Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge #43 and Snowflake/Flourish Card Template



Hi Friends! It's Friday and that means it's Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge time again!! This week is Patty of Mis Creacions turn to host this week's challenge. Her challenge is to create an "Out of the Box" card. . .basically create a card that is any shape other than a standard shaped card. I had a lot of shapes going through my head. . .I was going to create a Christmas Stocking shaped card but I already had the Pink Cat Studio Lily image already colored so I decided to go with a snowflake shaped card. I liked the flowers on the snowflake shape and it matched the image more than a stocking shape would have.

I cut the shape using my Cricut Expression using my Sure Cuts A Lot 2 program. Below is the template for the SCAL2 . . .it's in jpeg format. On SCAL2, click on the "trace" feature and it will upload the jpeg image. I adjusted the width (keep proportion) to 5.25". Whenever you adjust the size, always "keep the proportion" so it'll adjust appropriately unless you want the shape to look different.


Sure Cuts A Lot 2 Template

I really didn't have plans to cut around the image but my Nestie Circle Shape was too small for the image so I had to cut around the image. I added a bit of Stickles to the image and around the scallop shape.

Anyway, be sure to stop by Christmas Stampin All Year Long and check out the fabulous cards the design team created! Hope you'll play along this week!!! Hope y'all have a wonderful Friday!!
