Snowflakes with Kraft & Gingham

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Friday edition of the Blog.

It's crunch time now to get your Christmas cards finished. But not to worry, because today I have for your viewing pleasure a quick and easy Christmas card idea. And, there is still time for you to order the dies and get them so you can make this card.

I am using the Snowflakes Set and the Season's Greetings w/Snowflakes dies. So let's get started with some details on the CAS card.

Step 1: I love the look of both kraft and white cardstocks together for Christmas cards.  It just has that country look to it especially when paired with red gingham ribbon.

White Card base: 4 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Kraft Panel: 4 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Step 2: Cut the snowflakes and the Season's Greeting phrase from white card stock. I also cut another seasons' greetings in gold as an afterthought. I did a slight offset just for added interest. This is something you could leave off the card as well.
I attached them to the card base with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I like this adhesive because it dries clear.
Once I positioned the snowflakes I added my red gingham ribbon. I decided to add a bow to give this a more finished look. But you could leave that off also if you like. Then I thought some gold sequins would also be a nice touch.

Step 3: Attached the image panel to the white card base to complete my card. I hope I have given you an idea for a Christmas card. If you need these dies they are available now in the online store.

I will be back tomorrow with another idea for a Christmas card for you. See you then!!!

Oh, Mary, you chose one of my favorite color combinations -- I love kraft and red together. Your card was quick and super cute!

Mary, This design shows how simple steps can lead to a very elegant card that gives the impression of being more complex than it is. I really like it.
