Happy Holidays

Hello friends!  Happy New Year!  I don't know about you but I'm sure glad to kick 2020 to the side of the road and move on to what I hope will be a better year.  While the holidays are over, I have still managed to make a few more cards that will pad my stash for next Christmas, using the current Simon Says Stamp card kit.  

The card I'm sharing with you today was made using the terrific sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. 

And here's what I came up with...

The designer paper is one of several beautiful designs included in the card kit.  Primarily for math purposes, I chose to make a 4.75" square card, which helped me determine the sizes of the panels. The designer paper was matted on slightly larger panels of white and added to the lavender card base with foam tape.

Next, the snowflake was die cut from white glitter paper and mounted onto a circle of vellum matted with the same lavender paper.  Thin foam squares were used to add it to the card and finally the sentiment strip was adhered to the middle of the snowflake with foam tape.  A few jewels were adhered to the front to add a bit more sparkle.  A really quick and easy card to put together.

Thanks so much for visiting, I really appreciate it!  I hope you remain safe and healthy, and have a wonderful weekend!

Very pretty card! Double matting the background papers was a good choice. Thank you for sharing with AHSC.
