CHRISTMAS CARDS ALL YEAR ROUND - AUGUST- SNOWFLAKES


Please don't forget to scroll down 'cos I've posted twice today ... again!!!  Thank you peeps!xxx

Hi there again - this is my second post today and it's for the CCAYR challenge.  I do love being on this DT because it means I start making my Christmas cards in January!  It really does help me because I have been known to procrastinate somewhat and I don't have any excuses now!    Our theme this month is Snowflakes so we want to see any creation you like as long as you put snowflakes on there!


I used die cuts, die cuts and more die cuts on my card and Winnie didn't have to snitch at all because I bought them ages ago!  Honest.  Will confess that I haven't used the curved border or the Let it Snow dies before though!  You may also notice that I've popped a few little 'diamonds' on the snowflakes - the maestro took the initial pics without the bling but I thought it was missing that 'je ne sais quoi' so out came the gems.

Ingredients

6" x 6" White card blank - Create and Craft (eons ago!!)
Blue and White textured card - American Cardstock 12" x 12"
Curved Borders 2 dies - Card Creator - Spellbinder Dies
'Let it Snow' die - Sue Wilson Festive Collection at Creative Expressions
Giovanna Snowflake die - Poppy Stamps Dies
Bristol Snowflake die - Memory Box Dies
Snowflake DIE100F - Impression Obsessions Dies
Snowflake DIE024X - Impression Obsessions Dies

I made another of my favourite 'flat' cards so it can be posted without costing an arm and a leg!   Well that's it for now, I'm just off to start my next card and time waits for no man (or woman!).

Lots of big hugs to you all, I hope you can find time to craft a little this week.  If you have left a comment today, I would just love to say a big thank you for doing so.

Love to you all  Sue xxx


I would like to enter my card into the following 10 challenges -

  22. Love that Let is Snow die - very elegant. Even though it is a "flat" card - it has a lot of interesting texture. Thank you for joining in the challenge at CHNC Extra for August.
