Through the snow...to the baubles

Hi guys,

I have another Christmas card to share with you today (I might be making too many and not enough birthday cards at this rate!)


I saw some masks from Crafter's Companion, but I do not have any - so I decided to make my own. The obvious way to this would be to stamp the paper - then die-cut the image and remove yes?? Well guess what idiot here did...yup, cut out the die first, then used it as a mask to stamp the rest of the paper!! Doh. I used a background stamp that was free with a magazine with red, green, gold and silver inks to create the layers of snowflakes. I then stuck the pieces down onto the cream card base. Finally I stamped the sentiment in gold to the bottom of the bauble, added some bronze glitter ribbon and a bow down the side...and because I couldn't find my thin double sided tape I added silver glitter to the exposed tape between the two glitter ribbons :). I really, really need some more hours in the day to finish sorting my craft room. I have too many Christmas gifts to make to be able to commit at the moment, and so my stuff is spread out across the floor currently haha.
