Hi blogging friends
I can't believe how quickly Christmas is approaching - time seems to speed up at this time of year!
Today I am sharing a clean and simple Christmas card just using dies and an embossing folder. This is also my entry for the following Challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes with the optional extra theme of make a decoration or gift for Christmas (which I obviously didn't do), and
Splitcoaststampers - Clean and Simple Challenge CAS301 of add a tree(s) to your card.
The Deer Snowflake scene is a gorgeous die by Cottage Cutz which I purchased at a Craft Show in August. Isn't it a beautiful?
The dot embossing is a retired Cuttlebug folder - Kars snowflakes which is very difficult to find but there are two embossing folders that you can substitute:-
Taylored Expressions (new release) Snowfall TEEF09. The dots are larger on this folder compared to the Kars Snowflake folder. Taylored Expressions embossing folders plus their stamps/dies are now available in Australia from various retailers - just do a search online.

The aqua glitter cardstock was diecut using a My Favorite Things Joy Photo Card Frame die. I attached the scene to my white cardstock base and trimmed the edges to 1/16" using my Perfect Layers Tools - apart from the LHS of the card which is where the card fold is.
The smallest aqua glitter cardstock snowflake on the scene is from the Poppystamps Christmas Baubles die set (which includes 2 snowflakes - I used the smallest snowflake from the set) and the largest snowflake is from the My Favorite Things Snowflakes Trio set (I used the smallest snowflake in the set). I added aqua rhinestones to the snowflake centres.
The card is very flat and will be going overseas to one of my cardmaking buddies.
Thanks for stopping by!
