And here is my take on the challenge: Snowflakes Card. :o)

How I made my card....

I went with die-cut inlay technique on my card. :o)

To make my card I used a GORGEOUS Create a Smile Cool Cuts 'Negative Snowflake' die cut. I used only inner part of the die cut. I had some of these die-cut circles and snowflakes in my stash that I didn't need when I was making Christmas cards last year (or even two years ago). I die cut the rest of them from a Kraft cardstock and a white cardstock paper scraps . I used a piece of paper large enough to cover the inner part of the die cut.

First I glued circles on a white cardstock paper panel. Then I glued snowflakes inside each circle (die-cut inlay). When I was finished, I glued the panel on a white side folded card base and glued another white panel inside the card to make it sturdier.

Then I wrote a sentiment 'Fröhliche Weihnachten' on my computer using Impact Label Fontprinted it out on the white cardstock paper, cut it out, colored edges with a black marker and got a lovely label, as if I had label maker. :o)

Fröhliche Weihnachten means Merry Christmas on German. :o)

Lastly, I glued 3-D foam squares on the back of the label, glued it on the card and my card was finished. :o)

Card measurements: 137 mm x 105 m(5 3/8" x 4 1/8")
