Silent Night


I had bought this Snowy Village cuttlebug folder months ago and had never used it. I hope you can see it clearly. The white embossing is hard to photograph. I loved the idea of making quick and easy Christmas cards with it and then realized that I had enough Christmas Cards for two years! I default to Christmas cards when I'm feeling a bit anxious though. There's something about (the idea of) snow that is relaxing. At least if you don't have to drive in it. I was a bit frustrated because the village nestie doesn't really fit a standard 4.25*5.5 card so I was really happy when I realized that the snow border anchors the diecut perfectly.

I may just have to make some gift sets with this layout afterall.

Challenges this card meets:
Cards for Men - Christmas in July
Creative Card Crew - To Die For
Fussy and Fancy - Christmas in July
One Stop Craft - Monochromatic
