Pretty in Pink!

It's Sunday evening, time for the Amuse Studio Challenge Blog Challenge - and this weeks theme is snowflakes.  I was showing this card at a recent workshop, and someone said it would look cute with snowflakes - when I found out the prompt for this week, I just had to give it a go.

The card measures 5 1/2" x 4" when folded flat, so it fits in a standard sized envelope,  - although I suspect that USPS will still charge extra for a 'non-machinable' envelope!  Especially as I will add an extra sheet of stiff 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card to provide some support for the snowflakes en route.

The only tricky part to making this card is folding the card base.  I've included a diagram at the bottom of this post, which I hope is clear, if you have questions do let me know.  Otherwise it's just a case of using the dies to cut the snowflakes and gingerbread man, stamping and embossing the sentiment, and giving the gingerbread man some clothes.

That's all I have for you today, thanks for visiting.  Why not take a look at the other, wonderful projects that the design team have come up with, such talented ladies.

So pretty and fun. Karen, what's the measurements between the long edges and the long cut in the card? Thanks!

I tried this and used 1 1/2 inches and 4 inches - seemed to turn out just like the one pictured. I hope this helps!
