christmas snowflake

I really like this card but it did take a long time to make.

A 2”, 1 1/2” and 1” strip was cut from Doodlebug Bazill cardstock ‘Bubble Blue’, ‘Blue Bell’ and ‘Blue Jean’ respectively. These were overlapped slightly and stuck together to form a card front 4” wide and this was cut to a height of 5 1/2”.

A 1 1/2” wide ribbon with a blue gradient colour (purchased from ‘Marks and Spencer’ was wrapped around this card and attached with the darker colour towards the top about 1” from the top of the card.

Six sections of the Quickutz snowflake die (RS0386) were cut using ‘Lily White’ Bazill  card and were attached together using a small white brad, which was used to attache the assembly to the card towards the right hand side near the bottom of the ribbon.

The letters for ‘Merry Christmas’ were cut again out of ‘Lily White’ Bazill using the retired ‘Snow Angel’ alphabet again from Quickutz. This was stuck in the lower left hand corner.

The whole section was then placed on top of a card measuring 4” by 5 1/2”.
