I call this one, Snowflake Window. I used plain white card stock. I use clear vellum and stamped white snowflakes all over it with the Stamp from Winter Post. I stamped a piece of Whisper White  first with the flower pot from Always in My Thoughts. I embossed the image in black to begin, then used the water color crayons to fill in. Once this was complete, I glued it on

After I completed the water color, I attached the image with adhesive. I laid the stamped vellum on top of the attached image and made slight impressions around the flower design, fitting so the cut would be slightly over the WW paper edges. Then I carefully cut is out with a paper trimmer. Once that was completed, i glued it to the face of the card. You can easily attach it by the corners using brads if you chose to.

I cased this heart box form Leigh O’Brien, suinkandmore. I did alter mine because hs used a scalloped heart punch and I didn’t have one, I cut two 4 inch hearts from my Cricic. It is relatively easy to do and my club members enjoyed making it.

Winter Landscape

6 01 2009

I call this card Winter Landscape. I used Bashful Blue card stock with the first layer in Holiday Treasures then Whisper White for the face. Before beginning, I stamped the outer edges of the blue card stock with small snowflakes from the Merry and Bright set. I stamped the church and trees from the A Wish For Peace stamp set with Bashful Blue ink and then used Crystal Affects and Dazzling Diamonds for the snowy effect. I then took two of the Clear Square Buttons and glued the red patterned paper from Holiday Treasures with the white swirl to the back. The added two god bads and attached as a diamond shape.
