A quick snowflake card ideal for batch making

My last card was just a little time consuming with the heat embossing, painting and cutting out but here's a quick and simple (and very low cost) version that I'll be demonstrating to the ladies over at St Saviours today. It's ideal for Stamp-a-stack cardmaking - making batches of the same card, (or a set using the same design in different colourways) for giving or for selling at craft fairs etc.

Stamp set: Serene Snowflakes
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Other: Dazzling Diamonds

I started with a 4-1/4" square blank that I stamped with the small snowflake and the trio of snowflakes in Not Quite Navy ink. I stamped the large snowflake with Not Quite Navy ink onto a 2-3/4" square of Very Vanilla card and matted it onto Not Quite Navy card. This topper was popped up on dimensionals in the centre. Finally I added a little Tombow to the centres of the snowflakes on the base card (no wasting it on those covered by the centre panel this way) and to the large snowflake in the centre and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over the top. Stamp a sentiment inside and you're all done. Quick, easy and cheap.

Have a great weekend.

Very nice card, Sara! Easy and quick to "mass" produce and I am sure people will love it. Great inspiration, as usual.
