The challenge is to make a "shaped card" that is not square or rectangular but will fit in a A2 envelope and meet OWH criteria. As I was thinking about what type of card to make I also thought about another card challenge I wanted to combine this with and that is the ABC Christmas Card Challenge. Their challenge is "L for Lyrics" . We are to use the theme of a Christmas song or carol for our inspiration for our cards. I think I have accomplished both in this CAS card. It took me several attempts to achieve the look I was going for but it finally came together.
I used a Sizzix Snowflake #4 die to cut out the snowflake. Then using the snowflake as a pattern I cut the card base out of Worldwin "Elan Metallic" paper adding a quarter inch on all sides and leaving a side uncut for the fold. Then using a Tim Holtz Alterations embossing folder I embossed the edges of the card base. I then cut a snowflake out of American Crafts Dear Lizzy "Christmas - Jolly Jingle". The words to Jingle Bells are on the green paper. I put clear bling in the corners of the snowflake and added a crepe ribbon bow.
I had so much fun making this one I decided to try a different shape with a different theme. This one is also CAS.
I'm on a roll. I'm off to go create some more! Have a good one!
