Let It Snow

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  Being a brand new month it is time to introduce a new challenge hostess to you which is Raquel Mason.

Apparently Labor Day is here! When Raquel was growing up in the North,  there was a saying ... "Don't wear white after Labor Day". Make an all white card. You can add black, tan or another color as long as white is the predominant color.

For my card today I decided to create a pop up card using the Anita Frames Pop Up die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. This time round I decided to flip the pop up on it's side which was inspired by a card created by Karen Aicken a little while ago, you can find her card on her blog here.

To decorate the top and bottom edges of the card I used a couple of Header Fold dies from Tonic Studios which I die cut from white cardstock that had Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the front and then covered with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.

I also decorated the centre pop up panel and centre labels using the glitter.

As you can see to decorate the centre pop up labels I used the Snowman die which I kept just black and white (we were allowed to add one other color if needed) and also added the sentiment from the Winter Sentiments Clear Stamp set.

I also added Transparent/Silver Glitter Dots Peel Off Stickers to the snow flurries and stars on the top and bottom headers.

For the front of my card I added another glittered header piece for the bottom edge of the card. I also added A Way with Words "Merry Christmas" which was die cut from White Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz which was layered onto ovals from the Stitched Ovals and Dotted Scallop Ovals die set.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
