Feels Like Frost, Christmas Layers, Itty Bitty Christmas, Christmas Card

If you don't have the new "Feels Like Frost" 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (DSP), I highly recommend you get it.  This paper is SO pretty and easy to work with.  Many of them you can just cut and add some words or embellishments and you are done.

Today I used the DSP to create this card.  The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Balmy Blue card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the "Feels Like Frost" DSP.  I cut my image off for two reasons. One I mostly wanted a cold snowy looking image and two, I wanted to save the more detailed image for another future card.  An easy future card.  Maybe tomorrow???  Or sometime this week anyway.  I taped the DSP on top of the card base.

I die cut 7 snowflakes using the new "Christmas Layers" dies.  I set them on the card for placement so I knew where I could put the words.  

The words are from the "Itty Bitty Christmas" set.  I stamped them using black Memento ink.  I didn't set up my Stamparatus right and I squished the g and s at the end of greetings.  I should have taken the foam mat off because I was using a foam red rubber stamp.  But it is what it is, there's no going back after you stamp that.  Other than stamping on a separate piece of card stock and layering the words on top.

After stamping the words, I added the snowflakes using small Dimensionals.  I added a crystal rhinestone to the center of each snowflake and a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock to the inside and the card was done.

The backside of the DSP is white and silver images.  VERY fun to play with too but I love the realistic images better.  But when you cut 4" off a 6" piece you have 2" piece to play with and can use the other side.  

This was a very fun and quick card to make.  And pretty too!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
