Good Morning! Hope today is a good day for you all! The card I have for you today is my first Christmas Card of 2014. I have been asked by one of my groups of ladies, if we can make some and, if they could be 15cm x 15cm please!! (I find this a little tricky as I am so very used to filling my 20cm x 20cm large cards with embellishments, so it’s a challenge for me to make smaller cards and use fewer adornments). Anyway everyone, here goes!!
So as I mentioned, this card is 15cm x 15cm. I folded the front of the base card back on itself to make an easel card, except this card is constructed on its side instead. The matting and layering is decreased in 5mm increments. The first layer of the “band” across the centre of the front and back of the card (blue) is 6.5cm x 14cm, the white layer is 6cm x 13.5cm and the pretty layer is 5.5cmx13.5cm. For the border I used an EK Success Deep Edger Punch, Snowflake and popped a gem in the centre of each one. The sentiment is by Creative Expressions, designed by Sue Wilson and reads “Let It Snow”. The snowflakes are Joycraft Winter Wishes Snowflake. I typed the sentiment and when printed out, I used Spellbinders Snowflakes View Die to cut it out. I then cut a further two of these in silver Mirri card and matted them underneath the white sentiment to give interest. The plain card is from Papermill, the pretty paper is by First Edition from the Silent Night Premium Paper Pad. The gems are from my own stash. Hope you like it ladies and gents!!! Let me know. I will be back again soon, I have another small Christmas Card which is almost finished! Hugs for now, Annie xx
