Simple Cricut Snowflake Christmas Greeting Card

I mentioned that last weekend my friend Brenda and her children came over to make their Christmas cards for this year.  Brenda is new to stamping and card making, so I helped her design and assemble the cards.  We made 5 designs, 4 of each.

 This was the first card we made.  We ran the top layer through the snowflake embossing folder through the Cuttlebug.
 We used my Cricut Expression to cut out the snowflakes from the Accent Essentials cartridge.  We cut the small ones at 1 inch and the larger ones and 1.5 inches.  We cut the shadows from lavender at the same sizes.
 The packages are from square punches at the same dimensions and tied with silver ribbon.
 Once the layers on the snowflakes were assembled, we covered the top of the white snowflake in glue and added glitter.
 The smalled snowflake and package are raised on pop dots for more dimension.
Here is one more look at our Clean and Simple Christmas card.  Thanks for looking!
