Welcome back to Day 11 of my 12 Days of Christmas Cards. Today's card is a 5x7 card. I decided I wanted to use this chipboard snowflake from Basic Grey but it was too big to fit my usual sized cards. Sometimes I do make cards work for the elements I want to use instead of the other way around.
I started with an 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardstock and trimmed it to 7 x 10. I then scored it and folded it so that it was 7 x 5 and used that as my card base. I took a piece of patterned paper and trimmed it to 6.75 x 4.75 and adhered it to my card base. Next I decided the placement of my large snowflake so that I could determine where my twine and sentiment would go. I did not stick it down at this point, I just marked it with a pencil. Using Versa Mark ink, I stamped my sentiment and then covered it with White Embossing Powder. I heated it until the powder melted and then set it aside to cool. After it had cooled, I added my baker's twine and did my faux stitching. Now that everything was in place, I stuck down my chipboard snowflake to finish off the card. Yes this card is very simple but I find it dramatic with that large snowflake.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this card. Be sure to come back tomorrow for the final card in this series.
