Hearts come home at Christmas, and for many people, home at Christmas includes SNOW!  Today’s card features Stampin’ Up! Embossing Paste being used as snow. This simple technique gives the card a little added texture, and the Palette Knives made it super easy.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Pool Party card stock (CS) cut to 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ (3 pieces)
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside

Stamped with the Hearts Come Home stamp set:

  • sentiment and trees in Pool Party ink onto the 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS

Die cut using the Hometown Greetings Edgelits:

  • the three 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ pieces of Whisper White CS with the three largest dies
  • then cut these pieces along the bottom edge so they would stagger as shown

Assembled the card:

  • smeared the Embossing Paste (sort of like icing a cake) with a Palette Knife onto the shortest die cut piece, but not on the buildings, and let it dry
  • tallest die cut glued to the front of the card base
  • middle die cut adhered onto the tallest die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals, lining up the layers along the bottom
  • shortest die cut adhered onto the middle die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals, lining up the layers along the bottom
  • NOTE: I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals under the buildings
  • 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS (with sentiment) glued to the inside of the card base
