Stitched Snowflakes. Wintry 3D Embossing Folder, Banner Year, Christmas Card

You say you want a quick, easy, simple yet elegant looking Christmas card.  Well, here it is.

I really like the snowflakes in the "Wintery 3D" embossing folder package. The other design is pine needles.  But I like snow and this is SO pretty.  I would rather have had it a full size embossing folder but I guess that makes me try to see the challenge.  So here's what I did with that folder today.

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

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock was cut for the top piece. I used a corner rounder to round the corners. I set this piece face down on my scoring board and I scored the left side at 3/4" down from the top and 5/8" in on the left side. I scored down to 4-5/8".  I turned the piece and scored from the left score line I just made to the 2" mark. This area is not 2" wide, I just scored to the 2" mark. Then I turned the piece again and scored down the right side. And then the bottom was scored.  

I embossed a piece of Basic White card stock using the "Wintry 3D folder.  I cut it at 1-1/4" x 4".  After setting the piece inside the scored area I could see that I needed to trim one end of the strip. It's better to have it too long at this point than too short. I probably trimmed about 1/16" off. I glued the strip in place. I prefer to glue textured pieces over taping them for two reasons.  One the surface is not smooth anymore and two, I don't want to crush the texture. Then I added Dimensionals to the back of the piece and set it in place using Dimensionals. 

I die cut a snowflake from the "Stitched Snowflakes" dies and set it in place using a small Dimensional. A single crystal rhinestone was added to the center.

The words are from the "Banner Year" set and were stamped using Pool Party ink. I stamped them on a 3/8" x 2-3/8" piece of Basic White card stock.  I trimmed the ends and set it in place with small Dimensionals.  And that was it.

This was s very fun, quick and easy card to make. I love using this layout too. It frames in the panel nicely, whether you are using textured card stock or Designer Series Paper (DSP).  

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