Snowflake Day


Continuing on with my note card creations, I have two sets of cards to share with you.  When I saw the challenge over at Just Us Girls, I immediately thought of my mother-in-law.  She loves everything blue.  I also thought about this amazing card from Cristina.  It is beyond gorgeous.  I decided to CASE it using blues and a snowflake.  One design idea is that this card works a lot better if the die has a small center like the butterfly on Cristina's.  When I cut off half the snowflake, it didn't look right, so I kept the snowflake inlaid on the strips of card stock. Does that make any sense?!  Anyways...I'm happy with the end result!

Before I made these cards, I made a much simpler card set using a new Verve set.  If you haven't been over to the Verve site, they have an awesome sale going on to celebrate their sixth anniversary! I inked the snowflake wreath up with three different ink colors and made a quick set of cards.
 

Last but not least, I had a bit of extra paper left over, so I die cut another snowflake and made one last card.

Hope you enjoy all of the blue/snowflakes!
