I do love blue and white for Christmas cards and was inspired to make this when I stumbled across a card I'd kept to upcycle from last Christmas:
- 5.75" x 5.75" square white card blank
- a layer of navy card, cut just a little smaller than the card front and glued in place
- topped that with a one eighths of an inch all round smaller piece of patterned card stock - it's called 'Merry Mistletoe' made by Kanban - and is one of my favourite backgrounds although it's not always easy to find blues (apart from navy) that look right with it
- then I chopped the front of the small Waitrose Christmas card into a somewhat smaller square, still leaving a white border all around
- mounted the image panel onto a larger square of the same navy card stock I used for the first layer on the card front
- then glued the complete image topper with navy frame onto the card front
Such an easy card to make and I did think about kidding you that the word 'hope' had been die cut by yours truly :)
I'd like to enter this card into the current challenge over at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge 286, where it's 'Cute or anything goes' this week.
Am also linking into Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for June, where it's always 'Anything goes'.
