Four Snowflakes

What have you been doing this weekend? I've been making a list and checking it twice. Oh yeah, I still have Christmas shopping to do so I've been working on my last minute shopping list hoping to finish it all tomorrow. I can dream, can't I? I also put up my tree and decorated it. Woo hoo - it's beginning to feel like Christmas at my house! Lights on the window and a real wreath on my front door finish up the decorating.

I also have grand plans to actually address some Christmas cards so they can be mailed on Monday. Hmm... we'll see how that goes. Ha ha!

In the meantime I thought I would take a break from the never ending shopping list (must remember to pick up some shampoo too!) and share one of my latest winter creations with you! The only stamping on this card is the sentiment at the bottom. That is it. The rest is punching, glitter and paper!

I punched four snowflakes, sponged their edges with Close to Cocoa ink and adhered some glitter to their centers. These were then attached to 1" Chocolate Chip circles with dimensionals and affixed to a panel of Shimmery white cardstock. This piece was then adhered to a 4" sqaure of vellum. Next up was adhering the vellum to a 4" piece of designer paper. I just used a line of strong tape across the top which was then covered by ribbon when attaching all the layers together. I did this so it could be lifted and the pretty Wassail paper looked at. The designer paper was then layered on a 4 1/8" square of Chocolate chip, the ribbon knotted around all of these layers and then the whole shebang attached to a 4 1/4" Bravo Burgundy card base with dimensionals

Well I'm off to wrap a couple of gifts. A few down, several more to go!!!

P.S. What do you think of my new blog header? I was messing around the other day in Paint Shop Pro and made it! :)
