A Blue Christmas
Blue has always been one of my favorite colors. These cards have a plain white card base with a muted patterned blue paper attached to the front. So many beautiful papers are just not heavy enough to be a card base. AND even if they are heavy enough you get more cards out of cutting them to A2 size (4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches) and attaching it to a much less expensive plain white card base.
The large snowflakes are from a Spellbinders die and the small snowflakes are from Cheery Lynn Designs.
You will note that two of the cards have some distressing on the white Label die cut. These were done with the paper still in the die cut. This allows one to leave that very attractive light border around the outer edge.
I really did have a lot of fun playing with the various snowflakes. I loved the blue ones and the white ones.
Now I am going to go have some left over turkey for lunch. Merry Christmas. May God bless you all.
