Today’s card is a “Thinking of You” card. I was thinking of non-wintery ways of using some of the new November 2018 Snowflake Showcase items and these flowers are what resulted. This card was made for my friend who lost her mom recently.

Color Combination of Today’s Card
Card Recipe: Cutting
I started out with a 4 1/4″ X 11″ Petal Pink (146985) card base. I scored and folded at the 5 1/2″ mark. Then I trimmed off 1 1/4″ off the bottom of the front of the card. I cut a 3 3/4″ X 4 3/4″piece of Balmy Blue (146982) card stock and a 3″ X 4 1/4″ piece of Whisper White (100730). I cut a 2 3/4″ X 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock for the center. I also cut a 1 1/4″ X 4″ strip of 6X6 Subtles Designer Series Paper (DSP) (146966).
Next I used my trusty Big Shot (143263) and the Snowfall Thinlits (149692) Dies set. I cut out the pictured shapes from scraps of Petal Pink (146985) and Balmy Blue (146982) card stock. I especially like the lacey flower on the lower central flower. I used the Snow is Glistening (149742) stamp set to stamp the snowflake centers of the Petal Pink( 146985) flowers with Balmy Blue (147105) ink. I layered the flowers using Snail Adhesive.
I put the flowers together with the lovely swirls from the Stylish Christmas (clear 146773/ wood mount 146770) stamp set. I stamped the swirls in Balmy Blue (147105) ink. Then I layered the Whisper White layer with the Balmy Blue layer using Snail Adhesive (104332). I attached the two layers to the card base leaving an even amount of petal Pink card base around the three top sides.
I attached the top two flowers with Snail adhesive (104332) and the bottom flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430). I applied the Whisper White (100730) piece of card stock to the middle of the card and then the DSP strip to the bottom of the inside of the card. I finished with small blue gems to the middle of the flowers.
