Summer Snowflakes ...

I know it is still only August but I am determined to get ahead with my Christmas cards - I'm happy with this card and it is likely to be the second design that I will use this year.

The design, layout and colour scheme is based on the challenge at TIMEOUT to CASE designer Anita's card:

I am in awe of Anita's designs her cards are absolutely stunning, it really is worth taking the time to pop across and have a look at her blog you will not be disappointed.

This is what I came up with:

I hope I have done justice to Anita's design.

I used the following:

Uniko Studio Stunning Snowflakes
Distress Inks - Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass
Heat it up Embossing Powder

I will also enter the Uniko Studio challenge - special occasion.



  1. You have MORE than done justice to Anita's card, Elaine!! And thank you for giving me a marvelous idea for making my own Christmas cards!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. what a fab take on Anita's card Elaine. I haven't seen a Christmas die used before, would love to know where you got it. So pleased you joined us at TIME OUT Challenges x

    1. The Christmas is from a die set by Xcut - there are 14 dies called Christmas Sentiments. I picked it up in The Range. Thanks for the kind comments.

  3. What a beautiful, Christmassy take on Anita's card! I love the way you stamped the snowflakes and might need to steal your idea... :) Thank you for taking TIME OUT and joining our challenge!

  4. Oh Elaine, I really appreciate your sweet words, thank you ... and what a fabulous card! The flurry of snowflakes is perfect in the cool, crisp blues with the touch of shimmery silver ... and I do love that stacked 'Christmas'! Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out ... and for such a fantastic CASE! Anita :)

  5. This is great, Elaine! I love your twist on Anita's card and that border of snowflakes in cool blues is gorgeous. I will go looking for that Christmas die cut too - it would be perfect for Christmas card manufacture :)

  6. What a super Christmascard! It looks so fresh and modern! Thank you for taking the TIME OUT and join us!
