Another Christmas card using mats, stamps and Washi tape along with a diecut. I started with a 5 x 7 inch white card blank and then cut a slightly smaller matt in white textured card and I rounded the corners with a corner chomper.
Onto this I stamped some distressed spots in red Memento dye ink and the sentiment in the same green ink. This was matted on foam pads on the card front.
Another matt in more white card was then cut and again I rounded the corners. I chose 5 different Washi tapes in Christmas colours and applied these in stripes over the matt. I then diecut a snowflake in silver Mirri card and embellished the points with some green self adhesive cabochons.
I wrapped some bakers twine around the top of the matt and tied in a knot, securing at the back with some more tape. The matt was attached to the card on more foam pads and the snowflake added on a couple more to finish.
