This past September I attended a crafting weekend event with some crafter friends called Scissors And The City. This was my first non-Stampin’ Up! event (although there was a lot of Stampin’ Up! there). Most of the crafters were making scrapbook pages as the big appeal of the weekend was that you set up your space Friday morning and you could leave it all out until you left on Sunday afternoon. You could spend focused time on projects with the convenience of crafting with your friends. Saturday was World Card Making Day so we also made time for the virtual Stampin’ Up! event.
It was a fabulous weekend and I made a fun Christmas Yeti card as my Swap with the snowflake frame from the Snowman dies. I did use the now retired Yeti dies but if you didn’t grab these while they were available you can fussy cut out the yeti and create a scarf with the Snowman Magic stamp set (like I did for a hippo card here).
Start with a Petal Pink cardstock card base. Cut a Basic White cardstock panel and a Pool Party cardstock panel. Dry emboss the Basic White cardstock panel with the snowy hills Charming Landscapes embossing folder and then glue it to the center of the card base. Die cut a snowflake frame from the Pool Party cardstock panel with the Snowman Dies. Use Foam adhesive strips to add the snowflake frame to the card front completely covering the embossed Basic White cardstock panel.
Stamp the yeti from the Yeti To Party stamp set in Memento Black ink on Basic White cardstock. Color the yeti with Stampin’ Blends and add Wink of Stella to the yeti’s cheeks. Create a Basic White cardstock scarf by either die cutting one with the Yeti dies or by stamping two scarves with the Snowman Magic stamp set and fussing cutting them out (here). Glue the scarf around the yeti’s neck. Use Glue dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the yeti to the card front overlapping the frame.
Stamp the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Memento Black ink on Basic White cardstock. Fussy cut out the sentiment and add Pool Party ink on the edges with a Stampin’ Blend. Use glue dots to add it to the card front on the embossed Basic White cardstock panel. Use glue dots to attach some of the snowflakes around the frame to the embossed Basic White cardstock panel to make sure they don’t snag. Add Adhesive- backed Stars to the card front on the embossed Basic White cardstock panel.
Add a Basic White cardstock inside panel to write your message. Cut Basic White cardstock strips, stamp the snowflakes from the Yeti To Party stamp set in Pool Party ink and Petal Pink ink on the strips, and use glue to add the stamped strips to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
Stamp the sentiment from the Yeti To Party stamp set in Memento Black ink at the bottom of the inside panel and back of the card.
I hope you enjoyed my Hello Yeti To Party Christmas card. You can order the Yeti to Party stamp set, the Go To Greetings stamp set, the Charming Landscapes embossing folders, and the Snowmen dies (Snowman Magic Bundle) in my Online Store.
