My turn on the Quietfire Digital Blog today and Suzanne has asked us to do some Xmas stuff... first one this year... 

The OTF fonts Suzanne is coming out with work great in emails, Word, Excel etc. I used it in my SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) 

ID: MC July/18 - Split Center Easel Snowflake - Country Plank - May Your Heart card
size: 7"w x 5"H

Created: July 6, 2018

I'm using a quote stamp on the floor from Quietfire Design 

("May Your Heart..."); 

These are the electronic cut files I'm using from Suzanne available on Silhouette. Click image to purchase.


and the paper available from Suzanne on Quietfire Design


Printed the snowflake paper both on 110# white cardstock and a no brand calligraphy practice paper I love that is a bit thicker than normal printer paper.

Opened SCAL software, activated the font key and typed the words "Merry Christmas". Removed everything except the snowflake and resized it to 2.5" and cut from the printed cardstock. The printed a shadow layer of the snowflake from the deep blue cardstock and adhered both together.

Scored and folded my card structure (see diagram at bottom). Cut deep blue cardstock to 7"w x 10"h. Score along the 10" side to create a top fold 5". Cut the side panels 1"w by 5"long (to the center score line...). Now score the the center piece that is 5"w x 5"h in half, scoring at the 2.5"h. Cut a piece of snowflake cardstock 4.75"w x 4.75"h and adhere to the bottom scored section. (see pics at bottom of page, you'll see the snowflake cardstock is only adhered to the lower section of the fold)

Adhered the snowflake to the left edge. Hit the edges of each letter with a sponge and Distress "Faded Jeans", then adhered them to the card. Added a snowflake rhinestone. 

On the floor: 

Cut strips of the snowflake paper to cover the side panels and the floor (2pieces - .75" x 4.75" and  1piece 4.75"w x 4.75"h), adhered to appropriate sections. Adhered the right panel to the floor.

Adhered only the outside edge and front edge of the left panel to the floor creating a pocket for the gift card.

Used my stamping Platform to stamp the quote using Versafine "Majestic Blue" and clear embossing. Used a Liquid Pearls "White Opal" and applied dots on the berry sprig.

adhered 3 white snowflake buttons using hot glue to act as my stopper.

Adhered a small blue ribbon bow with hot glue.
