Frosty Beauty

Well, it's true, snowflakes are probably one of my favorite images to work with in stamping/die cutting.  As evidenced by some of my latest cards.  Here's a bright and cheerful card for the holidays, once again, using the new Small Oval Christmas Tidings stamp set from's loaded with so many great it!

Even with the layers this card comes together pretty quickly.

Base:  5&1/2" by 4&1/4" white cardstock A2 sized base.

First layer:  5&1/4" by 4" red cardstock.

Second layer:  5" by 3&3/4" silver POW glitter paper.

Third layer: 4&3/4" by 3&1/2" snowflake patterned paper (Doodlebug Here Comes Santa Claus)

Center panel:  First create the strip for the left side of the card by stamping the small snowflake in Festive Berries Distress Ink on a 1" by 4&3/4" piece of white cardstock.  TIP:  Start by stamping the center snowflake first and work out from there.  Mat this piece on a 1&1/4" by 4&3/4" piece of red cardstock.

Next create the base by matting the tree patterned paper (2&1/2" by 3&1/2") on a piece of red cardstock (2&3/4" by 3&3/4").  Cut POW silver glitter paper using the Vintage Labels Eleven die (3" wide die) and glue to the tree patterned paper base.

Stamp the large snowflake using Festive Berries ink and fussy cut out.  Cut red cardstock using the  1&3/4" Vintage Labels Eleven die.  Foam tape center panel to card front, and foam tape snowflake and red Vintage Labels pieces.  Stamp sentiment on white cardstock and trim to a banner (3/4" wide and about 2&1/4" long), then brush edges with ink.  Foam tape to center of red Vintage Labels piece.

To finish add a little bling and a bow.
