Cut and Fold Greetings

This card was made using a couple of die sets from Spellbinders and a purchased focal and Dazzles from HOTP.

The purchased focal was enhanced by rounding the corners, adding a couple of 3-D Dazzles snowflakes, and inking around the edge. 

The frame was made by cutting one of the Marvelous Squares dies from a larger square, and then setting the die cut itself aside and using the outside as a frame.  Once again, I used a corner rounder on the corners and enhanced it with Dazzles snowflakes.

The lower border was created with Spellbinder's Octagon Strips and Accents. I love the 3-d effect created by folding the cut pieces back.  As you can see, I added a few more snowflakes - one at the center of the octagon strip, and three more on the narrow ribbon that runs between it and the frame.  With tools like these, you can create a stunning card pretty quickly! That's a good thing, because it's getting awfully close to Christmas!
