In celebration of the Winter Olympics (and because I used all of my Christmas cards this past year and will need to start NOW in order to have enough for this coming Christmas) I couldn’t resist making this snowy card.


Besides a snowman image, I also used a couple of snowflake punches, a snowflake die cut and a snowflake embossing folder.  Yeah.. someone got a little carried away, but it sure was fun!  Copics were used for the little bit of coloring that was done.

And if all that wasn’t enough, I used the embossing folder to add some embossed snowflakes to the flap of the envelope.  (Since the envelope flap has to be put sideways into the embossing folder, not all embossing folder designs work well for this.. such as those with words/script.)


Different shapes of envelope flaps will work fine, too.


You can create either a positive or negative embossing. On the negative embossed envelope below, I ran a blue ink pad across the flap to create another look.


It’s such a quick and easy way to add a little something extra to your card giving.  And your mail carrier can enjoy it, too!


Happy Crafting!
