Christmas Card Club - Monochromatic Design

Kate at I Love Socks and Cards blog, chose a Monochromatic theme for this fortnights' Christmas Card Club.

While I still had my supplies out on my desk, I have created another Let it Snow card.   I usually forget to use my embossing folders, but I saw so many lovely embossed cards on my Blogger reader that I was inspired to use one of mine as well.


This is another 5 1/4 inch square card, but this time it was created completely from snippets.. The aqua embossed background was created with a snippet of Bazzill 110 pound card and a La Crea Embossing folder. The Memory Box Bianca Snowflake was cut from snippets of white glitter card that were left over from creating 12 card kits of this design for my Langley Stampers Club. I used my last snippet for the Sue Wilson  Let it Snow die, and the sentiment is my favourite, tried and true  Christmas stamp.




A group of 12 ladies get together once a month and we take turns creating and bringing card kits for the others. Although I have had my turn this year, one of our members is very poorly and so I took over her turn. Another lady helped out as well and we each brought 12 card kits.

Once I had finished making up all the kits, I had quite a few snippets, let me tell you. So I just kept cutting and making up more kits! They should be great fun to assemble during the coming weeks. One can never have too many finished Christmas cards!


The center aqua mirri card snowflake is Memory Box, Trio of Pointed Snowflakes. I used some snippets to cut the  two smaller snowflakes from this trio, and used the second snowflake on the back of this card.




I am entering this card in the following challenges:
