Hang Your Stocking, Christmas Stockings, Christmas Card

I found a fun card by Michelle at I Card Everyone.  It was not a Stampin' Up! image but that didn't stop me from trying to convert it.  Her card was made using a snowflake punch that not only punched the snowflake but the border all at the same time.  I couldn't find where it came from but that's okay, I can duplicate it (sort of).

For my card I used a snowflake from one of the stockings from the "Christmas Stockings" Thinlits.  I had cut it using the Dazzling Diamonds glitter paper.  

I used the square Framelits to make the frame. I used the two together in the Big Shot.  They nestled well together, so I figured I'd just see what I got and I got what I wanted!!  A scalloped frame.  The original card is not scalloped.  

I stamped the words and snowflakes from the "Hang Your Stocking" set using Versa Mark and white embossing powder. My embossing shows up a bit vanilla/yellow here because of the lighting in my workroom. But that's okay, it helps you see it better.  But to see it even more clear, just click on the photo!!!

The blue background was done using some rubbing alcohol, a few drops of Marina Mist inker and a couple drops from my "Wink of Stella" painting pen.  I wanted a little sparkle to the blue background. I just spritzed the card stock and let it dry.  I used a square Framelit to cut a piece out to fit over the back of the frame.  I did trim up the ends of a few of the snowflake tips so they wouldn't make the frame bulge.

I taped the snowflake frame layers in place after I had done my embossing.

The top layer seemed a bit flimsy, plus it was kind of warped from heating it up, so I taped it to another piece of Whisper White card stock and trimmed it up.  I set that firm layer in place on a folded half sheet of Whisper White card stock using Dimensionals.  And that was it.  I think it's adorable!!! 

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

The die she used is from Simon says sssd111393. It is a 2 piece set. But I have to say "You nailed it." Great job.
