Blue Christmas

Kortet mitt idag er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #155., og det nydelige hovedmotivet er fra vår sponsor LeAnn's World 101. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)

This is the first time I tried the USA version of an A2 card, how weird is that! An A2 is actually HUGE here, bigger than both an A4 and the A3. I think the most similar to their A2 is our A6. So I had to find all the measurements and voila! A lot of the dies I got from American brands have been made specially for their A2's, so I might start making more of them :)
This is the best source I found to explain card sizes at Card-Making-Magic.

My DT card for challenge #155. at Creative Fingers has a beautiful motif from our generous sponsor LeAnn's World 101.
As always Creative Fingers is having an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥
