How to make a Warm & Cozy Snowflake Christmas Card 

using the Sweater Embossing Folder* from Sizzix* and Eileen Hull.

I have a “thing” for cable-knit sweaters. (just ask my family)

So it comes as no surprise how much I love this new embossing folder.

It’s perfect for creating quick and easy cards.

Warm & Cozy Embossed Sweater Card

Directions:

  • To create the embossed sweater layer, place a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of cream cardstock into the Sweater Embossing Folder*.  Place the embossing folder onto the Sizzix Big Shot* platform.   Crank the handle of the Big Shot* to run the embossing folder through the machine.
  • Adhere the embossed layer onto the blueberry cardstock layer. Adhere those layers onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ cream cardstock base.
  • Add adhesive to the back of the wood snowflake and adhere to the front of the card. Add the adhesive pearl to the center of the snowflake.
  • Tie a small bow and glue it onto the top of the snowflake.
  • Using a computer generated font, print the words “warm & cozy” onto a piece of cream cardstock.  Cut the cardstock into a strip with a v notch on each end. Place thin foam mounting squares under the cardstock strip and add to the front of the card under the wood snowflake.

FYI…This is a thick card.  You will need extra postage to mail it.  (It might be best to hand deliver.)

Holiday Joy Gift Card Money Holder

Directions:

  • The tri-fold card was made from a 5 ½” x 9 ¾” piece of Kraft Cardstock. I scored the cardstock on the 3 ¼” and 6 ½” mark.
  • Adhere the green plaid layer to the gold cardstock layer. Adhere onto the front of the tri-fold card.
  • Assemble and adhere the die-cut pieces of the coffee cup onto the front of the card. The red plaid pieces and vellum coffee lid have been made into stickers using a Xyron Creative Station.  The “coffee sleeve” was embossed using the sweater embossing folder.
  • Remove the backing off the gridded transfer paper. Apply the transfer paper over the word “Holiday”.  Gently rub over the transfer paper to make sure the word has transferred.  Apply onto the top of the card.
  • Add clear adhesive enamel dots to the lid of the coffee cup.
  • The transfer paper is reusable. Use the transfer paper to apply the small snowflake onto the cup.
  • On the inside of the card… Open the trifold card. Adhere the thin red plaid adhesive strip to the top of the cream cardstock layer.  (Leave a 1/8” margin on the top) Trim the excess paper strip.  Using the transfer paper, transfer the word “Enjoy” under the red strip.
  • On the third-panel measure and mark 1 ½” on the outside edge of the panel. On the inside fold of the third panel, measure and mark 2 ½”.  Draw a line from the 2 ½” mark to the 1 ½” mark.  Cut along the line and the inside fold to create a diagonal pocket flap.  Adhere the thin green strip to the top of the diagonal panel and trim excess.
  • Punch a small hole in the center of the green panel and attach the small cream tag with twine. Apply the small red plaid heart to the center of the tag.
  • Add adhesive to the bottom and side of the flap. Adhere flap to the center panel.
