I created this card as an entry for MFT’s November Guest Designer contest. I started by cutting Kraft cardstock with the Peek-a-Boo Squared Die-namics die.  The layer was stamped with the smallest diamond background from Distressed Diamonds stamp set with Moonlight Brilliance ink.  Winter blues Whimsy paper was adhered behind the openings and the edges were pierced.

The bottom corners of a 2 1/2″ x 3 7/8″ of Winter Blues paper were rounded and adhered to a 4″ square of white cardstock with rounded corners. Silver curling ribbon was tied around the top of the paper layers with a button before all layers were adhered to the card base, a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Patina Bazzill Cardstock with rounded corners. The peek-a-boo layer was adhered to the card base with foam adhesive squares.

Neenah Solar White cardstock was cut with the two smaller dies from Let it Snowflake die-namic dies, stacked and topped with a rhinestone from a Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones. Two small snowflakes were cut out white cardstock as well. The snowflakes were adhered to the panels that didn’t have the tree .

Another piece of white cardstock was cut with a Fishtail Flag Stax and a sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments was stamped in Rocket Red Gold Brilliance Ink. It was adhered in the center of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
