White Christmas

These three cards are for my upcoming (next week!!) card class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. All of these cards feature Cuttlebug Die Cuts and Cuttlebug Embossing folders.

First two cards measure 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" and the last card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

On the first card, I cut out the Snowflake from white cardstock as well as from the thin chipboard (I used one of so many coasters that I already have on hand). Snowflake was embossed with Swiss Dots and then adhered to the chipboard shape. On the square behind the snowflake I made a "frame" using the Scor-Pal. White Pearl Dew Drop in the center of the Snowflake.

On the second card, I cut out and embossed the oval with Nestabilites. Embossed image is inside of the oval, I really like how this has turned out. Snowflakes from Lizzie Anne Designs were stamped with Gold Encore ink. The greeting is from Lizzie Anne Designs as well. Stickles in the centers of the stamped snowflakes and on the snow on the image inside of the oval. White Pearl Dew Drops in the corners.

On the third card, I first made the border on the bottom of the card with the Scor-Pal and then embossed the top of the layer with Swiss Dots. The Ornaments was cut out from the white cardstock and one more from the thin chipboard (just like the snowflake on the first card). I embossed the ornament with the Snowflake folder and then adhered to the chipboard. Ribbon on the top of the Ornament and Dew Drops on both sides of the greeting (the greeting is by Penny Black).

This class is scheduled for:

Thursday, December 4th, 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Friday, December 5th, 11 am to 2:00 pm

To sign up for the class, please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151.

Beautiful cards. I wish I lived close enough to take your classes. I enjoyed the make-n-take at the Carson show.

Sorry this is a late request, but would love to see a tutorial on how you used your Scor-Pal to make your frames on the second card. Love them all, but really love that frame! Thanks, Dorothy Freber (
