Frosty Noel

I love soft blue and white winter cards – they look so elegant without having to fuss much.  And I love snowflakes die cut from our Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper – they really do look so frosty!  So this card uses both and comes together very quickly.

I started with a card base of Soft Sky cardstock cut 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded at 5-1/2″.  Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ and ran it through the Big Shot using the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions embossing folder.  I cut a length of Silver Satin Ribbon to wrap around the bottom of the panel and adhered the ends on the back using Fast Fuse.  The panel was then glued straight to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Next, I stamped the letters on a scrap of Whisper White in Soft Sky ink.  The letters are from the Brushwork Alphabet stamp set – love that script font!  Then, I die cut each of the letters using the smallest of the Stitched Shapes square dies, and while I had the Big Shot out then cut 4 squares of Soft Sky cardstock using the next size up Stitched Shapes square die.  The letter squares are popped up onto their mats using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The completed squares are glued directly to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For finishing touches, I made a bow with more of the Silver Satin Ribbon and adhered it to the bottom with a glue dot.  I had some extra small snowflakes die cut from our Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper left over from another card and they were perfect as accents here and there.  (The snowflake die is from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets set).  For an extra bit of sparkle I added rhinestones to the center of each  And that completed the card!

I hope you enjoyed this one – it really is quite easy to put together so I hope you will give it a try.  Let me know if you have any questions about how this card was made.  And if you need any supplies, please consider shopping with me by clicking the Shop Online button in the upper right.  I would love to be your demonstrator!
