Seasons Greetings

This is the last of the cards that I did for the Fall workshop.  When I saw that Memento Teal color I knew I had to use it.  Below are the directions.  Hope you enjoy.


            JustRite: Large Fancy Holiday Sentiments
            JustRite:  Snowfall background
            Spellbinders: Create a Flake Four
            White card base cut 5.5 x 8.5  score at 4.25 for an A2 card
            White 4.25 x 5.5 (to stamp the background)
            White 1 x 4.25 ( to stamp the sentiment)
            American Craft Glitter White cut 1.25 x 4.25  and the Snowflake
            Memento Teal Zeal
            Archival (Ranger or Versafine) Black
            Kaiser silver or clear
            Gelly Roll pen-Silver or Clear
            Pop dots           

1.  Stamp the background stamp using Teal Zeal on  the 4.25 x 5.5.  The card is smaller than the stamp so line up the top of the card with the top of the stamp  (HINT:  place the paper on top of the stamp, use a scrap piece of paper and press over the full surface).  Mount this on the card base.

2.  Using the Gelly Roll pen highlight five (5) snowflakes on the top and another five (5) on the bottom.

3.  Place one gem in the center of each snowflake.

4.  Line up the White Glitter strip over the unstamped area of the background and adhere to card.

5.  Stamp Sentiment on the plain white strip  to the right leaving room for the snowflake and center over the glitter strip.

6.  Add the Snowflake cut with the AC Glitter paper and Spellbinder Die.  Put a gem in the center.  Pop Dot this to raise it on the card.

  1. Found you through the Holiday Card Workshop. This is so pretty! I really love the simplicity of the teal and white color scheme against the busy snowflake background.


Thank you for your comments. They are like hot cocoa in winter that makes you feel warm inside.
