Today’s share is an “over the top” last minute Glimmery Joy & Golden Snowflakes holiday card for that special person.
I was playing with my Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper pack and this is the first design I created. I had cut the letters our for another project and was glad I kept the strip “just in case”. Yay! It was awesome to combine the Large Letters (JOY) and Seasonal Layers (Snowflakes) Thinlits Die Sets. The Red Glimmer Joy and Gold Snowflakes pair fabulously with the Old Olive and Whisper White Wide Striped Designer Series Paper. The challenge I gave myself was to use the wide stripe. Normally I shy away from stripes this wide or I modify them (cutting and making them narrower). I was doing my “happy chair dance” when I had completed this one. (smile)
When trying to decide on the number of snowflakes, normally I would use an odd number. But when I showed Derek he said there was enough thirds that the four snowflakes worked. This was a “good answer” on his part, as the four snowflakes fit just right. Woohoo!
This clean and simple design shows that more isn’t always better. Lol! You may be thinking “that doesn’t look like an A2 sized card”. Well……you are right. I let the “JOY” determine the size of the design, it is 4-1/2″ x 7-1/2″. I know! It is truly a unique size card.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a great Monday and a wonderful Christmas.
