Snowflake Card Thinlits Die Tutorial

Since I’ve recently been asked how to use the Snowflake Card Thinlits Die I thought it would be easier to post a tutorial from the Stampin’ Up! home office.

Hello, can you hear me?

Remember back in the day, actually yesterday, when you’re on your cell phone and the connection goes bad and you find yourself saying, “Hello, can you hear me?”  Well today I’m sharing a smart phone card that the recipient surely won’t have a problem communicating.  Needless to say if you’ve been following me for awhile, I’m in love with MFT (My Favorite Things) products.  My newbie for this month is the Smart Phone Die-namics using pictures.  A list of supplies will be at the end of this post.

This card is a standard A2 (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″).   The background is clear embossed with MFT’s Jumbo Abstract Art stamp set. The photo is covered with a transparency to look more realistic.  It doesn’t photograph well, but looks cool in person.

This one was used as a card by itself.  I used the SU silver glimmer paper for the front of the phone. The chat bubbles are included with the Smart Phone die-namics set.

This is the inside of the card using the fun Friend Request stamp set that matches the die.
