Simple Snowflake

Simple Snowflake

Hi All!

Today I’m back with some kraft cardstock. This time, however, I am using Hero Arts Kraft. Whenever I want a darker kraft, I use this brand. I wanted a darker color here because it contrasts nicely with the snowflake. Hero Arts’ kraft paper is much thinner and paper-bag looking, if you know what I mean.

Kind of like I did with this card, I included a bit of color by adding a matte of Soft Sky. Here is a close-up:

    Love the simplicity of this design, Darlene! I added it to my favorites even before I watched the video. One product I would recommend for situations like the one you got into with your greeting is UnDu. It basically deactivates adhesive temporarily, so you can unstick pieces. When the UnDu liquid evaporates, the adhesive is sticky again, so you don’t have to reapply any to re-stick your paper. It only works on dry adhesive, though–if you use liquid glue, you’re stuck (sorry for the pun! LOL). It even has a “scoop” attachment right on the bottle, that you can use to help “encourage” pieces to come apart. I’m personally not sure how useful that attachment is, as I rarely have good luck with it. But the liquid works amazingly well! It does have a bit of an odor, but not too bad, and once you put the cap back on the bottle, you can’t really smell it anymore. It doesn’t leave an odor on your paper, either. You can find it at Hobby Lobby I know. Not sure about Michael’s, but I would think online places like Scrapbook.com might have it. Anyway, just a suggestion (albeit a long one!). Thank you for sharing your beautiful, simple card today. Have a great weekend! 🐱 ~ Andrea

    Been busy making Christmas cards and missing a few of your wonderful videos! This card is perfect for a 1-layer card altered a bit to go on the front of some Kraft Hero Arts notecards I have with matching envelopes. I’ve got just the snowflake die in my stash. What would I do without you, Darlene, for inspiration?!

    Nice but simple design. I happen to be using Kraft card stock this year on my Christmas cards so this is right up my alley.

    Love the look of this gorgeous snowflake on the Kraft card stock, I’m always amazed at how you create your bows, no matter how thin the thread is, the one you made for this card is so perfect, looks amazing.
    Thank you for another fun video Darlene.
