Welcome to my Merry Christmas Monday series for 2020! I am so excited about this project. I saw this online by a couple of different people and loved it. Do you know why I love it? You make the notecard holder with one sheet of 12 x 12 designer series paper. That's it! No adhesive, just a tool to score your paper. How awesome is that?!
I used the fun and so pretty Snowflake Splendor designer series paper from the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog. I love every piece of paper in this pack. Of course, if I am using snowflake paper, I have to have a snowman on it too! I used the new Snow Wonder stamp set and coordinating Snow Time dies. The best part is that you can get both as a bundle and save 10%.
To make the notecard you will need:
- cut at 3 3/8" x 4 7/8"
- cut at 2 3/4" x 3 3/4"
- cut at 1/2" x 2 1/2"
- cut 2 at 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" - one for snowman and one for white behind snowman
- cut at 1/2" x 2 1/2"
Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper:
- cut at 3 1/4" x 4 3/4"
To make the notecard holder you will need:
Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper - 12 x 12 sheet
- on one side score at 2", 5 3/4", 6 1/4" and 10"
- turn paper and score at 2 1/2" and 8 1/4"
What ever side of the paper you want on the left hand side of your notecard holder, make sure that is facing up. It would be too hard to try and explain to you how to fold the paper for you to make the notecard holder, so I made short video on how to fold the paper.
I just went back and watched the video and realized that I folded the notecard holder backwards. LOL You want the straight folds on the outside not the inside.
To make the card I used the Layering Oval dies and Classic Label Punch. I embossed the white piece of cardstock with the Winter Snow embossing folder. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set and stamped with Pool Party ink. To get the color of the snowman, I put Basic Gray ink on the snowman stamp and then stamped it on a scrap piece of paper first (this is called stamping off) and then I stamped it on the Whisper White cardstock. I wanted to do some blending on the snowman so I used the Stampin' Blends to color him. I used the following colors: Black - light, Cherry Cobbler - dark, Mossy Meadow - light, Pool Party - light and dark and Pumpkin Pie - dark.
I added Wink of Stella to the snowman and then added three of the Adhesive Backed Snowflakes.
I love snowmen and I love this little guy. He is so cute!
Thank you for stopping in today. Have a great day and week!
Happy Stampin and
