One of my resolutions for the new year is to make at least two cards each month. I absolutely love cards. I recently purchased a Silhouette Cutter by Quickutz mainly because of their beautiful card designs. You could also achieve the same effect of the snowflake cutout above by using rub-ons, stamps or even punches.

Product List

Two pieces of solid cardstock (I used a light gray and purple)
Bo Bunny Snowy Serenade Collection Patterned Paper - Winter Night
Silhouette - Card Design - Winter Snow (optional)
Spellbinders - Nestabilities Collection - Die Cutting and Embossing Templates - Small Standard Circles
Spellbinders - Nestabilities Collection - Die Cutting and Embossing Templates - Small Classic Scalloped Circles
Distress Ink - Broken China
Foam Squares


Cut a 6x10 inch piece of solid gray cardstock and score in the middle.

Cut a piece of purple cardstock to mount to the inside of the card.

Cut a piece of the Bo Bunny paper to mount on the outside of the card to the left of the die cut design. If you are not using the die cut card design, leave a 1 1/2" solid edge on the right side of the card front. You can leave it plain or decorate with stickers, rub-ons or stamps.

Cut or punch a scalloped circle using the purple cardstock.

Cut or punch a smaller plain circle using the gray cardstock.

Stamp a sentiment to the center of the solid gray circle.

Adhere the smaller plain circle to the purple scalloped circle using foam squares.

Adhere foam squares to the back, left side of the scalloped circle.

Adhere the circles to the middle of the card.

Tie a ribbon to the left edge of the card and tie in a knot.

Thanks for joining me today. See you tomorrow.
