Short & Sweet Saturday - Quick Snowflake Sentiments Card


Happy Saturday! Here's this week's Short & Sweet Saturday card. Are you looking for a super quick Christmas card? This is it! I really like how it looks, too.

I used the Holly Textured Impressions Embossing Folder that I'm offering FREE to those of you that place a qualifying online order from me by August 30, 2017. Click on the August Host Code picture near the bottom of this post to find out how you can get it FREE!

Dimensions:
  • Old Olive:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base) & 1-1/2" x 2-1/4" (tree)
  • Whisper White:  4" x 5-1/4" (embossed layer)
  • Crumb Cake:  scraps (deer)
  • Silver 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon:  6"
  • Old Olive 1/8" Sheer Ribbon:  6"
Instructions:
  1. Fold the Old Olive card base piece in half to make a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card base. Set aside.
  2. Stamp the "Merry Christmas..." stamp from the Snowflakes Sentiments Stamp Set onto the bottom, right corner of the Whisper White embossed layer piece using the Basic Black Archival Stampin' Pad. Place the piece into the Holly Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF). Place it inside so the bottom edge of the folder is above the greeting, and the left side is angled down (see picture, above right). Carefully run it through Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, making sure the TIEF doesn't rub the edge of the Big Shot. If the bottom, right corner of the cardstock gets scrunched a little bit, flatten it back out. Wrap the Silver 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon across the bottom of the embossed edge, and attach the ribbon ends to the back of the embossed layer. Wrap the Old Olive 1/8" Sheer Ribbon around the center of the attached ribbon, and attach the ribbon ends to the back. Attach the embossed layer to the card base.
  3. Die-cut the single-tree die from Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies out of the small Old Olive piece. Attach the tree to the left side of the card (over the ribbon) using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. Die-cut the deer die out of a scrap piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock, and attach it to the bottom, right of the tree using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.
