Celebrate! Christmas card a day!

Today's card is just a bit beyond Christmas, it's for New Year's! You'll need Wonderland paper and the Snowflakes set plus I used a January Word Puzzle set that's retired. Cut a piece of crystal blue cardstock 5 1/2" by 4 1/4" and distress with twilight ink. Cut 1 1/4" squares either by hand or using the great Art Philosophy cartridge that you can only buy from Close to my Heart from the various patterned papers in the Wonderland set. You'll need twelve of them.

Distress the squares and line them up in a grid pattern and attach, yes this is hard to do if you are like me and want everything perfect but try to let that go and just be less than perfect.

Cut snowflakes according to the sizes on the stamp set with your Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. The sizes you need to match the stamp set are listed for you right next to the stamp, isn't that convenient? This large snowflake is 3 1/4". Stamp on it with the matching stamp using grey wool ink. Attach to right hand side of the card.

Next I added the crystal blue snowflake and cut it 3" wide but didn't stamp on it. Attach as shown.

Cut out the middle snowflake 1 3/4" and stamp using crystal blue ink with the matching stamp.
Attach to center of snowflake piece.

Cut a white daisy cardstock base 8 1/2" by 5 1/2" and fold in half. Stamp Happy New Year inside using crystal blue ink.

Using Shimmer Designer Brads choose a large one for the center of the snowflake. Cut a piece of white daisy cardstock 2" by 1" and stamp the word "celebrate" with grey wool ink. Distress and attach to lower right of the card. Attach to card base. If you like this card, you can click on the links above to get the supplies you need.
