Due to all the traveling I've done the past month I am about a month behind in my Christmas Card Challenge. As most of you already know, I play the Christmas Card Challenge on Splitcoaststampers where we make Christmas Cards all year long so that were not stressed out during the busy holiday season. I make five cards a month so that I'll have over fifty cards at the end of the year. These are my August cards.
I make a tall card 4 x 8 so I can fit a Christmas Photo Card and Letter inside. I was inspired by this card HERE, because it was so clean and simple…which is exactly what I needed to play catch-up! I altered the design by using making it a tall card instead of an A2. I also used different stamp sets, and solid color paper instead of designer paper. I also left some of her details out: like the stitching and double dimension. Not that I didn't love that, I did, but I'm going for quick and easy this month!
I used two different retired Stampin' Up! Sets to make my cards: "Lace Snowflakes" and "Xmas Words: Star Studded Season".
I randomly stamped the snowflake on a white card base using Baja Breeze Ink, then adhered it to a Pool Party card base.
The sentiment tag was cut with a Spellbinder Nestability Die. I used silver ribbon instead of silver string because I thought it was prettier.
A clear crystal was put in the center of each snowflake, and silver sequins were scattered about the card.
The sentiment tag was popped up on dimensionals.
Have a great day! Amy
