I've been making more C-word cards this weekend, and yes, they've got snowflakes on...again!
I've used the Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder on all of these, and they're all embellished with lovely bits and pieces from Crafty Treasures
I've used a couple of different ribbons here to tie the aqua and turquoise colours together.
Snowflakes are Spellbinders "Create a Flake 2" cut in two shades of glitter card, plus one cut with a punch - I can't remember who makes it, I'll edit if I do!
The oval sentiment, and the fabulous little snowflake charm on here are from Crafty Treasures/
For this card I've used my own sketch - you can find it HERE - please pop over and have a look, you might find some new inspiration for your card-making - I hope so, anyway!
This one is a gatefold card, I've embossed the four squares, then made a layered snowflake (Spellbinders flakes 1 & 2) to sit across the opening.
Flat backed pearls, oval sentiment from Creative Treasures
And then I got a little bit carried away! I think the whole C-word card making is starting to get to me, but I enjoyed making this so much! I try to keep my Christmas cards fairly flat so that I don't get clobbered for going over the miserly 0.5cm thickness the RM allows for regular postage prices, but this one won't fit the slot, that's for sure. I don't really care, because once in a while I have to make a C-word card just for the fun of it or I'd lose the will to live - or at least the love of making cards!
Actually it was that snowflake charm that made me do it, I just thought how pretty it would look in a "Shabby Chic" sort of arrangement and the next thing I knew I was making coiled roses from glittery paper and dabbing wired roses in turquoise inks.
Snowflakes, charm, sentiment, flat-backed pearls as before.
I think the wired roses came from Favour Factory a long time ago - I was looking for them on the net the other day, but the link doesn't work so I suppose they are no more.
The wide organza ribbon which I've scrunched into a little bow was part of an old Creative Treasures Flower Kit - it was the one with a turquoise and chocolate colour theme.
I did manage to make a few more yesterday so I'll pop those on tomorrow
That's it for today
Hope you remembered to change the clocks at the weekend - not looking forward to how early it's going to be dark this evening - or should I say this afternoon? Grim, eh?
