Tuesday Triplets

The challenge today on 365 Cards was to use three items on your card. If you used a flower, you had to use three and so on. I decided I wanted to start making some Christmas cards so I pulled out last year’s paper pack Christmas Magic Collection by Little Yellow Bicycle. The snowflake punch outs were on the first page. It was a sign!

I punched out three of them and set about getting the right background paper. If you click on the image to enlarge it, you will see that some of the circles are blue, so the blue snowflake really isn’t out of place on this card :) I added a sentiment by Penny Black and even though our sentiment didn’t have to be done three times, it was appropriate to stamp Let it Snow….Let it Snow….Let it Snow. I added three new teardrops from Robin’s Nest and my bow is a triple one made with my Bow Easy. I hand trimmed the front flap of my card to give it that wavy look. No fancy scissors will achieve that wave.

I have got to run back to work for a meeting tonight. Hopefully it won’t last too long as I still have to work on yesterday’s color combo card.
