Snowflake Thanks

9 Jan

I’m trying out a new challenge site today (new to me, at least). It’s called the Pink Elephant Challenge and Ella is the mascot of the site. She’s darling! Today she inspired me to create the following card by giving the challenge of using: two designer papers, three buttons and snowflakes.

The idea of making a checkerboard with light and dark papers just popped into my head and this card was born:

It was super easy to make (and it fits into a #10 envelope):

  1. Cut eight 2×2″ squares from two contrasting papers, giving you 16 total.
  2. Cut/emboss seven snowflakes using the S4-222 Create A Flake One die template from Spellbinders™.
  3. Trim the remaining squares to 1¾x2″ adhering then as a checkerboard onto a card base.
  4. Adhere the snowflakes onto the checkerboard, placing each onto the contrasting square and leaving one place empty.
  5. Add a  rub-on sentiment.
  6. Finish it by adding three buttons using Glue Dots.

Important Stuff: Wizard™, S4-222 Create A Flake 1 (Spellbinders™); Thanks rub-on (DCWV), Mini Glue Dots (Glue Dots Intl.)

Other Stuff: White cardstock, Buttons, Blue dot papers, PVA Glue

So, what if you don’t want to make a big card but a few little ones instead. Why not try this…use each section of four blocks as a mini sketch. Here’s what they might look like:



Hmmm, just something to think about. Thanks to Pink Elephant Challenge for the inspiration and thanks for visiting.

Cheers to your week, Eli
