Mirrored Snowflake Thank You Card
This CAS card features the “Snowflake Marquee” die from Memory Box.
This is one die, but it cuts 10 separate pieces – the two halves of the snowflake and the 8 dots. I needed a bunch of these cards, and positioning and adhering all the pieces posed the biggest challenge, but I came up with a few tricks to make it easier…
First, I added Super Tacky Tape by Creek Bank Creations to the back of a piece of silver mirrored card stock and then die cut the shapes. The Super Tacky Tape made all the pieces stickers which made them easier to adhere to the card fronts. In order to get the placement of the pieces right, I created a template first by positioning and die cutting the image from plain white card stock. I was able to place the template over the actual card panels and just drop the silver pieces into the negative spaces on the template. (I used the spacing of the original die, but you could make the space between the halves of the snowflake larger or smaller if desired.)
The greeting is from the “What I Love” stamp set (retired?) by Stampin’ Up, and was heat embossed with Gina K Designs Fine Detail Silver embossing powder. This panel was mounted on a silver mirrored mat and then a heavy weight white base.
Thanks for checking out my card project!

Beautiful card! The mirror CS is so pretty.
Stunning, love the technique for placing all that shine.
So very beautiful and elegant looking. Awesome card design.
I have this same die and love the result it gives. I’ve done something similar to yours, and also just cut the panel and then placed mirror or sparkly CS behind it, rather than paper piece it. Works well either way. I like your card and the simplicity of the design.
Totally elegant and beautiful. Great technique to keep all those little pieces in place. Thanks for the tip.
Lisa, this is gorgeous! I love that you used the negative space to get your placement perfect, too. Great job on it, especially with all those little pieces. Dots are great at trying to get away and/or hide.
WOW!! this is so beautiful and elegant.
