Trend Watch – Snowflakes

Growing up in northern Minnesota, I have a certain fondness for snow. I love how it blankets the world in fresh, white sparkle, and how you can appreciate the beauty of individual snowflakes as they fall on your mittens and coat. I think snowflakes will always be on-trend in the paper crafting world. There are always lots of gorgeous products out there. Let’s take a look at some of this season’s gorgeous snowflake cards!

One thing I love about snowflakes is that they can be used for the entirety of winter, not just for Christmas. Latisha’s card could easily be used for any winter celebration, like a winter birthday or New Year’s Eve.

Lin really captured the sparkle of snowflakes with the glitter paper and sequins. Those stitched snowflakes are so classy!

This Christmas card by Dawn features a very on-trend Polaroid frame. My science brain loves how the frame is filled with a microscope-like view of the snow falling on her dry-embossed background. The delicate stamped snowflakes are so elegant.

Kay creates beautiful clay snowflake ornaments, and this year Kay and Reverse Confetti have designed a die set that allow you to create a paper version of Kay’s snowflakes! Stop by her blog to see her beautiful clay ornaments that inspired this die. She is so talented.

Kay also designed this cheery card, featuring snowflakes, a winter hat and mittens, and your favorite tasty, warm beverage. This is another card that could easily be sent any time during the winter months. The coordinating patterned paper ties the card together really well.

Virginia used this fun snowflake as the focal point of her cards. She used a transparent sheet behind the vellum to create some extra shimmer behind the snowflake, and it’s just perfect!

Lawn Fawn recently came out with this great scripty border, tying together all things on-trend, as they are often known to do. Nichol’s card really sets off the border and also has such gorgeous little hanging snowflakes. The sequins and sparkles come together to complete the design.
