WOW, Tuesday nite was the monthly get together for the stamping club of which I am a member, and the time flies by between meetings. Well each month we are given a challenge, We are given something to use in making a card or some other project.
We were given this:
Its a card that folds into a 5X5 square with half circles on each of the edges of the square.
I decided to make this a winter wonderland themed card.
Let me share some more pics.
First I cut circles using blue CS, and cut those in half and ran them thru an embossing folder that has snowflakes on it. I attached the half circles on both sides of the half circle card flaps. You will notice that I made a belly band and added 2 white punched snowflakes. That belly band holds the card closed.
Sliding the belly band off allows the card to be opened .........
to reveal a darling snowman. I used a beautiful die - Snow Corner, placing two of them in opposite corners.
I added a snowman and just added a bit of color to his scarf. Then the sentiment gets added and lastly I used a glue pen to add glittery falling snowflakes, a snowbank and some highlights to the snowman.
Notice those embossed half circles are on the inside of the card as well as the outside.
