More Carols of Christmas

Welcome back to my creative haven.  I have another Christmas card using the new Carols of Christmas bundle to share with you.  In my last post I mentioned that I love blue, white and silver cards.  That combination doesn't have to be exclusively for Christmas, but I think that it does work rather well for that occasion!  I also love small, square cards. 

So for today's card I'm showing you a cute card that ticks both those boxes!  The Card Front Builder thinlits contains a die that naturally creates a rectangular frame for a card front.  You can see how I have done this on my card HERE.

It was easy to make a square frame instead.  I started with a square layer of Night of Navy card (10cm x 10cm) and cut out one side of the frame.  Next, I lined the frame up again in the opposite corners of the layer.  The middle section of the die overlaps with the middle section that has already been cut.  I secured the die with a couple of pieces of washi tape to ensure that it didn't wobble out of place.  After the second pass through the Big Shot I had a lovely square card front all ready for the layer with the words.

The silver element for this card is in the form of silver heat embossing to create another faux frame around the words.  The little blue stars in the corners are "waste" from cutting the frames.  Waste not, want not!  The white layer is popped up on dimentionals so that it sits proud of the blue frame.

Thank you for visiting today.  Happy Crafting,
