This Christmas Card is made from the Snow Swirled Stamp Set which we know most of you already have. We just love this stamp set and every year we try to do something different with it. This is the card that last year Wendy wouldn't even cut for us because she thought you guys were all tired of it. But it is by far one of the most popular cards we make. This card is perfect when you need to send FLAT cards in the mail.
The bottom of the card is randomly stamped using the Snow Swirled stamp set with Basic Grey Ink. The Basic Grey top piece was run through the Big Shot with the Northern Flurries Embossing Folder. We put a strip of black across the middle to hide the seam.
The ribbon, believe it or not, is actually considered a Halloween Ribbon from the Holiday Mini Catalog (pg 26). We thought it was much too elegant to use for Halloween. Remember, the ribbon is only available until the end of December when the Holiday Catalog runs out. Make sure to stock up if you like it!
The saying is stamped using Real Red Classic Ink and then punched out with the Curly Label Punch. We also punched a piece of Basic Black cardstock to add a shadow layer. The greeting on the inside of the card is from Snow Swirled too.
The snowflakes were from a Big Shot Die that is retired. I know, we don't often use retired stuff. But, many of you have this die. The three snowflakes were attached in layers to give the card depth. The bottom snowflake was glued on using green glue with the silver brad then attached through the step down layer.. The middle snowflake was attached with only the brad through the Basic Grey piece and the top snowflake had the brad just through the snowflake and then attached using dimensionals.
So, to answer Wendy's question… Should we keep making a new card each year featuring this stamp set? Let us know in the comment section.
