Happy Tuesday! We are having torrential rains & gale force winds today… in fact some of the state is under ‘state of emergency’ conditions because of it. Please pray for safety for everyone… Today’s card is another pretty easy to do Christmas card. I love the Wonderful Snowflakes that are part of the Wishes & Wonder Suite of products and I’m determined not to hoard them :O)

Encircled w/ a Snowflake.1

That beautiful die cut behind the snowflake is from the Encircled in Beauty Dies ~ and those dies coordinate with TWO stamp sets: Encircled in Friendship from the Annual Catalog and Encircled in Warmth from the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog. It’s. too bad it doesn’t show up more here, but that just means another card is in order to show off the dies 😏 Doesn’t this snowflake look as though it could be hanging in a window somewhere? That was the idea anyway.

How to do this… die cut the ‘wreath circle’ using the Encircled in Beauty Dies and Misty Moonlight card stock. Mount the snowflake in the center of the die cut with a dimensional. Set aside.

Cut three strips of Harvest Meadow DSP: 1 x 4; 1 1/4 x 4 & 2 3/4 x 4. I like to cut a panel 4 x 5 1/4 so the DSP is a continuous pattern that flows down, then trim the bottom section as needed. Adhere these to a Basic White 4 1/8 x 5 1/4, spacing equally. Adhere the snowflake so it is centered right to left. Add the ribbon: here I used Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon in Whisper White, adhered it under the die cut with a glue dot and secured it on the back with Seal+. Create a bow from the same ribbon and attach it with a glue dot. I added the entire panel to the Misty Moonlight card base (4 1/4 x 11) with liquid glue ~ and the card front was done.

Encircled w/ a Snowflake.2

For the inside, I used the trimmed Harvest Meadow DSP from the card front to add it to a Basic White panel 4 x 5 1/4, then stamped this fun sentiment from the Encircled in Warmth stamp set with Misty moonlight ink. This panel was added to the inside of the card & voila!

Encircled w/ a Snowflake.3

For the envelope, I added more of the Harvest Meadow DSP in the same pattern to the envelope flap and trimmed it to fit. Then on the front of the envelope, I stamped the sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink – again using the Encircled in Warmth stamp set.

This is just an extra fun & easy card, easy to look at and appreciate and quick to create as well. This could be done with various Christmas papers/ colors to give it a total different look. I just may have to do that!
