November Card Swap: Snowflakes and Christmas Trees

Hey everyone!  I'm back with my November Card Swap card.  I call it Snowflakes and Christmas trees.  Here it is!

Materials and Supplies
  • Christmas - snowflake
  • Create A Critter - tree
  • When It's Cold Outside - snowflakes
  • Mists - Perfect Pearls Mist in Perfect Pearl; Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist in Key Lime
  • Embossing Folder - 3 Dots by Sizzix
  • Stash - twine, ribbon, papers
I started with a Christmas Polka Dot paper that was soooo cute to me.  I feel it makes the perfect background accent.  I then cut 3 snowflakes in varying sizes.  I then sprayed all the cuts with the Perfect Pearls mist.  I really like the shimmer accent it gave the snowflakes.

NOTE:  Hands down (to me anyway), the When It's Cold Outside Cartridge is the best cart Provo Craft has ever put out!  If you do not have this cart you are missing a fabulous addition to your collection.  It is 25 beautifully created snowflakes, each with their own special design.  At first glance, they look like regular snowflakes.  But with a closer look, you see the details like Santa and his sleigh and a nativity scene.  So glad I have this one in my collection!

I cut out the Christmas trees and embossed each one with the 3 Dots folder.  I next sprayed these with the Radiant Rain mist.  I am falling in love with this brand !  The mist is sooo pretty.  I twisted a piece of red and white twine around the tree to mimic tinsel.  The tree is topped off with a piece of argyle Christmas ribbon.  I attached the tree with pop dots to to raise it up and give a little dimension to it. 

Here are a few of the cards on display.  I hope you like them and please let me know what you think!  Until next time...
