Recently I participated in a Christmas Card swap, since someone has already posted it on a group site, I figured it was ok to add it here now. I had so many different designs and had a hard time trying to decide what to do.
This card started out as so much more, but it just was too much. It had rhinestones, and glitter and a bg stamp and it just overwhelmed the big shot die cuts which was what I was trying to show off. So I dialed it back a little, well a lot and it turned out very simple but I loved it.
I just used a top fold card base and put it on the top note die, just below the top perforation line in the die to make a card out of it. The sentiment is from the new hostess set Punches Three, but instead of using the square scallop punch I just cut the middle out. It is embossed with winter white embossing powder. The snowflakes are on shimmery white cardstock but it doesnt show in the picture.
I loved this card but almost felt like it was too simple and since the swap was a small scale one I added in a second card. I just made up some more of my red mitten 3x3 cards to tuck inside as well.
