Merry Christmas Among the Pines
by Anne Thompson

I had some time this week to experiment with the PINPOINT SNOWFLAKE PLATE 94513 and cut a number of backgrounds from a variety of materials--foil papers, different colored cardstocks, and printed papers.  I love the way it cuts not just the pinpoint snowflakes but the edges for a perfect card front at 5 1/2 X 4 1/4.  I chose the one I made from the pale green dot paper as the background for the PINE TREE COLLAGE 84504.

materials used

to make this card

  • I began by adhering the Pinpoint Snowflake paper to cover the front of a white notecard.
  • I cut the Pine Tree Collage pieces from white cardstock and trimmed the tree frame to fit so that a little of the Pinpoint Snowflake paper showed around the edges.  
  • I used Glue Dots to add the four tree triangles.
  • I cut both the Special Merry Christmas and the Pointed Pine Needle Frame from the darker green dot paper.  I snipped off most of the frame and place the pine needles in the upper right corner after adding Merry Christmas across the tree tops.

I have been thinking of ways to add light behind the Pinpoint Snowflakes...perhaps a three-dimensional box card lit from above with tiny LED lights might give me the effect I'm after.  I'll let you know if I come up with a plan and a product!

...And because I love working with the plaid papers...and it is fall...and plaid is this month's challenge theme...here is a bonus card for inspiration.

Happy Crafting!

Very pretty designs! The soft green background is perfect with the white die cut foreground. And the plaid flowers are such a fun touch!
