Three Minute snowflake cards

If you're anything like me, you'll be congratulating yourself on being wonderfully organised about Christmas and then suddenly realise you've run out of Christmas cards for the neighbours! Luckily, it's quick and easy to run up a batch of my three minute cards today. Come and have a look:

It's the cutting that takes most time on these cards (although if you have Stampin' Up's table top cutter, you can get everything cut in no time at all as it enables you to make accurate cuts through four or five sheets of card stock at once!)

The panel is stamped with a Cherry Cobbler sentiment and surrounded by three snowflakes from Mixed Medley stamped in Real Red ink. I mounted this onto a Cherry Cobbler mat before attaching to the Crumb Cake card base - the different reds give a bit of depth to this simple card.

To finish the card I added a tiny circle of red glimmer paper cut out with my hand held hole punch - it fits the snowflake centre perfectly.

Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Mixed Medley, Petite Pairs
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Real Red
Card stock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Other: Red glimmer paper, hand held punch, stamp-a-majig
I'd be delighted to order any of these items for you and have them delivered straight to your address in the UK. I'm committed to providing excellent customer service and am always happy to offer help and advice. To place your order, just send me an email or give me a call on +44 (0) 1280 820593.

I don't think the British Isles are going to see any snow over the Christmas holiday this year - from the forecast it looks as if it's going to be wet instead. But even if we did see a snowflake or two, I'd be extremely surprised if they were red!

Now, it's time for me to roll my sleeves up and get cooking as we're expecting company this evening! See you tomorrow for a final post before we pull the shutters down for Christmas.
