No Mosaic? No Problem!

  If you love the look of Inspiration Mosaic, you will love creating your own frames, grids and backgrounds with the just the one rectangle from Beyond Baskets 2!   This holiday card can be made in 5 minutes with my Beyond Baskets 2  and Let it Snow (flakes and sentiment) by Theresa Momber from Gina K Designs. Aren't those flakes gorgeous on the clean intersecting lines?
Start by stamping the rwctangle a few times horizvonatally, and a few times vertically with Kraft Ink.  TIP:  Keep all the lines parallel and perpendicular to one another for a flawless pattern!
Repeat with just a few rectangles on either side in Red Hot, and then a couple more on the opposite corners with Cherry Red.  Stamp Joy in an open space in the middle. Add snowflakes in all these color at a few corners and intersections.  Accent flake middles with adhesive rhinestones. Base is Cherry Red.
 I will be making a ton of these for Christmas!   If you *do* have the mosaic set already, consider just stamping the frame and then adding Theresa's flakes to make the frame virtually ***sparkle***!
Have a great day!
