Warm Winter Wishes   Thursday, November 15, 2012
by Beate Johns   Post Type: Card

M-Bossabilities Folders are so much fun. I love how embossing your cardstock adds so much to your finished card. I have another easy and fast Winter card to share with you. It could be easily mass produced and is pretty flat for mailing.

Spellbinders™ Paper Arts Supplies:

Preferred Promotional Partners: 
Cross Promotional Partners:


Others:   Stamps, ink, corner rounder, sewing machine, white and Kraft cardstock


When embossing with regular sized M-Bossabilities and cutting and embossing just a few dies, I LOVE to use my  Junior Replacement Plates. Because they are smaller then the full sized plates, you can run them through your Grand Calibur faster!

Emboss a 3" x 5 1/2" piece of white cardstock with Holiday Magic M-Bossabilities folder.  Cut and emboss white cardstock with several Standard Circle dies as well as the largest of the banner dies from Nested Pennants. Stamp your circles with snowflakes, the banner with sentiments.  The colors for the snowflakes were chosen by the colors in the patterned paper pack I used.

Cut and emboss more white cardstock with of the small dies from Create A Flake Four. The smaller snowflake piece was adhered to the bigger one with a Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L - Foam Adhesive Square. A rhinestone from Want2Scrap -Sleek Strip Silver Rhinestones tops off the snowflake

A 5 1/2"  long strip of Basic Grey - Aspen Frost patterned paper was adhered to the embossed layer to create a 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece. The edge was stitched, the sentiment was adhered to the lower third of the card front and the stamped and layered snowflakes were adhered to it. The card front was adhered to the card base, a 3 1/2" x 11" piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half.

Here is a close up look at the gorgeous deep embossing you get from an M-Bossabilities folder. I used a corner rounder to round the upper left and lower right corners of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope this inspires you to create with your dies today! Have a wonderful day. 


Hugs and smiles

  • Kim Petroske Thursday, November 15, 2012

    Love the card. What I found most interesting was how you stamped your saying on the 'whole' tag space, even into the embossed areas.  I always struggle sometimes with getting what I want to fit in the raised area.  I actually really like the way you did it.  I will definitely be giving it a try now.  Thanks for the inspiration!!!!    
  • Carol Vivenzio Thursday, November 15, 2012
