Here's the card with just polar snowflakes on it:


  • Winter Phrases wooden stamp item #2009394 ANW Crestwood
  • Martha Stewart Alpine Snowflake punch
  • Martha Stewart Arctic Snowflake punch
  • Martha Stewart Stamp & Punch Polar punch
  • Colorbox Frost White Pigment ink pad
  • 3 3/4" x 4 1/4" Recollections gemstones blue paper
  • Martha Stewart Holidays carrara marble tinsel glitter
  • Sparkle N Sprinkle Tear-ific tape 3/8"
  • white cardstock for base and punching


  1. Cut 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of white cardstock for base. Fold to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".
  2. Stamp winter phrases onto gemstone blue paper using white pigment ink. Set aside to dry.
  3. Punch out snowflakes from white cardstock. You can use all three types or just one if you prefer, like in the bottom card. If you have a Xyron you might want to run the paper through it first so you end up with snowflake stickers instead of having to delicately apply glue.
  4. Place 3 strips of tear-ific tape next to each other on the left and right hand sides. This is super sticky tape designed for glitter. You can use redline time or other glittering tape depending on what you have available. I tried other types of basic tape, like ATG tape designed for paper to paper, but they were not sticky enough to get good coverage with the tinsels.
  5. Add tradional adhesive in the center of the card base between the tape strips.
  6. Peel off backing from inner most tape strip on each side.
  7. Attach blue shimmer paper in center using tape strips to center.
  8. Peel off the rest of the tape backing.
  9. Sprinkle carrera marble tinsel glitter over both ends of the tape. Sprinkle a good amount and press down gently to get it stuck. It doesn't translate well in the image, but the tinsel stands up in all different directions and adds a lot of texture to the card.
  10. Tap off excess glitter and return to container.
  11. Glue snowflakes on the gemstone blue in a carefully thought out seemingly random pattern that covers the card front. I used Scrappy glue because it has a fine tip applicator and dries quickly.
