Holiday Blessings

Christmas is just round the corner. So today I'm going to sharing a non-traditional Christmas card with you. Threading Water and Snowflake punches were used on this card.

Using Bazzill Kraft Cardstock measure a piece that is 5 inches wide and 10 inches long. Fold in half. Take the Treading Water punch and start at the fold, punch both sides of the front of your card. Ink and distress all your card edges.

Grab about three scrap pieces of pattern paper that should be no smaller then 5 inches long. On this card I used Basic Grey's Eva Collection that can be found at Posh Designs Scrapbook Store.

Use the Treading Water punch and one piece of pattern paper measuring 1 3/4 inches wide by 5 inches long punch one edge. Adhere on the left side of your card. Take another scrap piece of pattern paper that measures out 1 3/4 inches wide by 5 inches long adhere right behind the hole punches left by the Treading Water punch.

Cut another piece of pattern paper that should measure about 5 inches long by 1 1/2 inches wide. Stamp your choice of sentiment to the rightside of this piece. I used white ink for this. Adhere by weaving under (yellow piece show in picture) and lining it up with the back of the card.

Using your snowflake punch, punch out three snowflake in a different pattern paper. Grab a ghost snowflake or even make your own adhere down. Using mini pink brads adhere you punched out snowflakes like shown in photo.

I hope you've enjoy this tuturial for making this card. Have fun crafting your next card.


Supplies used: Bazzill Kraft Cardstock, Fiskars Treading Water punch, Martha Steward Snowflake punch, Basic Grey~Eva Collection Papers, Heidi Swapp Ghost Snowflake, Paper Studio Mini Brads (pink), Hot Off the Press Christmas words, Stazon White Ink, Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink


  1. This is a great interpetation on pp that is not Christmas based. It is great to see non-traditional patterned papers mixed in with known elements (like snowflakes) to create a seasonal based card. The colors and design really finish off the whole design. TFS :)

  2. WOW this is just BEAUTIFUL, a fabulous interpretation of a non-traditional Christmas card!

  3. Great card, fantastic tip on how to get a scallop card without the expense.
