This is my card for the Splitcoaststampers 'Ways to Use it' Challenge WT407 - Resolution Check-in, where they want you to use those New Year resolutions today to craft one final project for 2012. One of my resolutions was to use my stash rather than adding to it and I am pleased to report that for the the most part, I have been a very good girl this year. One of my blogging friends, Katina Killey, recently remarked that when she first started making cards, all of her stash fitted into a shoebox - which then grew and grew until she finally got the Craft Room which she had always wanted and it is full of stuff - but what she actually uses would fit into a shoebox! Yes, I think many of us can relate to that! I know I certainly can! Details on the challenge are at this link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...a-t566294.html
Anyway, my card uses products that have been in my stash for quite some time - and the dp's are quite old. The gorgeous glittery snowflake was diecut from aqua glitter cardstock using my Big Shot and Spellbinder Snowflake die. The white centre on the snowflake is one of the dies from the Snowflake die set and was diecut from plain white cardstock. I added a Kaisercraft red rhinestone to the centre which mimics the dots in the designer paper then popped the snowflake up on dimensionals.
The sentiment was stamped onto the Little Yellow Bicycle blue lace designer paper with Sapphire Silk pigment ink and heat-set with satin pearl embossing powder.
That's it! Super-easy and I have mass produced some very similar ones by just changing the main image or altering the sentiment. Thanks for having a peek at my card. Please come and peek at my blog - this link will take you directly to my card: http://instead-of-ironing.blogspot.c...tmas-card.html
