Christmas in July!

Team B are hosting the Teddy Bo challenge for the next two weeks and the theme this time around is
Christmas in July
so here's the chance to get your first 2012 Christmas card made, unless you are super organised and have been doing them since January.

I went for a really quick and easy card this time around, after colouring the image in Photoshop I printed it straight onto Linen card from Paper Mill Direct, adding the wording and snowflake border first, cut the card in half to make 2 A5 pieces, scored a line 2cms  in from the LH edge of the blank piece, applied double sided tape to the scored section, and then stuck them back together again to make my A5 landscape card.

I added a crystal cabochon to the centre of each snowflake and voila! one quick and easy card.

Wording - Computer generated
Snowflake border - Santa and Friends - Kay miller Designs
Crystal Cabochons - Meiflower

I was playing around with the printer settings when I printed my card and the one above was printed as plain paper but I selected vivid instead of natural. The colours seemed to come out a bit deeper, so I printed a second card on the plain paper setting, but selected my usual natural, to see if there was much difference.
As I had two cards printed and they are so easy to put together I decided to use the second print too, but this time around I attached metallic silver ribbon across the front of the card before sticking the two pieces together, and added a bow and some jingle bells.

Details as above except Ribbon and Jingle Bells - Meiflower
