Hello!! This is one of two posts for today! If you like to win stuff, then after you are done with the Crafty Elves, see my second post for today for a chance to win some stuff!
Welcome back to the Crafty Elves! Every 25th of the month my fellow elves and I share the Christmas cards we made during the month! It's a very very hectic time for me right now. The 15th was a tax deadline and October 15th is another so I went the quick and easy route!
Here's how I was inspired:
A Jillian Vance Design has a new release this week and part of that is this awesome Bold Snowflake Die! I love the size of it! It's big enough to be the star of your card and that's just what I made it for these! I used some pretty Gina K Designs papers and used a rectangle die and taped the snowflake centered inside of it and cut them both at the same time. I did those twice from two different papers. That left me with two panels for shakers and two snowflakes!
I cut two sizes of rectangles for these ones and used a snowflake embossing folder on the smaller panel. then I cut the snowflake twice more from white cardstock and stacked my three snowflakes together for support. I added all of my layers and popped the snowflake up over it. Then I stamped my sentiment from the Let It Snow onto a Sentiment Strip and then added that and instead of trimming the strip I wrapped it around to the back of the card.
I used the same basic design for all of the cards... and the white layer behind the shaker is also embossed with snowflakes! I stamped my sentiments using Color Fuse Inks from Rubbernecker Stamps.
And that is me for today!
Whew! 9 months and we're still going strong! Before you know it it will be time to address the envelopes and mail them out again!
