Thank you for stopping by today.
Today, I thought I would share with you a card I made with the theme 'snow'. The topper is from the La Pashe Cd Rom, CD 1 of the Big Pair of 2012. I matted and layered this onto a dark blue card stock and then matted and layered these onto a silver mirri card. I used Deco Art Glistening Snow Writer for the snow effect. I have had this in my stash for years and never used it!!
I took an A4 piece of white card and made this into an easel card. I used some blue snowy backing paper from the Magical Christmas Moments CD Rom from Cupcakecrafting and matted this onto dark blue and then onto silver mirri as before.
I printed a sentiment - 'It's snow time' using my computer and printer and foiled this using my hot foil machine. (This reminds me of Nicky Byrne when he danced on Strictly Come Dancing disguised as the Mask - "It's Show time".) This was then matted and layered onto the blue card and then onto the silver mirri so that it all matched. I tied a bow using silver ribbon which I have also had in my stash for ages and fixed this onto the top left hand corner using silicone glue. I cut out some snow flakes from silver mirri using my Big Shot machine and placed these on the sentiment and the topper. And that was it.
I hope the sweets remain in the box as long as the ribbon and Snow Writer have been in my stash - no I don't think so. Although Weightwatchers are trying to do their bit, I received a letter from them this morning inviting me to join their meetings. No, I don't think that's going to happen either!!
