I have met a wonderful demonstrator from Michigan, Ronda Wade, and she has graciously shared this card with us. I love the simplicity and elegance of it. I used the sentiment from a retired stamp set, More Merry Messages, but you could use the Merry Christmas from the Star of Light stamp set.
To make this card you will need the following products:
Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
- cut at 2" x 2"
Gold Glimmer Paper #133719
- cut at 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"
To make this card you will start with embossing your 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla with the sentiment with the Gold Embossing Powder. This will make it easier to figure out the placement of the Winter Wonderland Embossing Folder. You will then emboss the following with the Gold Embossing Powder:
- snowflake for the front (use the 2" x 2" square)
- snowflake on the bottom left hand corner on the inside of the card
- on the bottom left hand corner of your envelope
Punch out the Gold Glimmer Paper with the 2" circle punch and the snowflake with the 1 3/4" circle punch. I used Tear and Tape to adhere my snowflake to the Gold Glimmer Paper and then used Stampin Dimensionals to adhere it to the card. To finish it off I added an little pearl in the middle of the snowflake.
If you want to make it even faster to make, stamp the snowflakes and sentiment with ink instead of embossing with the Gold Embossing Folder. You could do a lot of different color combinations for this card and come up with a lot of different looks.
Don't forget to stop by on Monday for my Merry Christmas Monday series!
