Christmas Cheer with Squares!

Hello Everyone and Happy Holidays!! Jenn here today sharing a simple yet elegant Christmas Card created with the amazing Tutti Designs Dies!
For this card I really wanted to showcase the elegance of the basic square shaped dies in an ornamental way. I used the 3 largest of the Dotted Nesting Square Dies.
Supplies used:
Kraft cardstock
Red cardstock
White cardstock
Adhesive foam squares
Xyron mega runner tape
Darice® Snowflake embossing folder
Christmas themed printed papers
Happy Holidays stamp Tim Holtz
Green ink pad
Clear embossing powder (coated over sentiment inside)

Die cuts and regular cuts needed:
For inside of card:
Cut a piece of the patterned paper to 4 3/4 X 4 3/4 for the first layer
Use the largest dotted nesting square to cut the red layer and the second largest to cut the white layer.
Add a stamped sentiment in green for a pop of color and a little cut out (gingerbread man). I like to coat inner sentiments with clear embossing powder and heat set for extra shine and to ensure no smudging happens when card is closed.

For the front of this card:
a total of 6 squares
1 red square cut to 3 3/4 as the first layer
Cut two of the largest dotted nesting squares from white
Cut one of the largest dotted nesting squares from red
Use the second largest dotted nesting square and cut one from red and one from a patterned (red & white snowflakes shown)
Finally cut one from the third largest dotted nesting square from white.
Emboss a pattern onto the large white and small white die cuts.
Layer as shown below and then attach to the card front using foam adhesive squares.

Add a cutout sentiment and a fun green bow for a pop of color!
