Reason for the Season – a Simple Card

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Our home was filled with laughter with kids scurrying everywhere!  There were 18 of us this year!  Then, my sister and brother-in-law came to visit us today. Such good memories!  Love my family so.

I have a little time to share with you a clean and simple card.  I used the Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies to create this winter scene.





Can you see the clear mica flakes on the tree and a few sprinkled on the ground?

Here’s the details to make this quick card.

  • Start with a Marina Mist card base – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ folded in half
  • Emboss a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.
  • Using the tree from the Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies from a 3 1/2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock.
  • Stamp the greeting from the Reason for the Season set using Marina Mist ink in the lower right corner of the tree piece.
  • Tear a piece of scrap paper and sponge the snow drifts on the tree piece using Marine Mist.
  • Add a a very small amount of glue to the areas you want to add mica flakes on the tree piece then sprinkle the flakes over the piece.
  • Adhere the embossed piece to the card base, then add the tree piece to the embossed panel.
