Festive Phrases Detailed Edge Christmas Card

Hello Peaches! I hope you’re have a great week! I have a unique card for you today. In Stampin’ Up!’s new holiday catalog there are some really beautiful dies called Swirly Snowflakes that have an edglit die that creates a stunningly detailed snowflake edge. I have used this for to create snowflakes for some other cards because the die actually has three beautiful snowflakes in a lined pattern, but this time I wanted to use it as intended. However, I wanted to make my card a little different. I wanted it to really feature the snowflake edgelit, so I made the edge shorter than the back fold of the card.

I started by die cutting the main front panel with the snowflake edgelit on the right side. Now since I’m using Thick Whisper White as my base and this die is so detailed, I recommend using the Precision Base Plate with your Bigshot. After running the detailed snowflake edgelit and my card front through, I took a 5 1/4” x 4” piece of Real Red cardstock and ran it through my Bigshot with the other coordinating edgelit die in the set. These two dies are designed to layer together and that’s how you’ll see me use them on my card today.

After cutting my Real Red piece I was ready to layer it behind my snowflake edge. To do this I lined both edges up so that the red was underneath the white snowflakes and the other end of the red piece was lined up with the inside fold of my card so that when you open the card it would have a full panel of Real Red on the inside. I also took a piece of Real Red ribbon and tied it laterally along the edge for added detail.

For my sentiment, I took the one that says “Special Delivery From the North Pole” and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder and fussy cut it out. I also added a star from the Star of Light dies for added dimension and interest. I added a few more details and that finished off my card! Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you next post!
