Snowflake Frame - 3 Xmas Cards

 Yogi here today with a loooong post... with several Christmas cards using the Snowflake Circle Frame in various sizes. Love this eCut that Suzanne created and available on the Silhouette onLine Store HERE and the Heart Snowflake HERE


First Card: Take Time to Delight
I Side folded my dark blue card (5"w x 5"h). Embossed the front using Sizzix"Snowflake" set embossing folder.

eCut the snowflake frame at 4"dia on 110# white cardstock. Sponged Distress "Tumbled Glass" all over then some "Tattered Rose". Dried. Stamped the quote "Take Time to Delight" using Versamark and embossed with silver embossing powder.

Applied white glue on the snowflake edge and sprinkled with Stampendous "Crystal Snow" glitter. Adhered frame to card front.

eCut the snowflake, inked with the Versamark and embossed with "Rainbow Sparkle" embossing powder. Adhered to card front with a 3D foam tape and added a pearl heart.

Second Card: - Tri Fold - Snowflakes Are Kisses
Card made using light blue cardstock. Card is scored (left side at 2.5") and (right side at 2.75"). Card closed is 4"w x 6"h

Embossed the left flap with Sizzix "Snowflakes". Wrapped a piece of Sari ribbon (Denim) around the flap and tied a bow.

Lay the snowflake frame (4" dia) on my cutting mat and eCut. Sponged with Distress "Chipped Sapphire", dried, then applied the glue on the snowflakes and sprinkled with Stampendous "Crystal Snow" glitter. eCut a basic 2.75" circle and stamped the quote "Snowflakes are Kisses..." using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Sponged the circle with "Broken China" then with the Sapphire, sprinkled with water and dried. I found it too dark so went over it with Distress Stain "Picket Fence" Hit the edge of the circle with Deco Arts "Snow Writer" and heat activated. Adhered circle to snowflake frame and then to the front flap. eCut another frame (same 4" size) and adhered to the back on the inside to give it more body. Stamped the larger of the "Merry Christmas Snowflakes"  using Versafine "Majestic Blue" and clear embossing.

Stamped the Snowflakes "Merry" and "Christmas" "Snowflakes are Butterflies" on the inside with the blue and clear embossed.

Final touch, eCut the snowflake, inked with the Versamark and embossed with "Rainbow Sparkle" embossing powder. Adhered to card front with a glue gun to the center of the bow. Added a pearl heart.




















For this third card: Booklet - Christmas Waves a Magic Wand

I side folded my white card (5.5"w x 4.25"h). Embossed the front and the inside using Cuttlebug "Winter Frolic" set. On the inside, sponged with a dirty blue sponge.

I had left over pieces from 2 previous cards (light blue and deep blue), so trimmed them down a bit and adhered them to the front. Edged one of the flaps of the deep blue with a Versamark pad and embossed with "Queen's Gold" embossing powder.

eCut the snowflake frame - 1 at 3" dia (front) and one at 2.5" dia (inside). Stamped the quote "Christmas Waves a Magic Wand..." using Versafine "Majestic Blue" and clear embossed. Hit the snowflakes with the Versamark pad and embossed with the gold. Adhered to light blue front piece.

Next page I eCut the "Noel, inked with Versafine "Toffee" and embossed with the gold. Adhered to light blue layer. This light blue layer was then adhered to front of deep blue.

eCut the snowflake, inked with the Versamark and embossed with "Rainbow Sparkle" embossing powder. Adhered to light/deep blue layer. Added a pearl heart.

Stamped the "Merry Christmas Snowflake" using the blue and clear embossed on the smaller snowflake frame. Adhered to deep blue layer.
