Well, we had a little dusting of snow yesterday. It’s not even all that early for my great white north :), but it didn’t stick around long, and turned to rain a few hours later. Though, I’m sure those frosty flakes that stay won’t be too many weeks into the future. With that snow theme in mind, I thought I’d play with another design for the Anything Goes Challenge at The Cat’s Pajamas this week.
The sweet little stamps are from an older TCP set called J*lly H*liday, it’s since retired, but I just had to have some sweet little focal point for these pretty inset snowflakes. They are created with TCP’s Double Snowflake CutUps dies. It’s one of my favourite ways to use them. Because they are such a detailed die, you can cut them in your cardstock and then leave them inset to give you a beautiful effect. What’s great about a die like this is that you could push out some of the snowflake pieces, or leave as is, there are so many different possibilities.
The little wreath is coloured twice and the top layer popped up for a wee bit of definition.
I stamped the snowflake from the set in red on the kraft layer and then brushed some vanilla craft ink onto the edges to give it that swirly snow effect.
And then to frame out the snowflake “tag”, I used TCP’s Holiday Toppers CutUps as well. A little bit of twine finishes the tag off.
We hope you can join us in the challenge! Here are the details:
Thanks for popping by today!
