With the freezing cold weather we have at the moment I felt quite in the mood for a christmas card. As for New Year resolutions - not doing so well on the NBUS stash but at least I'm still on track with the old stash and snippets. I followed a sketch which was perfect for LOTV paper snippets with the strip of white card hiding the gap perfectly. The LOTV topper (matted onto a snippet of mirri-card) is several years old - I just ordered some of the LOTV art pads before christmas as they were special offer so thought I really should use up the last of the old toppers. I used snippets of card for stamping the snowflakes which are NBUS from the fabulous Tim Holtz stamp & die set I won in the Playground (the other bits are stamped and die-cut but yet to be added to a card). Finally a liberal helping of Stickles added to the image and snowflakes to give the winter sparkle.
Poor lighting here today so here's another that shows the sparkle a bit better
It really is such a shame that LOTV have discontinued the art pads and paper pads. I know so many people loved them as they were excellent quality and perfect for when you don't want to stamp.
