12 Weeks of Christmas - Week 3

I'm back with another Christmas card idea this week... I saw this embossed frame idea on Patty Bennett's blog. She used a wood frame from a craft store, but I used chipboard and my Top Note Die to make my own frame. If you'd like to receive another Christmas idea tomorrow, be sure to sign up for my Newsletter (link in sidebar, or e-mail me with "12 Weeks of Christmas" in the subject line).

1. Cut Top Note out of the piece of chipboard. We just need the frame for this card, so you can use the chipboard Top Note for another project.
2. Place Naturals White cardstock inside the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder.
3. Run the folder through the Big Shot using the following 'sandwich': Multi Purpose platform on tab 2 ~ Embossing folder with paper inside ~ chipboard frame (centred over paper in embossing folder) ~ Cutting Plate.
4. Use the Ruby Red inkpad to rub lightly over the embossed areas, picking up the petal images.
5. Stamp the image and sentiment from Scenic Season with Old Olive ink in the middle of the card front (inside the frame). Use the Stamp-a-ma-Jig for accurate placement.
6. Use the 2-Way Glue Pen to draw some lines (I did the snowbanks, and a few branches). Sprinkle Dazzling Diamonds glitter over card front and shake off excess.
7. Adhere the stamped and embossed card front to the Old Olive card base.

Nice job on the card. I didn't think I would care very much for that stamp set, but now that I see so many beautiful cards, it makes me want it! I like the embossed folder/top note combo.

Really like this, I have had this set on my list for a while but it keeps getting bumped. Love what you did with the embossing folder.
