what you will need:
Little Claire Silhouette Santa stamp
6" x 6" base card
white linen card
Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder
die cutting machine
Versa Mark water mark ink pad
Stampin Stuff Winter Wonderland Opaque embossing powder
anti static pad
blue & white ribbon
ring binder hole punch
Stick the linen card onto the base card and cut to size.
Cut a piece of the plain white card so that it can be used with the embossing folder and run through the die cutting machine. Do this twice.
Measure 2 11/16" down from the edge of the longest side of the embossed design and cut. Do the same with the other piece of card.
Align the two pieces of card along the cut edge and stick together on the reverse with sticky tape, remember to line up the side edges of the embossed design (don't worry that the patterns don't match up as the ribbon will cover this).
Cut the embossed card to the required size.
Attach a piece of ribbon along the join of the embossed card and secure around the back.
Mat and layer the embossed card onto a piece of blue card and stick the whole lot onto the base card.
Rub the anti static pad over a piece of blue card.
Using the Versa Mark ink pad stamp the Silhouette Snowman image onto the blue card.
Sprinkle the Winter Wonderland embossing powder over the image and shake off the excess.
Heat from behind with the heat gun.
Cut the image down to size and stick onto the base card using foam pads.
For my sentiment I used a pre-set sentiment from my graphics program (Craft Artist) and re sized it to 2" and then coloured it blue, but if you like to stamp your sentiment then stamp it onto a piece of white linen card using a dark blue ink pad.
Cut the sentiment to size and mat and layer it onto a piece of blue card.
Stick the sentiment onto the base card using a strong glue.
Punch 6 dots from the blue card using the hole punch and bevel them.
Stick the dots onto the card.
