For today’s card, I used my favorite, Ornate Layers Die, to cut Painted Christmas Designer Paper. Prior to gluing this layer to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, I wrapped it in sparkly, Metallic Mesh Ribbon. This was easily taped to the back of the layer.

Christmas Snowflake


Next, I used Word Wishes Dies to cut “Merry Christmas” from Subtles 6X6 Designer Paper. I chose this, because I wanted a lighter shade of Blushing Bride. Since the words would have some “overhang,” I backed them with cardstock, for sturdiness. Then, I brushed Wink Of Stella over the letters for a “frosty” look. Wink Of Stella is fun to use, and will be my Host Code Gift for December. Yay!


The middle strip was created with an Ornate Layers Die, approximately 3 1/2″ X 1″, which I used to cut Basic White Cardstock. After cutting, I embossed it with one of the Wintry Embossing Folders. Then, I layered it on Subtles 6X6 Designer Paper, 1/8″ larger, giving it a 1/16″ border.

Lastly, I glued the strip and letters in place, dotting the “i” with a Metallic Pearl, and attaching an opalescent, Wonderful Snowflake, with a Dimensional.


I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.
