Snowflakes with Kraft & Gingham

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog.
It's a cold day here in Pittsburgh but no snow forecasted for us like in other areas of the East Coast. One of those perfect days for staying indoors and doing some crafting. That's my plan anyway since I have cards due for a couple of the DT's that I am on.
I don't think I ever mentioned on my Blog that I was selected for the Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen Design Team. It's a real honor and one that I am so thrilled about.
Now onto today's card. This one I created for my post on the CottageCutz Blog. I am using the Snowflakes Set and the Season's Greetings w/Snowflakes dies. So let's get started with some details on the CAS card.

Step 1: I love the look of both kraft and white cardstocks together for Christmas cards.  It just has that country look to it especially when paired with red gingham ribbon.

White Card base: 4 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Kraft Panel: 4 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Step 2: Cut the snowflakes and the Season's Greeting phrase from white card stock. I also cut another seasons' greetings in gold as an afterthought. I did a slight offset just for added interest. This is something you could leave off the card as well.
I attached them to the card base with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I like this adhesive because it dries clear.
Once I positioned the snowflakes I added my red gingham ribbon. I decided to add a bow to give this a more finished look. But you could leave that off also if you like. Then I thought some gold sequins would also be a nice touch.
Step 3: Attached the image panel to the white card base to complete my card. I hope I have given you an idea for a quick Christmas card. If you need these dies they are available now in the online store.
Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time.......God Bless.
