Interactive Cards featuring Spellbinders’ LET IT SNOWMAN A2 CARDFRONT

Updated: Sep 17

Hello everyone! I have a pair of cards featuring some beautiful new products from Spellbinders' Christmas Flourish Collection. Let It Snowman A2 Cardfront is a combination of adorable and beautiful. I have two interactive cards to share with you ... one easy and the other a bit more advanced. Both are on backgrounds using a beautiful new embossing folder, Holly Flourish Embossing Folder.

THE SNOWMAN

  • The snowman was constructed with white card stock. For the snowman on the easel card, the main die was cut two times.

  • Circle dies from a nesting die set were used to cut a small black circle to place under the snowman's head and a larger glittery aqua card stock to go under the snowman's body.

  • For the snowman on the easel card, the circles were adhered to both of the snowman.

  • For the easel cart, I wanted the front and the back of the snowman die cuts needed to be oriented the same way in order to position the hats correctly. Because of this, one of the die cuts would be adhered wrong side out. The snowman's hats were also die cut to accommodate for the snowman being oriented the same way. One piece of the glitter card stock was die cut normally and the other one was die cut on the opposite side of the paper. The hats were positioned on one snowman. The bodies of the two snowmen were adhered together to make it easier to align the two hats. The heads of the snowmen were then adhered together.

  • The snowman were finished up with bands of glitter paper on the hats and scarves were created. For the carrot nose on the snowman on the easel card, the die cut was trimmed down at the base of the carrot so it would not extend beyond the snowman's hat.


THE WOBBLER CARD

  • Oh panel white card stock measuring 4" x 5 1/4" was dry embossed with Holly Flourish Embossing Folder. It was mounted on sheet foam and adhered to a top folding, A2 sized cart base..

  • Let It Snowman A2 Cardfront comes with a banner die with two different sentiment that can be interchanged. The 'Snow Sweet' insert was centred in the banner die and held in place with some low tack tape. It was used to die cut white card stock. The Banner die alone was used to die cut blue glitter paper and white foam. The three die cuts are stacked and adhered on the bottom section of the card.

  • The snowman wasn't here to the centre of the cart using a wobbler.

  • This card was finished up with three aqua glitter snowflakes.


THE EASEL CARD

  • To accommodate the size of the frame in the easel format, the width of an A2 sized card base was increased to 4 1/2 inches and the height remained the same at 5 1/2 inches.

  • The card base was laid out flat and the frame die positioned on one side. When it was positioned on the die cutter plates, the bottom portion of the frame was 'overhanged' so it would not cut the card base. The result was about 2/3 of the circle portion of the frame cut from the card base. The card base was scored at 5 1/2" and 2 1/4".

  • Two white card stock and one blue glitter card stock frames were die cut and stacked.

  • One of the frames was used to trace the remainder of the circle on the card base and the negative space was trimmed off.

  • The stacked frames were aligned to the frame on the card base and adhered.

  • A panel of white card stock, 4 1/2" by 5 1/2", was embossed with Holly Flourish Embossing Folder. The panel was adhered to the inside of the card. A smaller panel, the same width of the card, was also embossed and adhered to the bottom of larger embossed panel.

  • Embroidery floss was used to attach the snowman with a sequin to the snowflake on the top of the frame.

  • The sequin was finished off with Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew.
