Merry Christmas Snowflake card - Winter Woodland Cartridge

I haven't done a MojoMonday Sketch in a while and thought it was time to.  I decided I better get working on some more Christmas cards.  I can't believe it is already September!  Plus with a baby due in December (actually due on Christmas but will be induced 7-10 days early) I know I should get them done sooner rather than later.  Once I'm big and miserable I know I will be glad to have them done!  Now to just get them done!!! 

I really like the way this card turned out, and I can see myself mass producing 10-12 for some of my Christmas cards.  It was quick and easy and I used some scraps which is always a good thing.  I had these papers left over from a SU Simply Sent kit that was on clearance a while back.  I bought several kits.  Not to make the same kit cards but because the price was cheaper than getting just the paper alone.

Here is what I came up with.  The picture doesn't do the sparkle justice! I hope you like it too!


The Snowflake layers were cut at 3 1/2".
Tag was cut at 2".
With Real Dial Size OFF all the layers will be perfectly proportional.

Recipe:
Card Base: SU Mellow Moss 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:  White 4" X 5 1/4"
Other Cardstock / Paper:  Ruby Red, Scraps of DP Ruby Red & Mellow Moss
Ink: SU Ruby Red
Stamps: PTI (Papertrey Ink) Mega Mixed Messages
Accessories: Cricut & Winter Woodland and Tags, Bags, Boxes & More, Cuttlebug & Snowflakes Embossing Folder, Glitter Glue, Ribbon from Wal-Mart
