Baja Snowflake

It may seem silly to be creating a Christmas card at the end of January, but I am playing along with the ladies at 'Tis the Season for their latest color challenge (TTS9)!

Instead of Marina Mist, I used Baja Breeze. I have a TON of Baja Breeze felt snowflakes left over from another project, and I'm trying to use them up. I also wanted to use the Ski Slope DSP because it has BOTH colors in it!

For my layout, I used the sketch from Mojo Monday #330 (MOJO330).

My "tall & skinny" card measures 4" by 7" so I had to make a custom envelope for it. I used the same pattern of DSP that I used on the card, so it coordinates beautifully!

Here is a peek at just the envelope itself. If you have been holding off on getting the Envelope Punch Board, I highly recommend it. It is definitely on my list of top 3 stamping tools I couldn't live without!
