CFC76 - Snowflake Merry Christmas


Day two of Getting Krafty for this week's CASual Friday challenge.



This is my newest snowflake die - it's a Sizzix (ETA - Actually a Lifestyles Crafts) die. I love the size and the simplicity of it. I cut it in kraft and then coated it in Stardust Stickles. A red card base and a simple A Muse (ETA - actually Savvy) sentiment and another Christmas card done for my pile.

I have a number of projects I'm falling behind on - my Church Christmas, some horse cards for my sister and  photo Christmas cards for a friend (this will be year 4) - so don't be surprised to start seeing a lot of these on the blog in the very near future!

ETA: This card was chosen as a VIP!

Ardyth, this card is GORGEOUS! ...and listening to the weather forecasters wax on about 'Frankenstorm' - I'd say your snowflake is very timely indeed. :)

Gorgeous snowflake Ardyth!

Geri said...

Using the kraft paper for the element (versus the base) is so clever...and then to stickle it up and give it some pizazz is sheer genius! Looks stunning with the red & white.

I agree with you - it's a wonderful die because of it's size but complete simplicity. Perfect for your CAS card!
