This is the card my son's girlfriend made. It was her first time doing anything like this and she really enjoyed it. Hopefully we'll get to do it again soon. She added a stamped greeting to the front of the card and inked the edges. The tree top is made from two stamped snowflakes, one pink and one yellow, layered on top of one another and then a bit of bling added to the center.
We tried putting a stamped greeting on the inside but the stamping didn't work that well so we had to improvise. We decided to line the inside with the same patterned paper used to make the tree, in part to cover up the botched up stamping, and then stamp the greeting on a peice of paper and stick it on the patterned paper. She also punched a snowflake from the patterned paper and added that to the white paper. I love how it turned out!
This is the card my sister made. She liked the look of the tree tilted. She also used punched snowflake for a tree top and decided to punch some snowflakes from the front of her card for an added touch.
She used patterned paper and then white paper on the inside of her card and added the punched snowflakes from the front of the card to the inside of the card. I the finished look!
As I mentioned in my previous post when I shared the card that I made, I played with the measurements because I like to make my cards to fit normal letter size envelopes. Here is my card again and here are the measurements I used for my card:
The card base is made from a piece of 7 x 6 1/4 card stock scored at 3 1/2 to make a 3 1/2 x 6 1/4 card, the perfect size for a normal letter size envelope. Then I adhered a 6 x 3 1/4 piece of cardstock and a 5 2/4 x 3 piece of patterned paper to the front. To make the tree I used 6 squares of patterned paper - 1/2 inch, 1 inch, 1 1/2 inch, 2 inch, 2 1/2 inch, and 3 inch. The trunk of the tree was made with a 1/2 x 1 1/2 cardstock. The ribbon is 3 3/4 inches and is tucked around the cardstock adhered to the front of the card. I also used three small Glitter Glamour snowflakes to add a little bling.
I'd love to see your creations if you decide to give it a try.
