Only four more weeks till Christmas......eeeekk!! I am no where near prepared and certainly haven't made enough Christmas cards yet, so our new challenge theme this week at TIME OUT will certainly help me! We want you to be inspired by the words:
SNOWFLAKES ARE WINTER'S BUTTERFLIES
Its such a pretty way to look at them, and not that I've seen any snowflakes in real life but the one's I've seen in movies seem to sometimes have a mind of their own as they float down to earth. But you can also be inspired by any of these words or the sentence itself, its totally up to you!!
Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the always creative Ashwini from Experiments with Card Making Etc. I'm sure you will have seen her around blogland, her designs are incredible and she is often the winner of many challenges, so its lovely to have her with us!!
I had all sorts of ideas on how to use some snowflakes on my card but each one of them failed. So I got back to basics and created my design around one beautiful snowflake:
I die-cut the snowflake twice, glued them together and then glued it to a circle, also die-cut from white CS. I used a slightly larger circle die to cut from a piece of mint glitter CS and adhered it to the card front. The snowflake was then popped up on foam tape and the sentiment stamped in black. Simple and clean!
The glitter CS is from DCWV 'Glitzy Pastels'. The snowflake die is from CAS-ual Fridays, as well as the sentiment stamp from the set 'Must Love Snow'. The circle dies are from Couture Creations.
I have four challenges I would like to enter:
The Challenge # 52
AAA Cards Challenge # 53 (Anything Goes)
Simply Create Too Challenge # 99 (Snow/Use Mostly White)
Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes)
You have two weeks to enter your projects to the TIME OUT Challenge. The rest of the Design Team have some beautiful cards on the blog to inspire you. I hope you have the time to join us and I can't wait to see what you come up with!!
