Simply Snowflakes

Hello friends

So if I was very very organised and had an eight day week this
is the Christmas card that I would be making for everyone this year.
It is my perfect recipe for simple, elegant and batch making.

It features the gorgeous Create A Flake Six and 6 x 6 Matting Basics.

Create your card base with the Matting Basics and attach a square of 
patterned festive paper - raid your scrap box for this.
Next, onto your cutting plate place white card, matching size Matting Basics 
die and largest snowflake inside.  Cut to create your aperture.
Attach to card front with 3D Foam Squares.
Using the the largest snowflake die cut offset and attach and 
apply the smallest snowflake to the middle.

You may be able to see from the photo that I've embossed just the flap of
the envelope - again something I like to do for that special touch.
I used Santa's Sleigh embossing folder - that boy of mine has it
so cheap on the website!

Every year I am thrilled to see the next Create A Flake die 
but I'm truly taken with this year's design.
I think it is because that smallest snowflake can easily be a 
flower too....

Create A Flake Six is available on the website here.

Take care friends - I hope you're keeping warm!

  4. Two great cards, live the fact the small snowflake looks like a flower.


  5. Both gorgeous cards Christine. The second one was admired by a few of us at your demo on Saturday.
    The idea is great and could be easily adapted using other dies. Thank you for the inspiration!
