Framed & Festive, Wintry 3D Embossing Folder, Stampin' Up!

Today's card is a very quick and simple one to make. This is not what I had in mind but after doing what I needed to do to make it work I'm happy with the way it turned out.

First you need a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock for your card base.

Then you will need a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock for the layer. I added Dimensionals to the back and set the piece in place on the front of the card base.

I took another 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and textured one end of it using the "Wintry 3D" embossing folder. I used the full quarter sheet because I wanted to make sure I was able to get the entire folder textured onto the card stock. These are not a full-sized folder so you don't get texture on a full piece, it comes down about 3-1/4" x 4".  I trimmed the bottom part off so the piece was 3-1/4" long and 3-7/8" wide. Then I cut the strips just shy of 1" each. To do this I just cut on the shorter side of the 1" mark on my cutter. I added Dimensionals behind each strip. I set the left and the right strips in place and then the center two. You want to make sure you don't mix up the pieces or the image won't be back together, kind of like a puzzle. 

The words are from the "Framed & Festive" set and were stamped using Pool Party ink and die cut using the second largest stitched die from the "Stylish Shapes" die set.

I die cut a Pool Party circle using the 2-7/16" die from the "Layering Circles" die set. I taped the two circles together. I added Dimensonals on the lower part and glue on the upper part. I have an issue with tape when it comes to adding it to an embossed piece. I don't seem to get enough surface contact to make it stick well so I just use glue and know it's going to stay in place. Though this piece would stay in place without any glue or tape because of the Dimensionals but then the upper part might stick up (maybe, I don't know, I didn't let it get that to that point, I glued it). And that was it. Just quick and simple. 

This is a card you could quickly make a lot of in not time. To speed things up you could omit the strips and just use a solid piece instead.

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

The basic white card and snowflakes lend to the idea of "peace" in the sentiment. Very pretty!
