Today's card is based on the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #275. I'm also going to use it in my class this weekend. I'm not usually a non-traditional card maker for Christmas but one of the ladies asked if we could do a winter card. I did add a sentiment on the card but they have the option of leaving it off.
I started with Coastal Cabana card stock for the base. Instead of making the separate flags, I added five strips of the Winter Frost designer paper to a scrap piece of paper and cut the bottom edge with the Big Shot and one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits. It was then matted with a piece of Silver Foil and attached to a piece of Smoky Slate Textured card stock. Two pieces of Silver Ribbon were then criss-crossed across the top. The sentiment from the Christmas Messages stamp set was stamped near the bottom with Smoky Slate ink and the whole layer added to the card. Two snowflakes were cut from the Silver Foil using the retired Northern Frost Strip Die and attached together with a Silver Glimmer Brad. I used Glue Dots to add it to the card. For the finishing touch I curled the edges of each flake to give it some dimension. Thanks for your visit. I hope it's warmer where you are; feels like winter is coming early here in the Northeast.
