Snowman Magic, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up! 2022 Fall Mini Catalog

This card was not what was in my head when I started out. But this is how it ended up and I'm sharing it with you anyway.

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

I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Balmy Blue for the layer and a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White for the top of the card. 

I had die cut the tree using the die from the "Snowman Magic" bundle. I used the diamond glitter paper with a double-sided sticky sheet behind it so I could make it into a sticker.  The Basic White piece of card stock it's on measures 3" x 1-3/4" and the Balmy Blue layer measures 3-1/8" x 1-7/8".  I set the tree in place about 1/2" up from the bottom edge of the Basic White piece. I taped the two layers together. Then I taped the ends of some pretty "Iridescent Trim" to the back. As I look at it I think I should have wrapped the trim around it all the way to the bottom to give the illusion of snow. I don't know.  What do you think?

I set the tree piece on top of the card front for word placement. The words are from the same "Snowman Magic" set and were stamped using Balmy Blue ink. 

There was a little snowflake die in the set so I die cut a glitter paper one and set it in place using a custom cut Dimensional.

Dimensionals were added to the back of the tree panel and it was set in place on the front of the card.

It's an okay card but not what was in my head. 

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

It may not have been what you had in your head, but it's a great card! I love the little tree sitting on the "snow".
