This is my card for the Christmas Fan Club November Challenge SCSCCNOV13 of Window In/Out where you need create a window scene at Christmas time whether looking outside through your window or looking inside at a Christmassy scene. Now I live in Australia and it is summer so we don't have snow (I WISH!) when I look out my window but I have many friends/relatives in the UK, USA and Canada who I send cards to and I always have snowy scenes because they all tell me they have more snow than I could even begin to imagine LOL! If you are a Fan Club Member, you can find the details on the challenge here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...~-t580310.html
I diecut the My Favorite Things Die-namics Photo Card Frame out of red glitter cardstock then attached the diecut elements to that before attaching the finished frame to my card front. I used my Memory Box Deer Trio die for the main part of the scene. None of the layers are up on dimensionals - they are just layered together with doublesided tape. Even though the MB Deer Trio diecut looks like it is up on dimensionals, it just merely the dry embossing that it is on top of that bumps it up a little to look that way. The top RHS snowflake is by Simon Says Stamp - Kate's Snowflake and the bottom LHS snowflake is the smallest die from the My Favorite Things Die-namics Snowflake Trio die set. I glued down just the snowflake centres and bent the tips up a little to add a little dimension to them and added a red Kaisercraft rhinestone to the centre.
I ran my white cardstock card front through my Big Shot using the (retired) Cuttlebug Kars Snowflake embossing folder. If you do not have this folder - plus it is virtually impossible to find online - I have a suggestion for an alternative if you check out my blog post at the link below.
Once I had embossed my card front, I attached the scene/frame then just trimmed up the edges of the white cardstock base so that I had a thin border around the red frame although the angle of the photo makes it look a little uneven: trust me, it is even in real life! My white card bases are bigger than a CB embossing folder which means I can just have the dry embossing within the scene and not spill over onto the card edges.
