Kraft Christmas

I have a couple of CAS Christmas cards to share today, I have made them for this weeks Less is More challenge - the theme is Non-traditional Colour Christmas Card, no red or green.

I have chosen Kraft card stock for my non-traditional colour.  The snowflakes are a Clearly Besotted die and the sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.

On this card I have cut the snowflake from the Kraft card stock to make an aperture and mounted it onto a white base.


On this one I have mounted the die cut snowflake on top of the Kraft card stock, I cut two snowflakes and adhered them together to give it a little more dimension.


I can't make my mind up which one I like the best, what do you think?

I would like to enter my cards into the following challenges:

Less is More Week 196 - Colour challenge Non- Traditional Christmas
Christmas Card Challenge 49 - No Embellishments
Card Mania Challenge 59 - Use Your Dies
Dream Valley Challenge 94 - Getting Ready for Christmas

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

Two beautiful cards Pauline, I think I prefer the one that has been cut into the Kraft card (first one) as you have the added pattern around the die cut, hope that makes sense?

Love & Hugs
