"Let It Snow" Stampin Up Christmas Card

"Let It Snow"

Welcome to Barb's Paper Pizzazz!  So happy you decided to stop by and take a look at what I have done for you this week.

This card will be made this Tuesday in my classes bu all my wonderful ladies who enjoy making paper crafted cards that I design  This card is simple to construct and it uses watercolor for the background color.

  • This card starts with your base card stock for the card that measures 8.5 x 5.5 inches. Score the card at 4.5 inches.
  • The liner is a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Card stock that measures 4 x 5 1/4 inches.
  • Next is a piece of watercolor paper that measures 3 3/4 x 5 inches.  I took the Real Red ink and squeezed the ink pad to deposit some ink in the lid.  Also did the same for the Lemon Lime Twist ink.  I took my aqua pen and diluted the ink in the lid and spread the inked water over the watercolor paper lightly in areas all over the paper, mixing the placement of the colored inks over the entire card.  You can let it dry at room temperature but I proceeded to use my heat gun to dry it out quickly so that I could proceed with making the card.
  • I selected the sled from the framelits called " Alpine Sports" and cut one in Real Red card stock.  I embellished the sled by adding an Old Olive wreath and a silver glitter paper bow to add some pizzazz to the sled (from the same die set).  I also added some baker's twine that I had left over from last year but you can substitute any bakers twine or ribbon you may have on hand as a substitute.
  • The snowflakes in the background are cut from the snowflake die from the same set.  I added some Dazzling Diamond glitter to the snowflakes.
  • The "Let It Snow" greeting is stamped in Real Red Ink from the Alpine Adventure stamp set on watercolor paper and is cut out with scalloped oval framelit in the Alpine Sports framelit set.  Your card is done....beautiful!
