Winter Snow, Christmas Layers, Snowman Season, Christmas Card, 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I still had my "Feels Like Frost" Designer Series Paper (DSP) stack sitting on my worktable. Not surprising, I don't put things away very quickly.  I was looking through the stack an thought how pretty this image would look highlighted in a circle. And I was hoping it would look as good on paper as it was in my head.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock and I die cut the circle using the 2-11/16" die.  Then I textured it with the "Winter Snow" embossing folder. This folder is the most prettiest snowflake folder I've seen. I am going to keep it forever or until I use it so much it no longer embosses! LOL  Can that happen???

The die cut circled piece was set on top of the image. I moved it around until I liked what I saw in the opening.  I trimmed any DSP that was sticking over the top piece. Dimensionals were added around the backside of the circle and the DSP was set in place. Additional Dimensionals were added to the back of the circle piece and some snail tape to the back of the DSP and the piece was set in place.

I die cut a snowflake from the "Christmas Layers" dies. I didn't buy a new snowflake set, this one was still current. I need to make some spending cutbacks and since I had a snowflake die I was fine.  I glued the right side of the snowflake to the outside of the circle. 

The words are from the "Snowman Season" set and were stamped on a 5" x 1" piece of Whisper White card stock using Night of Navy ink. I used the "Triple Banner" punch on each end. The piece was set in place using Dimensionals and the card was done.

This was a very quick and easy card to make. With this layout, you can use any image in the center, even family photos. Or if you are like me, a photo of a snowman you made! I love making snowman and I'm hoping we get a nice wet snow so I can go out and play later this winter. By later I mean after the holidays!  Like that would ever happen in Minnesota!!! 

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,
