I’m in the holiday card making mood, now! I just needed to get a kick start, which I got from the Scrap ‘N Stamp Pop Up shop a couple of weekends ago. Picking up some new holiday stamps – and then needing to share them! – got me going. I’m back today with a Let It Snow holiday card in more frosty blue.
LET IT SNOW
I really do love it when it snows! We don’t get a lot of it usually here in Vancouver. It’s quite a moderate climate, and a snowy winter is the exception.
This card is a result of digging through my ‘stash’ of old dies and embossing folders, combined with new inks and paper.
I found this die in an envelope in my stash; no manufacturer or company name, so I can’t share that info with you. I don’t even remember using it before! It comes with 3 oval nesting dies, and the ‘let it snow’ sentiment die. First, die cut the largest oval and sentiment from silver foil paper. Next, die cut the snowflake using that die & the outline oval, from glimmer paper.
Create a card base of light blue cardstock. Next, run a panel of white cardstock through your machine with a dots embossing folder. With a blending brush, lightly add Broken China Distress Oxide ink across the top, so that most of the ink stays on the raised dots. Attach this panel to the card base. Now, cut another panel of the light blue cardstock, and blend on the Broken China ink around the edges. Finally, layer the die cut ovals, using foam dots or tape for the snowflakes.
As is, this card is quick & easy to make. If you want to ‘step it up’ a bit more, you could add some small snowflakes or glitter on the blended panel. Or, get creative and make it a shaker card!
Thanks for spending some time with me today! I hope that you’re having fun creating your own holiday cards, if that’s something you do. I know that I always love to receive them, so I always send them.
