CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Snowflake Inspiration

It is Christmas Eve and my turn over at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog for a little inspiration. I created three projects for this post, all using some of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps snowflake dies and stamps.

My first project I created a thank you card.

I used CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Bring on the Snowflakes," "Snowy Sayings" and "Thanks" stamp sets for this card. I designed this card to be very simple so that I could easily whip up a ton to write my Christmas thank you notes.

I stamped the snowflakes from both snow sets in green, pink, aqua and lavender inks onto a blue card base. I then stamped the sentiment with black ink. I added a bit of sparkle to the snowflakes with glitter glue that matched the ink colors.

My next project I created for my "Secret Snowflake" I had at work.

I die cut snowflakes put of white paper scraps using the CAS-ual Fridays Fri-dies "Funky Flakes" and "Flurry," dies.

I then inserted die cut snowflakes in a clear envelope, added white flat and star sequins, as well as a gift card, and then fused them at the top. I have never done this technique before and thought the result was cool. I am now going to look at using my dies in fun, new ways.

I created a tag to match, stamping snowflakes from "Bring on the Snowflakes" and "Snowy Sayings" onto the large tag from the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Tag Buddies" die set.

Since I was not wrapping this gift up, the inks I used for the snowflakes matched the gift card.

If you like any of the projects here, the stamps and dies can be purchased from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps store. Use my code nora2016 to get a 15% discount.
