I also used this design to make a condolence card for the families of Newtown, Ct. I thought the snowflake was appropriate because the lives of those lost were unique, beautiful, pure and fleeting. I hope that the cards and letters help comfort the families a little.
For the past few years I have joined in with my "scrapbook home on the web" Creative Chaos friends and had a Christmas card swap. Here's my card for this year.
This technique is really useful for using up scraps. I cut different papers into one inch squares, ran them through the Xyron X machine and laid them on the diagonal. K and Company die cuts of cardinals and snowmen were perfect for this. I used the sentiments from Stephanie Bernard's Stamps of Life. The eyelet paper is a dollar store find from a few years ago.
