This is my card for Flourishes' challenge -- Snowy Delights and for the Free for All Friday challenge at stampTV that Tina has named Blue Christmas.
I used a Cuttlebug folder from a set called Winter Wonderland on glossy card stock and then ran my Distress Ink Faded Jeans pad over the paper, followed by buffing it with a paper towel, creating a glassy effect on the glossy paper. Had a small piece left over after cutting out my panel and stamped the Gina K. Designs sentiment from Festive Frame in Night of Navy ink. Cut it out with a Nestabilities rectangle die and framed it with a piece of white glittered card stock cut out with a scalloped rectangle die. Tied a little bow to go at the bottom and I was done!
Our card making group met at church this morning and I showed them the fan fold wreath technique and we all a made a card or two. Here are a couple that I made -- the sentiment is from Flourishes' set Christmas Wreath and the little angel stamp is from Layers of Color Angelic.
And now, just so you'll know that I was at the beach in Puerto Vallerta this past week, here is a picture that shows you some of the scenery that I was enjoying from my hotel window!
Keep warm to those of you who aren't fortunate enough to have temps in the low 80's here at 4:30 in the afternoon,
