Wow! I can’t believe how fast the time is going! 11 days until Christmas! I still need to get my cards out. I have them all made, the letter is written, I just need to put the letter and card in an envelope and address them. That is my goal for today.
This is an easy Fun Fold using the Snowflake Wishes stamp set and Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper. You can put this card together quickly and have a festive winter card ready to send out in no time.
This lovely wintery card is great for showcasing your Designer Series Paper. I know I have quite a stash. Pick out 3 different designs of the Snowflake Splendor DSP.
Measurements: Pool Party Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 11 inches with score lines at 1 3/8 inch, 4 1/8 inches and 6 7/8 inches; Pool Party CS belly band: 1 1/4 x 10 inches scored at 3 1/2 inches and 7 5/8 inches; Snowflake Splendor DSP: two at 1 1/8 x 5 1/4 inches, 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches and 3 7/8 x 5 1/4 inches; and Whisper White CS: 2 1/2 x 4 inches, 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches and 3/4 x 4 inches. You will also need 10 inches of the 1/4 inch Snowflake Splendor Ribbon to adhere to the belly band, and you will need a bow.
With Bermuda Bay ink stamp the sentiment “May Your Season Sparkle” onto the 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS. Use Pool Party ink to stamp the group of small snowflakes on the corners. Note: Remember to use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat or a catalog to stamp on with the Photopolymer Stamps to be sure to get the best images.
Use the Bermuda Bay ink to stamp the sentiment “Snowflake Wishes For a Merry Christmas” onto the 3/4 x 4 inch strip of Whisper White CS. Use Pool Party ink to stamp a snowflake onto the 2 1/2 x 4 inch Whisper White CS. Use the 2 1/4 inch Circle Punch to punch out the snowflake. Set aside.
Fold the Pool Party CS card base as shown. Use your Bone Folder to make all of the folds nice and crisp. Lay the card flat on the table.
Adhere one of the 1 1/8 x 5 1/4 inch pieces of the Snowflake Splendor DSP on the front flap.
Open the card and lay flat on the table. Adhere the other 1 1/8 x 5 1/4 inch piece of Snowflake Splendor DSP to the other side of the front flap. Next adhere the 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 inch Snowflake Splendor DSP and then the 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS with the sentiment stamped on it.
Finish with the 3 7/8 x 5 1/4 inch Snowflake Splendor DSP on the last panel.
Fold the card up again and wrap the 1 1/4 x 10 inch Pool Party CS around the card snuggly. This is the belly band. You want it to slide off easily but not fall off. Adhere the end in front.
Cut a banner end on both ends of the sentiment and adhere to the lower portion of the belly band.
Wrap the 10-inch piece of the Snowflake Splendor Ribbon around the belly band and glue in place with the ends meeting in front. Adhere the snowflake with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere the Snowflake Splendor Ribbon bow with glue dots.
There are a lot of Bling! possibilities for this card to make it sparkle. I used both the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the Snowflake Adhesive-Backed Embellishments.
I placed the light blue Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels in the center of and around the large snowflake, then added the Snowflake Embellishments to the background.
Viola! You have a beautiful Fun Fold for sending Christmas Wishes!
I really appreciate you stopping by today. I hope you try this fun card. Best of luck with all your Christmas cards if you haven’t gotten them out yet.
Have a wonderful week and stay crafty!
