Snowflake Christmas Cards: My August Cards….a little late

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
