Beautiful Winter Wishes Card

Hey, Crafty Friends! I'm back with Team Eileen and today I'll show you how to create this simple and elegant slimline card.

The summer heat is barely dying down but I'm looking forward to cooler weather already. It's still getting into the late 90s here and I would really love it if mother nature blew a few flurries my way! There's just something about snow that is so beautiful and serene. I think that there is something lulling about the way it blankets everything after heavy snowfall. 

So, today, I'll be using Eileen Hull's Wreath & Snowflake die to create this flurry-laced card.

Supplies Used
Eileen Hull Wreath & Snowflake (Sizzix)
Mega Runner (Xyron)
White Cardstock
Red Cardstock
Gold  Glitter Cardstock
Gold Foil Stickers (

I started by running a sheet of white cardstock through my Xyron Creative Station. 

Then, I used the Snowflake die from the Wreath & Snowflake die set to die cut about 7 or 8 snowflakes.

I cut a piece of red cardstock down to measure 
3-1/2" × 8.-1/2" and adhered my snowflakes onto the front. 

I spread the snowflakes out along the card front until I was happy with the way it looked. Then, I trimmed off any overhanging pieces.

I used the star included in the Wreath & Snowflake set to die cut 6 stars from gold cardstock. Then adhere them in between the snowflakes.

Using my Xyron Mega Runner, I mounted my card front onto a 3-5/8"x 8-5/8" piece of gold cardstock. Then attached it to a white 9" x 4" slimline card base.

I cut a 1-1/2" strip of vellum and laid it across my card at a diagonal and attached the sides around the back so the adhesive was not visible. Then I used gold foil stickers to spell out the word WINTER across the vellum. Lastly, I word from Tim Holtz's Big Chat sticker stack to complete my card sentiment.

And here is my finished card...

I love how this card turned out!

Even though there were a few steps, it came together pretty quickly.

I hope you enjoyed my card for today! 
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Until next time...
