Colorful Seasons Snowflake Card

Make your own designer paper by embossing the snowflakes from Colorful Season in gold and silver. Cut your paper at an angle for an unusual effect.


1. Cut a whisper white base and 5 1/2 by 8. Score at 4 1/4 and fold. Cut two more whipser white pieces at 5 1/4 by 4. One is for the outside and one is for the inside.

2. Cut one of the white card stock pieces on an angle for the front. My left is at 3 1/4 and my right is at 2 1/4.

3. On the top angled pieces stamp the three larger snowflakes in versamark and emboss them with gold embossing powder. Stamp the three smaller snowflakes in versamark and emboss them with silver embossing powder.

4. On the bottom emboss the snowflake from the Winter Wonderland embossing folder. Stamp the words from Hearts Come Home across the bottom in versamark and emboss them in gold.

5. Use the snowflake thinlits and cut out one large gold foil snowflake and 2 small silver foil snowflakes.

6. Use dimensionals to attach the two angled pieces on the card base. Cut a gold foil angled 1/2 wide piece to fit and tape it across the line where the two white pieces meet.

7. Tape the snowflakes on under the gold foil strip.

8. I embossed the words from Hearts Come Home (gold) and some more snowflakes (gold and silver) on the inside and embossed gold and silver snowflakes on the envelope.

Count Your Blessings

I love how Copic markers makes this card pop. I also added cut outs of the acorns using dimensionals to add dimension. A little Wink of Stella on the acorn tops to give it some sparkle. 

1. Cut the pumpkin pie card base at 5 1/2 x 11. Score and fold it at 4 1/4. Emboss the front using the layered leaves embossing folder.

2. Using chocolate chip ink stamp the acorns and leaves on whisper white card stock. Color one using copics or Stampin' Blends. I will list the Copic colors I used at the end. Color and cut the acorns out of the second image.  I did not color the acorns on the first image. I only outlined the with a brown copic marker to give the appearance of coloring. Use the thin side of a chocolate chip marker to color in the branches.

3. Cut the colored image out using the stitched circle framelits. Cut a solid circle of garden green using the layering circles framelits. Tape these together. Use dimensionals to add the cut out acorns to the image. Add sparkle to the acorn tops with Wink of Stella.

4. Cut garden green card stock at 2 x 5 1/2 and whisper white at 1 3/4 x 5 1/2. Stamp the words on the whisper white card stock using chocolate chip ink. I used the words from Painted Harvest on the front. Using chocolate chip ink stamp the large leaf from the acorn stamp three times around the words. Color the leaves with Copics. Attach the white to the garden green.

5. Attach the long strip to the card front. Use dimensionals to attach the acorn image. 

6. Tie a bow with linen thread and attach this to the stem using a glue dot.

7. For the inside stamp the words and a partial acorn image with chocolate chip ink on whisper white card stock cut at 5 1/4 x 4. Color the image with Copics. Attach it to the inside.

8. I stamped the entire acorn image with chocolate chip ink on the envelope. I did not color it.

Copic Colors I used:
Acorns: E59,39,37,35
Acorn Tops: E49,59,39
Orange: YR09,07,16
Yellow: Y19,15,13
Green: YG67,63,13

Hearts Come Home Bridge Card

Hearts Come Home Bridge Card

Step 1:
*Cut the base at 4 1/4 x 8. Score at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 5 1/2,and 6 3/4. 
*Cut the bridge piece (front) at 4 x 5 5/8. Cut the church thinlit out of this placing the steeple as high as you can. Hand cut to the ends to release the cutout piece.. You will trim the edges to fit later.
*Cut the back house piece at 3 x 3 3/4.
*Cut the designer series paper for the back at  2 1/2 x 2 3/4 (may want just a smidge wider) and 4 more pieces at 1 x 4 for the four sides.

Using Versamark  stamp Joy To The World in the center of the Bridge piece. Heat emboss with gold embossing powder.  *Tip: The embossing buddy will help you not have gold flakes around the words after heat embossing.

Step 3:
Emboss the bottom only of both cut house pieces with the falling snow embossing folder. 

Step 4:
Fold on all score lines on the base. Add the designer paper to each panel. 

Step 5:
Lay the houses down on gold foil paper. Trace around each house (and the church) with a pencil. Hand cut these and tape them to the back of each house.

Step 6:
Use dimensionals to attach the back houses to the back panel. Be sure the card will lay flat when the smaller panels are closed over it. 

Step 7:
Punch a gold foil strip to fit (5 5/8 inches) using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. Tape it to the bottom of the bridge piece.Tape the bridge piece to the front of the card using Tear Tape for extra hold. Be sure to only tape on the two front side panels so the card will fold flat both right and left to fit in the envelope. Trim off any excess from the bridge piece sides. 

Step 8:
Use a Glue Dot to attach a small bow near the embossed words. 

Winter Wonder Shaker Card

The big snowflake on the Winter Wonder embossing folder makes a perfect background for a shaker card. The foam tape and window sheets make quick shaker cards.

1. Cut a 4 1/4 x 11 base out of whisper white. Score and fold it at 5 1/2.

2. Cut another piece of whisper white card stock at 4 x 5 1/4. Emboss the snowflake from theWinter Wonderland embossing folder using a Big Shot.

5. Cut a window sheet 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 and tape it to the back of the cut area.

6. Cut a circle 2 1/8 circle from gold foil. Cut the center out using the 1 7/8 circle. Tape this to the outside of the window sheet. 

7. Place foam tape all the way around the backside of the circle. The foam tape should be on the window sheet. Be careful not to leave a gap or the shaker pieces will fall out.

8. Fill the shaker area with some of the metallic sequins. 

9. Cut a piece of whisper white card stock at 2 3/4 x 2 3/4. Cut a gold foil snowflake from the Seasonal Layers thinlits. Tape it to the whisper white card stock where it will show through the window but be up higher than the sequins when resting. Tape the white card stock over the shaker area.
