Kaleidoscope Snowflakes with Mindy Eggen

Welcome everyone! Mindy Eggen here with you today and I’m excited to share with you some inspiration using the Spellbinders Small Die of the Month for November 2019, the Kaleidoscope Snowflake.

I have a video creating these two cards that you can view down below or (HERE) on my Youtube channel.
The Kaleidoscope Snowflake Small Die of the Month comes with 7 individual dies. You can use them separately or layer together to create beautiful dimension snowflakes.
For this first card, I layered together the pieces to create a large snowflake for my card front. I die cut the pieces from Pixie Dust card stock and Gold Glitter card stock and layered together with Lawn Fawn Liquid Glue.
My background is created by stamping the Hand-Drawn Snowflake stamp from Hero Arts onto Plum card stock with embossing ink using my Original Misti. Then heat embossing Sparkle Embossing powder.

I attached my snowflake to the top of the card with liquid glue.
The sentiment is from the Bitty Holiday Wishes stamp set. I heat embossed it in Gold Embossing Powder onto Pitch Black card stock and trimmed down to a thin strip. I attached the sentiment to the center of my snowflake using foam tape.

My next card is featuring the actual snowflake dies from the Small Die of the Month. These can layer together up to 3 times but I only did 2 layers. I die cut the pieces from Pixie Dust card stock and Silver Glitter card stock. Then used my Lawn Fawn Liquid Glue to adhere together.
I created a very simple background for this card which would be really easy to recreate in quantities. I ink blended Grape Juice Ink onto the edges of Plum card stock using a blending brush.
Then added my snowflakes to the card front with liquid glue.
The sentiment is from the Very Merry Sentiments from Concord & 9th. I stamped the sentiment in Altenew Obsidian Ink using my Misti tool and then trimmed them down into individual strips. I love the look of the labels.
I attached foam tape to the back of each strip and added to my card front.

Can I say I am really loving this Plum card stock from Hero Arts! Such a unique color for Holiday cards!
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!
