I have t say this is probably one of my favorites of all the Christmas cards I have made this season. It is really hard to show in the picture of how pretty the glitter is for the snow and how elegant it looks.
To make this card you will need the following products:
Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #119685
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
Whisper White Cardstock #100730
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
- cut at 4 1/4" x 4 1/2"
- cut at 2" x 4 1/4"
I cut out the two white pieces of cardstock using the Hometown Greetings Edgelits. The wonderful thing about these edgelits is that the bottom of them don't cut. So you can place them where ever you want to on your paper and the bottom will be left alone. So I put both of the pieces as close to the top of my paper so I would have blank space on the bottom. That way I can layer them and give the card dimension.
Once you have them cut, I laid the biggest piece (the one with the church) on my card base, but did not adhere it. I wanted to see where it was going to go so I knew where to emboss my sentiment. Once I knew exactly where I wanted it, I embossed it using the white embossing powder. I also added little stars all around it, again using the white embossing powder.
For the snow I put Multipurpose Glue on the bottom sections of the white paper and added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. It sparkles and looks like snow with the sun or moon shining on it. Here is a closer look at the area with snow.
I used sentiments for the front and inside of my card from the Hearts Come Home stamp set. This set is going to be carried over after the first of the year. You will be able to get the stamp set and edgelits, but not as a bundle. So, if you would like to get this stamp set and framelits you can order it until January 2nd as a bundle and save 10%.
When I put the top layer of white paper on I adhered it with Stampin Dimensionals, so it was lifted up a little off the paper.
Do you have any plans for this weekend? I am so excited for this weekend because this is my baking weekend! I spend all weekend and bake, and bake and bake some more. Each year I give my daycare parents goodie bags with 10-15 different baked goods. They look forward to it each year. I have had husbands hide different treats from their wives, so they get all of it. LOL
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend!
