A Freshly Made Snowflake Tied Up With String


I am still playing with snowflakes and Frosted paper from Close to My Heart.  The theme of the second Heart 2 Heart challenge of the month is "Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With String," so I use some of the embellishments including the tinsel laced string from the Workshops on the Go Frosted Cardmaking Kit along with this Freshly Made Sketch to make a card.

I layered a Martha Stewart punch over a snowflake cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and embellished it with a brad from the retired Mistletoe Assortment and some of the glitter sparkles (which are a lot more sparkly than they appear in the photo) from the WOTG before popping it up with foam tape.  I love shopping the While Supplies Last section from Close to My Heart!  I bought six packages of the Mistletoe Assortment for something like $2.50 each and have gotten a lot of use from them since.

Thank you for stopping by!  Now please head on over to Freshly Made Sketches and Heart 2 Heart to see some more cool projects.  Until next time, Hansi
