I created this card for a Way to Use it Challenge (no fall colors) and a CASE study challenge.  I just LOVED the card we had to case and it made me create not just one but several cards. For this one I paired 3/4″ x 3 1/4″ wide strips of different colored blue Bazzill cardstock were adhered to a slightly bigger white base. I used the new Simon Says Stamp Curvy Snowflake die to cut a negative image in the center.  The edges were stitched and the snowflake die cut was adhered over the negative cut.

The layers were adhered to the card base, a 3 3/4″ x 10″ piece of Limeade Bazzill cardstock, folded in half. The bottom corners were rounded.

A piece of Solar White cardstock was cut and with Holiday Folded Banner die. The sentiment and frame is from the same named Simon Says Stamps exclusive stamp set and was stamped on the banner with Jet Black Archival ink. The banner was adhered to the lower right edge of the snowflake panel. Rhinestones on the snowflake and next to the banner finish off the card.

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

P.S.: Today’s Holiday Blitz tutorial on Splitcoaststampers was created by Theresa Momber. She shows you how to turn a circle die cut into a darling basket.
