How to Make a 3D Snowflake Card
I’m excited to be launching my very first papercraft collection at the end of the month – the Signature Collection – and here I’d like to share another idea with you, using products from my Festive Wonder range.
At Christmas, I know how expensive postage can be when you’re sending bulky handmade cards off to friends and family. Here I’ve used inking and embossing techniques to give my card a dimensional feel without breaking the bank at the post office! Check out my video tutorial below to see for yourself how it’s done.

- Crease-fold a tent-fold card blank from Centura Pearl cardstock. Trim a second piece of Centura Pearl to fit the card front and ink the edges using Cut-n-Dry Foam and Distress ink.
- Trim three strips of cream linen-effect cardstock and emboss using the Snow Flurry embossing folder. Trim the end of each strip into a banner shape and ink the edges with Distress ink.
- Adhere the three inked and embossed banners onto the card front.
- Stamp your sentiment onto cream linen-effect cardstock and edge with Distress ink. Attach to the bottom-right corner of the card.
- Die-cut snowflakes from cream linen-effect cardstock and use them to decorate your banners using 3D glue gel. Add flat-backed pearls to the centre of the snowflakes.
