Snowflake Card

P1050169 

Hi Everyone! We are forecasted to see our first snowflakes of the season this week. Good timing with receiving the Snowflake punch! Look for a 'flury' of projects over the next week or two incorporating this winter-time element!

 How to make:
Take a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Bashful Blue 105120 and score at 1/4" and at 4 3/8" along the 8.5" side. Fold 1/4" over and apply Sticky Strip 104294  down  length. Using the Snowflake punch 119852, punch image. With 3/4" circle punch 119873 punch 1/2 circle at top to access insert. Adhere side to 1/4" folded score. See pictures. You'll notice after I scored, I repositioned the card so I made sure to punch where I wanted.

The insert is 4" x 5 1/2" of Whisper White 100730 . I used the blue snowflake punch out with a silver brad. Adhere with a Mini Glue dot 103683. Next I stamped Merry Christmas from Tiny Tiny Wishes 115370. Punch out with Word Window 119857. With Bashful Blue, punch out image with Modern Label 119849. Adhere with Snail104332. Tie Whisper White Organza Ribbon114319 and Clear Tinsel Trim 120093 around outside.

I like the simplicity of this card but one could easily step up this layout.  

Date to Remember: DECEMBER 16TH is the last day to insure you receive your order by Christmas. Happy Crafting!~Dee

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Everyone! Happy Thanksgiving!! My sister is hosting Thanksgiving tomorrow. I am bringing just a few, quick to make items. Which means I'm free to start, what my hubby calls, the migration of Christmas tubs from the basement! I like to put holiday decorations up over Thanksgiving weekend.

This Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for family, health and friends. And a BIG THANK YOU to all my customers, blog and YouTube followers and Stampin' UP! I've met some fabulous people, most I now consider friends, and connected with so many crafters. And an even BIGGER thank you to my hubby Jeff, who supported my 'I think I want to try holding card class and this Stampin' UP thing', eats his dinner in the living room while we ladies take over the kitchen and never says a thing about crafting all over the house...which if it was his stuff, I would be having a fit ;) lol

Wishing you and your loved ones a Happy Thankgiving! ~Dee
