Let It Snow Christmas Card with Deb Riddell

Hello and thank you for stopping by, Deb Riddell here with you today to share a Christmas card created with lots of wonderful Christmas and winter chipboard from Southern Ridge Trading Company.

I used Southern Ridge’s Poinsetta Drop, Bare Branches and Snowflake chipboard to create my Let It Snow Christmas card and have a few step out photos to share with you, enjoy!

I started out with a white A6 card blank (4½” x 6½”) and cut a front panel from more white cardstock to 4¼” x 6¼”, colouring the front panel with Distress stains and inks in multiple shades of green (Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint and Iced Spruce).  Snowflakes were then stenciled onto the front with embossing ink and heat embossed with Iridescent Shimmer embossing powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies for a subtle shimmery and snowy background.

Three Poinsetta Drop ornaments were painted with gold metallic acrylic paint and then backed with snowflake design scrapbook papers from my stash in shades of blue and teal.

A Snowflake chipboard piece was painted with white acrylic paint and then heat embossed with more Iridescent Shimmer embossing powder.

One of the Bare Branches chipboard pieces was inked with brown Distress stain (Vintage Photo Distress stain).

Opal Deco Foil was adhered to the adhesive side of a length of Rebekah Meier Designs Mixed Media Art Tape.

Three Fold Up Bows were then die cut from the foiled Art Tape.

And the ‘let it snow’ sentiment was die cut from white cardstock covered with more Opal Deco Foil using the Holiday Words 2: Script die.

To assemble the card, the green background panel was adhered to the A6 white card blank and the Bare Branches chipboard piece was glued to the top left corner.  White button thread was coloured with the gold metallic acrylic paint and glued to the back of each of the Poinsetta Drop ornaments and the Opal Deco Foil Fold Up Bows added to the front of each ornament.

The three ornaments were then adhered to the card front so they appeared to be hanging from the Bare Branch.

And finally, the embossed Snowflake and ‘let it snow’ sentiment were added to the bottom of the card.

And that was it, hope that you’ve enjoyed seeing how my Let It Snow Christmas card came together.
