I finally cut into a piece of 12" designer paper I've had since my scrapbooking days and made a card with it. The front has white snowflakes, while the reverse side is a dark teal color. I found it hard to use on cards because of the big patterns, but cutting just a strip works for this card. I flipped a piece over and cut it to give the horizontal panel a little contrasting mat, and then decided to cut the square elements with it as well. The bottom 2 squares were done with a GMD stitched square die, while the scalloped panel was done with a SU! punch. The snowflake was done with a Lawn Fawn stitched snowflake die and a snippet of pool party cardstock, and I added several clear gemstones along with a Northwoods sentiment.
I'll enter this into the following challenges :
