Cuttlebug Christmas Card

Here's another Christmas in July card that I have made.

Blue card for card base
Silver card for a mat
White card to emboss
Scraps of white card for snow
Kindy Glitz - Crystalline
A2 Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Snowflakes
Cuttlebug Combo - Ice Crystal
Cuttlebug Die - Snowflake #2

All products can be purchased from Rose-Anne at Cropworks.

This card was quite easy to make. Just run your white card stock through with the embossing folder. Then, using up your scraps of white card run through with the die and cut two or three so you have a nice selection. Cut the Ice crystal and adhere all die cuts to your card front. Mount on the silver and then on your card front.
Carefully lift each 'stem' of the crystals/flakes so that they're not sitting on the card front. Add Kindy Glitz. Go back and ensure that all 'stems' are up off the card front and leave to dry.
If you're one of those that needs to go back and check to see if it's dry and in the process you wreck your work try this - using a scrap of card, put some Kindy Glitz on it in roughly the same amount as you use for your project and leave to one side. Then when the urge takes you to check, check the scrap and that way you're not running the risk of ruining your work.
This would also look lovely with the Winter House folder and glue the small stars and snowflakes onto the top of the card with the Winter House on the bottom and then use Kindy Glitz to embellish it. I don't have that folder to experiment with, so if you try it I'd love to see what you come up with - email me.
