Paper craft project no. 403: Believe one layer card

Click here for my post for the
STAMPlorations Giving Thanks blog hop.

Howdy! For the next couple of weeks, it's the Inspired by Words challenge at Time Out. The phrase: Snowflakes are winter's butterflies. Pretty metaphor, isn't it?

I zeroed in on the word "snowflakes" and went with creating a {surprise!} one layer Christmas card :o) When I was rummaging around our trailer one day last week, I discovered to my delight that I had a stack of 12x12 chalkboard cardstock from DCWV. I hoard way too many designer papers and cardstock and promptly forget about them. I think this one has been languishing in my stash for a couple of years. So I picked one of the dark green chalkboard cardstock and cut out three 4x6 cards from it. With my HA unicorn ink, I stamped the sentiment (Bold Sentiments: Believe), the snowflakes (Framed Christmas: Peace Love Joy), and the grunge border (Mixed Media Elements), and the card is done :o)

Check out the cards that the rest of the TO design team made. Plus we've got Ashwini from Experiments with Cardmaking joining us as guest designer.

Fun challenges:

CAS(E) This Sketch #150
AAA Cards #53 - Anything Goes
Fab 'n' Funky #283 - Christmas
Stampavie and More #250 - Snowflakes
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
The Card Concept #44 - Festive Glory (I took my cue from the giant brown snowflake hanging behind the comfy chair; my card is CAS)
