Oh No! Another Christmas Card!

Hi everyone, following along from my previous post, here is my version of the Double Squashed Diamond fold card (DSDF for short LOL) all made up.  (Click here for the tutorial)

I used the Art Philosophy cartridge for the snow flake (page 22) cut at 2 inches.  There are two layers, then the third (underneath the snow flake) is a die cut from my stash.


The sentiment is layered on a cut shape, Art Philosophy page 46, cut at 3".  I stamped some little snow flakes in the background.


The right side has two layers, then the third layer is a die cut from my old Christmas stash.


A little bit of ribbon to finish it off.


I hope you enjoyed this one and that the tutorial works for you.

This card is being entered in the following challenges

Lexi's Creations #70 - Christmas in July (closes Aug 4)

Bitten by the Bug 2 - Christmas in July (closes Aug 5)
