You make my heart melt

** 3/8/17 Top 3 at Christmas at Sweet Stampin’! **

Hi everyone! You’ll remember about a week ago I shared that I’m guesting for Jingle Belles this fortnight. My theme is Let the Flakes Fall Where They May and my challenge to you is to create a project that includes snow – snowflakes, snowmen, snowy landscape, etc. Well, I’m  back with a CAS mid-challenge project and it really doesn’t get any easier than this!

This adorable card was created with a scrap – the bottom portion of a 12 x 12 sheet that was leftover from a Christmas project. I cut it down, stamped the greeting and layered it on red cardstock.


I used a Marvy Uchida Snow marker on the snowflakes. First time I’ve used it and OMG – I love this stuff! You ‘write’ with it and then hit it with your heat tool, and watch it poof up! What fun! :D


I decorated the inside with the last remaining strip of that snowmen scrap (yep, I used it ALL), stamped the greeting with a snowflake and layered the panel on the red cardstock. I really am loving how this turned out! It always amazes me how something so simple can pack such a big punch! ;)


I’m thinking outside the box and will enter this into a few ‘love’ challenges! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
