The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base in light blue cardstock. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock in the middle at the 5-1/2″ mark on the long side. Then take one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the middle on the long edge at 4-1/4″. Now, you have a base!
For the other cuts you’ll need:
- Cardstock – White, cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″ and a scrap piece
- Cardstock – Blue, cut to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ and scrap piece
- Cardstock – Black, cut to 5-1/2 x 4-1/4″
- Cardstock – Silver (Recollections Foil Cardstock Paper 65lb)
Let’s start by cutting out all the dies. From the blue cardstock, cut out the largest banner die. From the white cardstock, cut the second smallest inverted circle die. From the black cardstock, line up as perfectly as possible the two largest A2 frame dies and tape them together. Add to that the second largest banner die and the 3rd smallest inverted circle die. You can tape them all together and run it through the machine all at one time. From the silver paper, die cut one of the large snowflake dies and 2 of the smaller ones.
On the white cardstock brush paradise ink around the edge. Stamp the Mini Snowflake in twilight ink, stamping all over the panel. Clean the stamp. Stamp the Mini Delicate Snowflake in warm breeze ink. Stamp the Tiny Solid Snowflake in blue belle ink and the other Tiny Delicate Snowflake in paradise ink. Dry the panel with a heat tool.
Brush the panel with an anti-static bag. Stamp the Mini Delicate Snowflake in VersaMark ink and stamp all over the panel. Don’t worry about stamping in the middle as much. Sprinkle on white embossing powder. Shake off excess and heat with a heat tool.
On the white inverted circle die cut, brush the edges with whatever is left in the blue brush. Stamp the, “Let it Snow” sentiment in the center with twilight ink. Glue the white inverted circle die cut to the black inverted circle die cut.
Glue the black frame to the stamped panel. Glue the large snowflake die cut to the upper center of the card. Using a fine liner pen, trace around the snowflake die cut. Glue the black banner on top of the blue banner and glue them about 1/2″ from the bottom of the stamped panel and off let it to the left, make the binding of the card and then cut off that excess of the banner. Glue to the card. Add the other snowflakes, gluing them in place. Add three adhesive pearls to the banner. Add adhesive tape to sentiment die cut and adhere it to the center of the big die cut snowflake.
For the envelope, brush on the perimeter what’s left in the blue blending brush. Stamp the snowflakes in various colors along the edge of the envelope, leaving the space for the return address blank.
