Snowflake Splendor Tutorial - A Gateway Fold card, A Tri-Fold Card & a Normal Card!

27 October 2020

 Hello everyone! Today I created a live tutorial using the Snowflake Splendor suite from the current mini catalogue. The video tutorial is included at the bottom of this post.

Here is the first card I created:

Card 1 Gatefold Card

What you need:

Night of Navy Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock, Coastal Cabana Cardstock, Pacific Point Cardstock, Pool Party & Highland Heather Cardstock.

Snowflake dies from So Many Snowflakes dies.

Snowflake Wishes Stamp set.

Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends & Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends.

Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Pad, Gorgeous Grape Stampin’ Pad, Pacific Point Stampin’ Pad & Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Pad

Shimmery Crystal Effects

Blue Adhesive Backed Gems

Multi-purpose liquid glue

Paper Measurements:

Base cardstock (Night of Navy) 21cm x 14.9cm

4 x DSP 14.4cm x 4.8cm

1 x Whisper White 14.4cm x 10cm

1 x Night of Navy 23.5cm x 4cm (outer band)

1 x Coastal Cabana 23cm x 3.5cm (outer band layer)


Score the card base at 5.25cm at each end of the cardstock (landscape)

Adhere the outer band layer onto the Night of Navy band cardstock.

Score Band cardstock 6cm in from one end & 6.5cm the other end.

Glue the overlapping ends together.

Cut out 3 different snowflake dies that are different sizes and glue together then glue onto the band covering the join section. Place a large blue adhesive backed gem in the middle of the snowflake die cuts.

Run two of the DSP strips through the embossing machine using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder, then adhere to the front of the card. If you use the same DSP as me, use the Stampin’ Blends to colour some of the outer snowflakes in Highland Heather and Seaside Spray.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment “Snowflake Wishes for a Merry Christmas” using Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Pad. Trim down the edges around the sentiment and adhere the right side of the sentiment to the right side of the front of the card.

Use Shimmery Crystal effects to go over the coloured snowflakes and the sentiment if you wish to add some sparkle.

Adhere the two remaining DSP strips inside the flaps of the card & adhere the whisper white layer to the inside middle of the card.

Using Gorgeous Grape Stampin’ Pad stamp the Sentiment “May Your Season Sparkle” to the inside Whisper White layer. Add a stamp of a snowflake using Pacific Point and another using Coastal Cabana around the Sentiment.

You have finished the card!

Card 2

What You Need:

Pool Party cardstock for base of card 29.7cm x 14.9cm

2 x DSP 14.4cm x 10cm

3 x DSP 14.4cm x 7cm

1 x Whisper White cardstock 14.4cm x 7cm

2 x DSP 14.4cm x 3.7cm

1 x Gorgeous Grape cardstock 10cm x 6.7cm

1 x Sentiment die cut out in Whisper White and trim just past the stitched left and right corners and leave .5cm at the top and bottom.

2 x length of Snowflake Splendor ribbon

Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Pad & Pacific Point stampin’ Pad

1 x Large blue adhesive backed gem

2 x small blue adhesive backed gems

Multi-purpose liquid glue

Sponge dauber


Score the Pool Party base cardstock at 10.5cm, 18cm & 25.5cm

Fold and burnish mountain fold on the largest score line, then fold and burnish back valley fold the next score line and lastly fold the smallest score line forward mountain fold and burnish. The base of the card is ready.

Adhere the largest DSP to the base of the card, then add the whisper white layer ready for the sentiment on the next layer and continue. Before adhering, the top smallest layer use mini glue dots to adhere one piece of the ribbon to the front of the card, then adhere the DSP layer over the top. This also applies to the large layer of DSP on the back of the card, adhere the ribbon first with mini glue dots and adhere the DSP over the ribbon. This ensures there is a neater look to your card. Add all layers of DSP.

Now adhere the whisper white die cut sentiment layer onto the Gorgeous Grape cardstock layer and adhere the left of this layer in the middle of the top of the card. Using a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment using Coastal Cabana Stampin’ pad, “May Your Season Sparkle” and trim around the sentiment. Use Pacific Point stampin’ pad with a sponge dauber and sponge lightly around the sentiment edge. Adhere the sentiment to the middle of the sentiment layer. Add 2 x small & 1 x large blue adhesive backed gems to the sentiment layer.

Lastly stamp the inside sentiment onto the Whisper White layer using Pacific Point Stampin’ Pad, “In the Coldest moments of the year, my heart is warm because you’re near”. Finish of the card by tying a bow with the ribbon to hold the card together.

You card is finished!
