A Christmas card that uses up some of my leftover Snowflake Wishes


Well, here's the latest in my series of cards using up leftovers - my desk is looking clearer all the time!

The vanilla and black snowflakes were sitting on my desk - so I simply glued them together.  Then I saw the little piece of Gold Foil Sheet so I cut a snowflake from the centre (there's bound to be a card coming up soon that features a gold snowflake!). I adhered the gold rectangle (it's almost but not quite square) to a leftover piece of black cardstock that just needed a tiny bit of trimming.  Then I glued the vanilla snowflake into position.

TIP:  I used adhesive tape to adhere the gold rectangle as I find that wet glues show up on the front of  the metallic card.

HINT: If I were to do this again - I would hide the edges of the gold foil by using a die to cut suitable aperture in the black card and positioning the gold behind it, to form a sort of frame effect with the black.

I stamped the greeting onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and cut it out with one of the Ornate Frames dies.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
