Snowman Season, Wintry 3D Folder, Christmas Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

I had purchased the "Wintery" 3D embossing folder and have not used it much. It's not a full size folder so that's part of the reason. But today I thought I'd use it in strips and make it fill up a page. So here's how I made my card.

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

I embossed the card stock. The piece of card stock that fit in the folder was enough to cut three 7/8" wide by 4" long pieces. So I had to texture another piece because I needed one  more.

I cut a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8 piece of Basic White card stock and glued the 4 strips to the top, leaving 1/8" on the sides and top.  Then I stamped the words from the "Snowman Season" set using Pool Party ink.

I took some white ribbon that I had and wrapped it around the card stock. Then I added a thinner Pool Party colored ribbon on top of it to bring in a bit more color to the card.  I taped the ribbon to the back and then added scotch tape to secure it even more.  I added Dimensionals to the back and set the piece on top of the card base.

I had snowflakes left from the card I had made on the 18th. You can see hit by clicking here.  I have several of the spritzed Stitched Snowflakes sitting around from that card.  It was nice to actually be able to use one. I set the snowflake in place using a small Dimensional and then I added a crystal rhinestone to the center and the card was done.

This card was super quick and easy and I could see myself using up those larger snowflakes making more cards like this. I have three more so that shouldn't be too bad.  Plus I have an extra panel because you can get three off one piece of textured card stock. So I guess I'll be making them!!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's Christmas card,
