Snowflake card

Well it's Wednesday and what a crazy month it has been up till now. I love this card
This is a super simple card.  I cut the green base 1/4" smaller than the card base on all sides.  The pattern paper was cut at 1/2" smaller than the card base and layered with the green.  I than used some snowflake printed ribbon from Michael's as the "belly band" and the snowflake was cut from the snowflake seasonal cartridge at 4" for the shadow (red) and the flake (white glitter paper).

Here you can see the glitter paper--here is a hint. I always use multi cut on glitter papers.  If not it never cuts through and you get a pretty ugly rough edge cut.  I also only attacked the flake around the center circle so there is come 3D effect that was hard to capture in the picture.

Here is the inside.  I used the same papers from the outside along with a fun stamp set from CTMH called Christmas Melodies (D1324) that was available last year.  I love this set and you can find it on ebay from time to time. 

here is the envelope--used my handy dandy fiskers edge punch that I love so much and a strip of the same pattern paper--I was using as many scraps as possible. 

I will be back on Thursday with a gift wrap idea--so make sure to check back in.
Make it a great one-
