Chilly and Freezy Slimline Card and Give Away

Hey card making friends, welcome back.  I have a snowy birthday card to share with you today.  Yes, that’s a thing up here in the frozen North, haha, we also have snowy Valentine’s cards, haha, which this could also be.

It’s the Chilly and Freezy Slimline Card and Give Away I promised a few weeks ago.  My other order has arrived and there was a second Chilly and Freezy Die set in it, so I’m going to do a GIVE AWAY for the second set.

PS – the Chilly and Freezy Die set was a promotion between Tim Holtz and Simon Says Stamp back in November.  The die set is no longer available to purchase.

How to make the Chilly and Freezy Slimline Card:

Start by cutting a piece of watercolor card stock 3″ x 8″, secure to a protected work surface and spritz with the Tim Holtz Distress Mica Stains in Shiny Bauble and Merry Mint.

PRO-TIP – This is a super fast and easy way to create a beautiful watercolor looking background for your cards without a bunch of fuss.  It’s also great fun to experiment with different color combos.

NOTE – SIMON SAYS STAMP now sells Mica Stains Individually, and In Sets. (I have linked them below).

Next, Place the new Simon Says Stamp Four Flakes Stencil from the Kisses release over the dry panel and blend Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink through the stencil randomly across the piece.

Then, clean the stencil, and use Snowdrop White Paper Glaze to stencil random white snowflakes over the piece.

Set aside to dry.

Adding the Art Elements:

Start by Die cutting the Happy Birthday in black with a vellum background.

Then, create a snowman with the Chilly and Freezy Die Set.  Also cut out 3 pink hearts.

Finally, create the card:

  • Card base:  White Hammermill 7″ x 8-1/2″, score and fold at 3-1/2″.
  • Black Mat:  3-1/8 x 8-1/8

Use the fine tip on the  Bearly art glue to glue the sentiment on the left portion of the card and Foam squares  to attach the snowman to the right.

Finally, embellish with the three hearts.

PRO-TIP – On the piece below the card, I used Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel instead of Paper Glaze for a much softer, Glimmer snowflake background

  1. Wonderful design! Thank you so much for sharing all of the steps and details so thoroughly!!! It’s so helpful!
    Thanks for the chance to win this cute die set! I placed an order that I thought qualified to receive this, but sadly I think they had run out by then.

  2. I love anything including snowmen. I look at your posts quite often. You are so talented and I want to learn new techniques. Do you mind if I use your card for inspiration. Stay warm and blessed. I live in Alabama but I was married to a Canadian and got the chance to visit Canada twice.

    1. Hi Bonita, thank you for your kind words and yes you are always welcome to case my cards, that’s why I share the measurements and products used, to make it easy for you to do that

      Hola, Bonita! My family is from Mexico and years back when I was a tween, we were coming back from Mexico City. We met an American couple who named their little girl Bonita because they liked the word. You are my second Bonita. 😀 Stay warm! Hugs from San Antonio, Texas

  3. loved every card you made, I did the blog and shared on my facebook page and followered you on instagram, already get your daily emails thanks sooo much for sharing all your goodies!!!

  4. Love the colors and textures on your awesome card! The snowman is just the sweetest! So nice of you to give your extra set away…. thanks for the opportunity! I sure regret missing out on getting the set while it was available.

  5. Great card. I like both the Paper Glaze and Glitter Gel versions of snowflakes. Might be fun to try layering the latter over the former.

  6. This card is so, so gorgeous Sandi. It has some colorful mixed media background and some “cuteness” with Chilly (or Freezy? 😉 ). Thank you for all the inspiration you give us and the opportunity to win this die set. <3

  7. I tried to shop & earn this die set when it was featured. Sadly they’d run out, so thank you for creating this giveaway! I love how the snowman looks like he’s tossing hearts like snowballs to celebrate! Beautiful winter background to set it off.

  8. Oh Sandi, I just love your cards!!! The previous Chilly & Freezy cards were my most favorite cards of all time! I saved those photos with the hopes to recreate them!!! Unfortunately, I missed out on this set but thought I could probably make them with other Snowmen Stamps and Dies….not as cute by far!!! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win this set! I’m keeping my fingers crossed!! Thanks for all your creative content…I joined the Spellbinders large die of the month club from your cute cards in January!!! I love seeing your creations!!!

  9. Such a lovely wintery card, I like those colors from the Mica stains and love Chilly and Freezy indeed. Thanks for the opportunity to get those beautiful and fun dies.
