Northern Lights Snowflakes

Northern Lights Snowflakes

Hi All,

This card is pretty quick. It’s mostly just die-cutting and piecing together. I had a little problem with the adhesive glitter paper I’ve been using. See the video for details. 🙂

I used Night of Navy and Soft Sky cardstock. I think these two colors go great together. I’m actually using Night of Navy on my family holiday card this year – it’s such a beautiful, rich blue. Here is a close of up the pieces fitting together:

The Christmas Card exchange groups are ready!! You can access them HERE or via “my Groups” in the top menu above the LiveLoveCards logo. PLEASE VERIFY ALL YOUR INFORMATION. I ended up grouping people of the same region or country in chunks, that way international peeps would not have airmail all cards. Please mail your cards by December 1st to make sure they arrive on time. Merry Christmas!! 🙂

Enjoy the video and have a great weekend!

    I love that die and the card is stunning.. But, I will resist buying it this time (LOL). I’ve never seen the self-adhesive glimmer paper locally but I will be sure not to get any if I do stumble across some. I must remember to use Tomboy glue more often in future. That wiggle room really helps.

    Darlene, have you tried one of those little rolling scrubby brushes that are designed to help remove all those intricate die pieces? Stampin Up has one, as does Spellbinders. The Spellbinder one is called a “Tool ‘n One”; it also comes with a poker tool as well as a spatula tool. These brushes really do help with the “poking” needed to release tiny bits!

      I haven’t tried it, but I’ve heard about it. Maybe it’s worth getting – I may add it to my list. I feel like I do spend a lot of time poking!

    Love, love the pretty snowflakes on this card! The navy cardstock plus sparkly silver paper is a winning combination!

    Very pretty card! I was thinking about buying the adhesive glitter paper but now I won’t. I like to use the Tombow glue for the same reason you do but I find sometimes it shows through the paper if your cardstock is not very heavy.

    Thx for another great card.

    Beautiful card! Love the colors and the way the die cuts are joined together. Such a great idea. I saw an interesting tip to apply glue to a die cut. You cut a wedge of sponge ( this was the round sponges from SU) use a binder clip to hold the sponge. You put a small dab of tombow glue on your craft mat. Then dip the sponge in the glue and tap it lightly on the die cut. Looks like it works great. I haven’t tried it yet. You can then keep your sponge in a tiny container to reuse.

      It sounds like a good idea, but I’d be afraid that some of the tombow glue would get on the front of the die cut. If it does, it would be sticky. Maybe another glue would work too?

    Yet another gorgeous card. I love the colours and that die is lovely. I kind of felt for you tearing your glitter paper (I am sure we all do that at times but getting in the car and buying the new lot makes one feel so much better especially when it turns out so beautifully). It was worth the trip, but for me I would have to drive 60 kilometers to get my “glitter paper”.(lol)

      Holy cow, that’s far Glenis! I feel sorry for you. 🙁

    Gorgeous die Darlene!!! looks so elegant specially against that beautiful glimmer paper.
    I laughed out loud when you just ripped that sticky glimmer paper and then, ran to the store to get some more. I think the sticky paper was to pliable and therefore, hard to handle. The other one looks amazing.
    Thank you for sharing another fantastic video.
