Hi, it's Holly posting today.  Can you believe it's less than three months to Christmas?  I'm starting on my Christmas cards with this pretty Snowflake Rose card I'm sharing with you today.
Before I get to the details, here are the items that I've used from the Classy Cards 'n Such store:
Lacey Circles dies (Spellbinders)
Medium Rose dies (Cheery Lynn Designs) - I used the leaf from this die
Anastasia border die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Cuties 3 die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Snowflake 5 die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Merry Christmas die set (Cheery Lynn Designs)
I started off with a 4x4 inch square of paper from the Rejoice paper pad, and I adhered that to a red mat (4 1/8" square) which is adhered to a vanilla card base (4.25" square).  I experimented with the Anastasia border die to see how I wanted to frame my snowflake.  If you look closely, you will see that I cut the fancy edge of the border die cut so that you just see about 1/4" of it.  I love this delicate framing on the edges of the patterned paper.
I cut a Lacey Circle from vanilla cardstock and then a smaller circle from red cardstock.  The Snowflake 5 die was used to cut a vanilla snowflake which I adhered to the red circle.  The green leaf comes from the Medium Rose die, and I cut the Cuties 3 die cut from vanilla cardstock.  Before I rolled up the Cuties 3 die cut, I sponged some red ink on the edges.  It really helps to use a quilling tool to roll up these Cuties die cuts.
I needed a sentiment on the inside, so I cut the smaller Merry Christmas sentiment from red cardstock and glued it down.  This card turned out better than I envisioned it in my head!  I love it when that happens!  :-)

Don't you just love Holly's creativity???  Christmas will be here soon, so stay tuned to the Classy Cards blog and shop for great ideas and great products!!
