So today I decided I had to make some time to design my 2016 Christmas card, at one time Hannah and I made all our cards every year in the October school holiday, but Ive been so busy this year that just didn’t happen.

I am cheating a little this year and only sending a handmade card to my closest family, friends and neighbours with have to have a shop bought one.

So I wanted something simple and I saw this idea on Pinterest, the snowflake is an design in the holiday section of the SNC machine, I reduced its size to 1.25 inches in height.

The white base card is Stampin Up Thick whisper white which I cut in half lengthwise using my dreamkuts machine, love that for precision cutting.

The white mating layer is again SU thick whisper white cut at 5.5/8 x 3.7/8.

Ive rounded the bottom corners of the base card and the mat layer.

The greeting is from SU Lots of joy and stamped in Memento black ink and Ive added pearls to the centres of each snowflake.

I think its turned out ok, what do you think.
