This Cute and Cuddly stamp set Cocoa Holder can be considered a card or a 3-D project. I made this project smaller in both directions that the original, so that it would fit in a medium SU! envelope (Very Vanilla shown), but it was based upon this cute creation I found on SCS: http://kjskorner.blogspot.com/2009/08/cold-and-cuddly-meets-warm-and-yummy.html
I used the snowflakes from Branch Out with White Craft Paint, stamped Percy the Polar Bear in Versamark and heat-embossed with White embossing powder, and painted the ice with Stampin' Up!'s Frost White Shimmer paint from the Holiday mini catalog. The snowflake die cut is from the Merry Details embosslit.

I love these colors for baby girl cards, and I think this Hostess set (Love Bugs) makes such sweet baby cards!! (The Hello Baby sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.)

Next, score at 2-1/8 (flip & repeat on other side) so that the center panel is 4-1/4 wide and will fit in a medium SU! envelope. I trimmed about 1/16 inch off each side so that the gates met evenly, but you may not need to do that. You definitely don't want to trim first because that would affect your center panel size.
I just placed the cardstock on the top note die by eyesight. Of course the die is placed with the long side with the short side of the paper. I just made the top and bottom edges of the die even and the side scores the same distance from the edge at top and bottom. I didn't have a problem with sliding as it went through the Big Shot, so hopefully, you won't either.
Next, I inked the edge of the sentiment panel and the inside of the top note hole in the cardstock with Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. For the inside of the top note, I used the Versamarker with extra ink from the Versamark reinker.
I completed the sentiment panel by layering an embossed gold on Real Red on top of the vellum. I attached gold cord to the inside side edge of the top note hole with a mini glue dot and took it out the front and around to the back on each side. I used half of a mini glue dot under the cord at the edge where the Real Red gates meet to hold the cording neatly. Then, I tied it into a bow and added knots in each end of the cording.
Below are pictures of it with full/too bright flash and then with natural light and a candle in a jar glowing behind it.
