Welcome to the SUO challenge! And what a great challenge we have for this time of year…last minute card and gift ideas. I don’t know about you…but I know I sure could use some last minute ideas…well considering I haven’t even STARTED my Christmas cards yet…EEK!!!
So check out the SUO Design Team to see what they came up with. I decided to show BOTH a last minute card and matching gift idea. Honestly…this was a card we did for my World Card Making Day event and since I hadn’t shared it yet and it is a VERY simple card, I decided to use it for the challenge.
Here’s the details…
- Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
- Pool Party Snowflake Print – 4 x 5 1/4, add to card front
- Shimmery White – 2 1/4 x 4 3/4, stamp greeting using Versamark and Silver Emboss. Cut out the smallest Festive Flurry framelit. Round the bottom corners.
- Add Silver 1/8″ Ribbon to top then add to card front using dimensionals.
- Add Frosted Embellishment to center of cut out snowflake
I’ve had these little frames sitting around my house FOREVER!!! I got them at Target and they came 3 in a pack for $2.50. The inside opening on the frame is 3 1/2 x 3 1/2. You really can’t beat that. I bought them in both white and black and have used them for so many different projects over the years. It was perfect for a little snowflake frame to go along with the card. This would not only make a nice Christmas gift but it could be used as a decoration all through the Winter.
Here’s the details:
- Shimmery White – 4 x 4
- Pool Party Snowflake print – cut out 2nd to largest snowflake. Add this panel to the Shimmery White piece using dimensionals.
- Cut out the 2nd to smallest snowflake from the Silver Glimmer paper. Add to panel using double dimensionals.
- Stamp smallest snowflake using Versamark, emboss using Pool Party embossing powder, cut out with the smallest snowflake framelit, add to panel using dimensionals.
- Add Frosted Embellishment to center of snowflake to finish it off and add panel to frame.
So I hope you enjoyed my last minute projects. Check out what the rest of the SUO Design Team did for their last minute cards and gifts!
