Sending my niece in Florida a winter birthday card this year for her Christmas Eve birthdate just in case she misses the cold and sometimes snowy weather in Pennsylvania. For my card today, I am also entering it into the fun As You See It Challenge: Challenge #240 Recipe for Winter Fun which must include the following:
My card base is a side fold card that creates a square focal point. I found a tutorial for this card on Splitcoaststampers and thought I’d give it a try. You cut a piece of cardstock 4-1/4 x 11″ and score at the 5-1/2″ mark and again at 6-3/4″ then fold in half and back on itself taping or gluing the scored sections together leaving the opening 4-1/4 x 4-1/4. It may be easier to check out the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers if you are interested in this fold.
To make my recipe, I included patterned paper (patterned paper check) from my stash mounted on red cardstock (red check), added some gold twine (twine or ribbon check) to the side sealed portion, die cut some snowflakes and layered them in the center of the card (snowflakes check), and die cut Happy Birthday (die cut check) to complete my recipe for this challenge and my card.
Thanks for stopping by today. Another fun challenge over at the As You See It Challenge blog.
