Spring a la Christmas!

  It's been a while since I posted  a new card so I thought what better way than to start the week off with a new card.  As you know I have been working on Christmas cards for the year.  By completing a few every month I am ahead of the game by Christmas time.  It's hard to get in the mood for Christmas when you are surrounded by bright colours and pastels but to tell you the truth it's also part of the challenge.


1. Create card base.  Create edge around card using scor-pal.
2. Create layers and snowflake die cut .
3. Punch border. Stamp sentiment.
4. Adhere layers, button and ribbon.


Stamp Set(s): sentiment  from Communique Curves by PTI
Cardstock: Vintage Cream by PTI
Patterned Paper: MME
Ink: True Black by PTI
Accent: button by PTI, ribbon by PTI
Tool: Snowflake punch by Martha Stewart, Scallop punch by EK Success, Scor-Pal

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Gorgeous card, Alli! Bravo for creating Christmas cards early. I have the hardest time doing that. The scoring adds such a great detail.
