Beat the Christmas Rush - April

But what happened to BtCR March, I hear you cry?  Ahem.  Actually these are the cards I made for March - but never got to photographing and subsequently uploading LOL.  So now they are all ready for BtCR April!
One of my favourite quick designs, a simple nine-patch card.  I used a scalloped square punch to echo the scalloped card blanks and some Craft Creations snowflake papers in pale blue and white.  The letters were robo-cut (font: Cairo) from Bazzill (not sure of the colour, possibly Typhoon).  The frame is done with peel-off lines, groups the squares together nicely.
The key to success with this design is to line up the squares precisely, or it just doesn't look right!
