Day Four of the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party

Welcome to Day 4 of the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party!  Each day, we've been sharing sneak peeks of projects made with the FIVE new stamp sets and THREE new sets of metal dies.  On Saturday, Kimberly will make the full reveal - AND there will be a blog hop with prizes at EACH stop along the way too! 

Today, we're sharing projects created with the NEW Joy Filled Christmas stamp set and NEW Snowflake Border metal dies.  I LOVE the way my cards turned out.  Plus, they were so quick and easy to put together!


I began by cutting cardstock at 5.5 x 8.5.  I scored the card in half at 4.25.  Using VersaMark, I used a variety of pretty snowflake stamps from the NEW Ornate Labels - Christmas stamp set to create a patterned paper look on my card base.


On the front side edge of the card, I then used the NEW Snowflake Border metal dies set to cut off a border.  I used the same metal die to cut the border from white cardstock and then "puzzle pieced" the border to my card. 


At the back of my card, I added a little strip of matching cardstock in order to have something to which I could adhere the border.  You can see where I used a punch to add two little holes to continue the window effect of the snowflake.


To add the sentiment, I used Spellbinders dies to cut labels - one in Cherry Cobbler red for a lovely splash of colour and the top one in white.  I used Cherry Cobbler ink to stamp a sentiment using the NEW Joy Filled Christmas stamp set.  The gorgeous holly flourish is from the same set.  I then finished everything off with a snowflake cut from the NEW Snowflake Border metal dies and added a pretty gem to the middle of each one.

Please head over to My Craft Spot to see the delightful creations made by the rest of the design team.  While you're there, be sure to leave a comment for Kimberly for your chance to win today's fabulous prize: a 'Tis the Season stamp set!

I love the lacy look of the snowflake border, and inlaying the die was a brilliant idea. It's a great card, Kate.
