Snowflake Thank You

Hi y'all!  Has it been cold where you are today?  It's really cold here, and I'm snuggled up in sweats and socks staying warm.  We had some sleet across this region this morning, and we may have some more tomorrow morning.  So how about a snowflake card to start us off on this wintry week?

I started with a couple of patterned papers and I cut the blue plaid paper with a fishtail notch using scissors. Next, I used the Snowflake 5 die (Cheery Lynn Designs) and cut it out twice, once with white cardstock and once with blue cardstock. I cut a smaller snowflake with the Snowflowers Set1 die (Cheery Lynn Designs) from white cardstock. I layered the large blue snowflake over the large white one, and then I layered the small white snowflower over the large blue snowflake. A blue button was adhered to the center and the entire snowflake was adhered to the left side of the patterned papers.

I stamped the Thank You from the Sweet Wishes stamp set (Stampavie) with some plum ink near the bottom of the card. The bottom corners were rounded off with a corner punch, and I wrapped some Chalk White seam binding around the top of the card.

The underlined products are from Classy Cards 'n Such.  You can use this code, Holly-10, to save 10% off your order when you go shopping at Classy Cards 'n Such.  There's a bunch of great stuff in the store - all the new Cheery Lynn Designs dies just arrived and they are gorgeous!  Here's hoping you're staying warm! :-)
