I made three cards using this weeks sketch at the Freshly Made Sketch Blog; two identical Christmas cards and one flowery card. I will share the flowery one another day, today's share are the Christmas ones.
The ground under the trees was lightly sponged with blue ink and the die cut was spritzed with Glimmer Mist for a bit of shine.
The snowflake paper is from Hallmark and a sheet I've had for years and years. I still can't believe I cut into it for a couple of strips. Go me! Stampin' Up's 'Not Quite Navy' card stock was a perfect match.
Rather than use a scalloped border, I used a glittery card stock strip - then punched a snowflake out of the same piece to tuck under the label.
A square punch helped notch the corners of the white and snowflake banner pieces - and it hangs over the edge just enough to be a feature yet still fit into the envelope. The card itself is 5 x 6.5", not an A2 card.
My 'large card' Christmas stash is slowly growing!
Thanks for stopping by today!
