Sparkling Snowflakes, Winter Meadow, Snowflake Sky, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a very easy and quick Christmas card for you to make. If you have scraps of Designer Series Paper (DSP) than this is the card for you. It's a perfect way to use those up. You know the ones. They are too big to recycle and too small to try to do something with them but you hang onto them anyway. Well, grab your larger ones and let's make a card. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Night of Navy card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 5-1/4" x 4-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and I textured it using the "Snowflake Sky" embossing folder. Then I cut the piece down so it measured 5-1/4" x 2-1/8". You get two strips out of this to make two card. I know you have more scraps of DSP!! The textured card stock was glued to the front right of the card. It creates a nice looking layer/border, doesn't it?

Next I trimmed my scrap piece of DSP from the "Winter Meadow" 12" x 12" package to measure 4" x 2-3/4".  And the Night of Navy layer behind it measures 4-1/4" x 3".  If your DSP is smaller you can trim it accordingly. 3-3/4" x 2-1/2" will work too and then add a 4" x 2-3/4" layer behind it. I taped my layers together and added Dimensionals to the back. I set the piece in place on the front of the card, centering it as best as I could.

The words are from the "Sparkling Snowflakes" set and were stamped using Night of Navy ink on a scrap of Basic White card stock. They were die cut using the second smallest circle die in the "Stylish Shapes" set. Dimensionals were added to the back and the word piece was set in place on the front of the card.

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock was cut and was taped to the inside of the card and the card was done.

Isn't it a fun card? You can use this layout for other occasions and use up some of that DSP you're hanging onto. I don't like the word hoarding. I try to use them, I'm not holding back, I just have too many to pick from. Stampin' Up! prints on both sides so you've got 12 designs to work with. That makes it difficult to use it all up too!

This was a super quick card to make and that leaves me with some free time to clean up my worktable a bit. I'd love to clean it all off but I need a few more days of quick cards to have that kind of time!  At least the space I have to work is now larger than a dinner plate!  LOL  Funny but kind of sad too!

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