Snowflake Double Z Card

Good Evening!

I have a Snowflake Double Z card for you today, it comes in 2 parts in order to make it a decent sized card (mine is just under 6 inches) so I thought I’d show how I put it together in case it isn’t obvious :)I went way out of my comfort zone with today’s colour scheme, I tend to gravitate towards whites, blues and aquas for anything snowflake-y but you have to challenge yourself sometimes! I did sneak in the obligatory bit of glitter though ;)

Pic 1. These are all of the pieces needed for the card, I picked some kraft card for my card base pieces, some patterned papers for the outside and inside layers and glitter card for my snowflake pieces:

Pic 2. I folded along the perforated lines in the kraft card then added double sided tape around the edge of one of the square panels so I can overlap them to create my card base:

Pic 3. Once the back panels were stuck together, I taped my inner patterned paper layer. I chose some paper that had a large area that I could write my message on:

Pic 4. All of the other pieces are added to the front of the card, the rectangle pieces are placed either side of the opening as a backdrop to the snowflake detail:

Pic 5. This is how the card looks when it is closed, I had added some Metal Embellishments to decorate the corners:

    What a kick a** card!!! A super way to make a fancy statement with little fuss. I know so many people who would think this took a ton of time and be so impressed. Always grateful for the work and inspiration you share. Hope you have a blessed holiday season.

    Went to your shop page and noticed a quite critical error.

    Measurements are wrong. “Metal Corner Embellishments – Antique Bronze Set 1 – Pack of 12 48cm wide x 26cm deep” They are either 48mm x 26mm OR 4.8cm x 2.6cm.

    48cm is almost 19 inches ;)
    Surely this is just a silly error, but definitely worth of correcting ;)

    I hope I get similar results as you when I start to make mine (that’s if I ever get started… at this rate, i’m going to be sending shop bought cards (that’s swearing)!!!! ) LOL!

    Thank you so so so much as ever
