Here's my project for this challenge:

I made this shaped card using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  You can find the image on page 27, A7, Card, < Shape6 > 4 3/4".  For the first layer, I cut the same shape from page 27, A7, < Shape6 > 4 1/2".

The paper I used for the first layer is not your traditional Christmas paper pack.  It's called "Dakota" but I loved the colors and thought it would work.  Here's what the paper pack looks like:

I used the bottom sheet for my card.  If I didn't tell you it wasn't a Christmas paper pack, would you have noticed?

The snowflakes were cut from White cardstock using our Artiste Cricut cartridge.  You can find the snowflake on page 79, E9, Shift, Accent 1, < HoHoHo > cut at 2 1/2" and 3 1/2".  I then took my Bonding Memories Glue Pen to adhere Prisma Glitter to the snowflakes.  I also used a sponge dauber to add some Crystal Blue ink to the snowflakes to give them some extra dimension. 

I hope you enjoyed my project today -- I had a lot of fun creating it!

I decided to enter my card in a challenge over at Simon Says Stamps where they are having a snowflake challenge - wish me luck!

Have a wonderfully crafty day!
