Christmas Card Idea: Snowflake Design

Christmas Card Idea: Snowflake Design

One way to ensure good card design is to repeat the existing design elements. On this card you'll see that I repeat quite a few of the elements.

What you need

Patterned paper
Rub-on sentiment
1 1/2″ circle punch
Decorative Scissors
Dimensional adhesive dots


The background paper has a scalloped edge on the circles which I repeated on the sentiment panel. The background also has red circles around it which I also repeated on the border. The colors are even drawn from the background and repeated. Next time you’re making a card, think about what design elements you can draw from the the background paper!

1. Cut card base to 8.5′ x 5.5″ score and fold in half

2. Apply adhesive to the card base front and apply patterned paper. Let it dry and trim away the excess.

3. Trim dotted border from paper to 5.5″ wide and adhere to card.

4. Punch green circle from patterned paper and mount onto white cardstock. Trim around with decorative medium scallop scissors. Mount onto card using foam adhesive for added dimension.

5. For a finishing touch add rhinestones to the card.


  1. CUTE!!! I LOVE IT! don’t know if I have the stuff to make it though, maybe I need to go shopping! I like to make Christmas cards for family and friends, but I have to do it a few months ahead of time, so I can get them all done.
