'Joy' Snowflake Cards

The talented Momo aka Mari is having her 19th Tuesday Challenge, the first one of 2011, click HERE to check it out (scroll down until you find the post - it should be the second one). The challenge was to create something with "snow" or a "snow theme". So I created these two cards. Originally it was just the purple one but I had some scrap silver paper and pretty ribbon so I made another! The word Joy is cut from Create a Critter. I am also entering these cards in The Paper Variety's challenge which is to use snowflakes. Click HERE to see the post. Without further ado, here are the pictures...

The Cards
  • Joy cut at 2" from Create a Critter - page 73 using shift and phrase feature buttons.
  • Silver card dimensions = 4 1/4" by 5"
  • Purple card dimensions = 4" by 5 1/4"
  • All cardstock and paper used is shimmery/glittery paper/cardstock (except inside part of purple card which is plain black) 
  • Snowflakes on inside of cards are middle cut-out part from the word joy
  • Sorry, I don't know what brand the snowflake patterned paper is, all I know is that its quite thin and came in a 8 1/2" by 11" sheet
