, however, they are no less special to the recipient.

My card this year is a very simple one but I actually love the simplicity of it design wise. I die cut the MFT Mesmerizing Mandala Die (which isn't actually a snowflake but I thought it looked like one) from glitter paper. This was adhered to an A2 white card base with Multi Medium Matte glue.
I took the 'Merry Christmas' sentiment from the MFT Snow Globe Sentiments set and stamped this on to a piece of black cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. I then cut the sentiment out in to a strip using the MFT Stitched Rectangle Word Windows Die. I used the positive of the die so I didn't get the stitching but it was the perfect size for the sentiment. This was added then to the card with foam tape.

Sadly I did get as many made this year as I would have liked to. Being ill the last couple of months has really put me back. Hopefully I can make it up to the people I didn't get to send one to during 2018 :) Thank you so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I'll be wrapping presents!


  1. Any card from you is a card made with love. I LOVE the white on white look and I bet it sparkles like a dream. Wishing you a wonderful christmas and an absolutely fabulous New Year! Xxxxx

  2. Lovely card Michelle! Happy Christmas

  3. I think your card is beautiful, extremely elegant! I don't think making multiples of the same card is a bad thing at all, especially for the holidays. It doesn't make them less special in the least! Please don't push yourself to make cards for everyone, we all know you haven't been feeling well, and nobody expects a card. I don't send a card to someone because I expect them to reciprocate, I send it because I want to send a card to them. I would feel awful if I thought that someone felt they had to send me one because I sent them one. Just rest and have a wonderful Christmas with your family and, God willin, feel well.

    Sending love and prayers,

  4. Love the MFT mandala, & it does look like a gorgeous snowflake in that beautiful glitter paper.
    Hope you feel 100% again soon, have a great Christmas x

  5. Just beautiful..what a gorgeous snowflake, magical! Merry Christams!
