DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #301: Beautiful Blizzard with Joyous Noel

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "showCASE" challenge.

I'm excited for this week's showCASE challenge.  Why...because I really like the layout of this card in the Holiday Catalog and I thought it could be applied to a lot of different Designer Series Papers.  Here's my take on it...

With the catalog inspiration, this card came together very quickly (gotta love that?).  I actually chose the snowflake pattern from the Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper first, then searched for a stamp set that would complement it.  I didn't have to search too far, as the Beautiful Blizzard Bundle was the perfect choice.

How'd She DO That? tips for Beautiful Blizzard card:

  1. Stamps: Beautiful Blizzard
  2. Paper:
    • Sahara Sand (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Whisper White (./4" x 3-1/2" banner)
    • Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper (4" x 5-1/4", 3/4" x 4-1/2")
    • Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper (scraps for snowflakes)
  3. Ink: Tranquil Tide
  4. Other:  Big Shot, Precision Base Plate, Blizzard Thinlit Die, 3/16" Braided Linen Trim, Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets & Stampin' Dimensionals
  5. Tip:  For the snowflakes
    • I cut a 2" x 4" piece of Glimmer Paper and Multipurpose Adhesive sheets and stuck them together.
    • Placed it near one end of the die and cut several snowflakes.  Then I had a few choices of sizes to select from.  NOTE:  this die cuts lots of snowflakes, see below for the sizes.
    • The Blizzard Die definitely required the Precision Base Plate.  For my Big Shot, I added a "shim" of folded copy paper too.
