Just one Snowflake!

Hi there crafty friends,

Yesterday when admiring my dear cousin Lynn latest gorgeous card, she mentioned she had finished her Christmas cards! Goodness, I thought, I have loads to make and need to get moving-thanks for the push Lynn.

Luckily I had just got CAS-ual Fridays new Joy set and wanted to play with it. I got this set as I love the big sentiments and thought they would be great to make duplicate sets.

This is what I created:

I saw the Merry Monday photo on Lynn's blog and used this as my main inspiration using the rustic feel of the photo and the colours.

I used enamel dots rather than the extra snowflakes I was going to use as the 'use one snowflake' challenge at City Crafter caught my eye. I think this is quite a unique idea for a challenge. The longest part of this card was deciding where to put these enamel dots. I played around for ages until I found a position for them that pleased my eye!

I only made one more of these using traditional Christmas green instead of red but I like this design and am going to make a few more using non traditional colours (I hope!!)

Have a good day x



  1. The red big text looks so great on the kraft! And I really like the distressed panel! Hugs, Gerrina
