Merry snowflakes

Hello, crafting friends!
Welcome to another fabulous challenge at Tic Tac Toe where we aim to inspire you eight different ways with our boards! Betty has come up with a beauty for this week:

I chose the middle column for my simple festive card:

I stamped the fun sentiment from The Greetery's Snowflake Soirée in bright red ink on a nice thick card base. The edges were masked off with sticky notes and blue ink blended inwards from the edges, creating a 'glow' effect in the centre around the sentiment. The sticky notes were removed to reveal a border.

Next came the die cutting! The Greetery's Halvsies Diamond die was used to cut a gorgeous deep blue/green plaid paper which was layered over the top of the ink blend to frame the bottom of the sentiment. I also die cut some snowflakes from coordinating card stock, embellished them with clear gems and used them to finish the card.
Okayy, now it's over to you! Which column or row will you choose? And don't forget you have the diagonal options too! Do hop over to the Tic Tac Toe blog to admire the gorgeous samples my teamies have made to inspire you. You'll find the Linky Tool at the bottom of the post so that you can link up your own creations with us. We are looking forward to seeing what you make!

I'm linking up at Watercooler Wednesday where Heidi is hosting the All About Occasions challenge; I'm also joining in with the fun at Festive Friday where they're celebrating Christmas Jumper Day! I've chosen Red Green and Plaid from the list.

Never mind card stock snowflakes, we had a taste of the real stuff earlier in the week! Not so much that we couldn't get out but just enough to get us in a festive mood. This was a very good thing for me as I've been so busy with the dogs that my Christmas preparations are very much behind!

On the other hand, Someone had other ideas about how I should be spending my time!!

Sending hugs,

  3. Your card is quite simply gorgeous Vicky I am afraid I would be so tempted to keep adding embellishments, lol, but I do so admire this style they always look so professional, I just had to laugh at your doggy in the snow he looks quite mischievous, lol.
