Warm Winter Wishes



Haven't been able to do a challenge for a while and this card is doing double duty for the Papertake "To Die For" and the Cute Card Thursday "Christmas" challenges. It was inspired by this lovely card.

I've used nestability dies to cut the card, the snowflake paper and the small circle. It's really more of a winter card than a Christmas one so I hope it still counts. The wording across the middle actually says "winter memories" but I've very cleverly managed to cover up the "winter".

Note to self and anyone else who might want to have a go at making one of these: you probably need to position the scalloped die so the card opening falls between two scallops rather than in the middle of one as mine does because, as you can see, it only stands indepently in a very lobsided way!
