Hello again!

Back again with another rainbow snowflake card. Can you tell I love rainbows and snowflakes ๐Ÿ˜†

This card features some of my favorites from Studio Katia. These Chunky Alphas are so fun especially when you want to create your own sentiments and these snowflakes stamps are soooo pretty! 

To make this card, I first blended out the background using the distress oxide linked below. I then spritzed the background with water and picked them up with a paper towel. Next, I die-cut the panel using the frame from the Darling Ribbons and Frames Die set. 

Once the ink was dry I used an anti-static tool to prep the surface for heat embossing. I then stamped the snowflakes onto the background and heat set the ink with white emb. pwd.

Next, I die cut all the letters to spell out the Merry & Bright using the Chunky Alphabet dies. To each letter, I added White Puff Emb. Powder, puffed with heat, and then added glue onto the buff and dipped the puffy part back into Sparkle Glitter for extra sparkly snow. It's so hard to share the sparkle in these photos but in real life, they are so pretty!

I then added foam tape to the back of the letters and popped them onto the card front.

To finish the card, I glued some Icy Sparkle Crystals and added the random Snowflake Glitter to the background.

Trifold See Through Shaker Cards | Honey Bee Stamps

Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

Happy Cyber Monday Crafty Friends! Hope you found some great deals this weekend.

I am back again today with a couple more Trifold See Trough Shaker Cards featuring goodies from Honey Bee Stamps. I told you I had a shaker addiction and I wasn't kidding, lol!

So let me tell you all about this first Rainbow Trifold See Through Card. Isn't she so pretty!?!

Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

Here is how this colorful creation came together.
  • Cut a Slimline Cello Bag to 4 5/16 x 6 1/2" for a vertical A2 size card. 
  • Slide a piece of acetate inside the clear bag cut to A2 size.
  • Fill the clear bag with glitter and rainbow-colored confetti, sorry the mix I used had been discontinued. But I just used a few sequins from each color of the rainbow.
  • Cut a small sliver from the bottom of the front of the card base panel. This will make it easier for the card to close once it is all assembled.
  • Flip the card base upside down so that the fold is on the bottom and the opening is on the top. Like a “V”. Face the panel that is shorter towards you (see the previous step).
  • Place the filled clear bag in front of the upside-down card base and align the sides and the bottoms together. 
  • Fold the overhang of the bag (1 Inch) over the top of the upside-down card base and crease the Cello Bag fold with your fingernails. This will create the flap that you will glue to the back of the card base.
  • Cut the corners of the bag above the crease mark.
  • To the back of the upside-down card, base add 2 strips of double-sided tape. One just under the edge of the card base and one ½’ below that one. Remove the protective piece from the double-sided tape.
  • Center and align the bag in front of the upside-down card base and press the cello flap down onto the double-sided tape.
  • Lay the card flat so that you can still access the opening of the shaker pocket. 
  • Slide a piece along the entire width of the card using double-sided tape. Place the tape strip just above the creased edge of the cello bag flap. 
  • Remove the protective layer and press the bag shut. This will seal the shaker pocket and keep glitter and shaker bits from flowing into the top opening. 
  • Add an extra piece of clear tape along the edge of the cello flap for extra insurance.
  • To finish the back of the card base, glue an A2 panel cut to the same size as the card base. This covers up the bag's flap and becomes the backside of the middle panel of the tri-fold.
  • Finish the front of the panel by adding the holographic rainbow layering snowflakes dies
  • Stamp out the sentiment from the Bitty Buzzwords: Holiday in white and heat set it using white emb. pwd. Cut the strip and add it to the front of the panel.
  • Next, die-cut the holiday from the Bitty Buzzwords: Holiday Dies. Stack and glue three layers of white and then glue it to a black shadow layer. I used a white pearl to dot the "i". Glue the Holiday to the front of the card front to finish off the sentiment.
  • Glue rhinestones to the centers of the snowflakes.

To create a stopper, and keep the front panel propped up and displayed, I glued another snowflake to the bottom panel of the trifold.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Bitty Buzzwords: Holidays The Merry and Bright sentiment just ties the whole card together.

I shared this card on Instagram a couple of days ago, but if you missed the Reel of it coming together watch the clip below๐Ÿ‘‡

This next Snowman Trifold See Trough Shaker Card was done the exact same way as the previous card. I used silver chunky glitter from Martha Stewart that was not included in the list below, but I bet many of you already have this in your stash!

Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

To the front of this see-through panel, I added the cutest snowman from the Build A Snowman Dies. To the snowman's hat and scarf, I added some white gel dots and a frosting of glitter.

In the image below, you can see the clear see-through front. Behind the snowman, I added a couple of trees from the Pine Tree Dies. To add snow to the trees, I added glue across the tree and the tips that were then covered in glitter. The Season's Greeting Sentiment comes from the Bitty Buzzwords: Holidays stamp set heat embossed in white.

Since I had some snowflakes left from the previous card, I added another snowflake to the front of the card panel that I then finished with a large sequin and a crystal in the center.

To the bottom panel of the trifold, I added the surprise element of a gift card holder made from the Gift Card Pocket Die, die-cut from vellum, and stamped with a sentiment from the Snow Family Like Ours stamp set.
