4 Papers 3 Snowflakes and 1 Snowman Challenge

This card I did for the Christmasblogchallenge recipe was 4 papers, 3 snow flakes and
1 snowman or woman. I used a red card base. the 4 papers I used were a plain red
paper, cut with a friskars border punch (and applied around the edges), a christmas ornament print (top 3/4) a chrismas
theme print with similar colors at bottom and a strip of a red and white "Joy" print in between. I mixed up some perfect pearls in a small bottle and sprayed over the whole card adding tons of shimmer.

I cut the snowman from the christmas theme print that I also
used at the bottom 1/4 of card. I glued it to some red cardstock to add thickness and cut it out again.
I added extreme glitter paint to the whole thing and popped it up with stampin up dimentionals.

I stamped the greeting in green then heat embossed it.

I stamped 3 snowflakes in green and heat embossed them as well.

I added a red Prima poinsettia flower with a green rhinestone in the center to lower right corner.

I added a small red rhinestone to each corner.

How Sentimental Card Challenge

I made this 6x6 card for the onestopcraftchallenge How sentimental Challenge. I used 2 different patterns on the top of the card. I used a friskar punch to punch out a design in both parts and put a matching ribbon across the seam.


I stamped my sentiment on a green card then a pink one. I popped it up
with dimentionals and placed a green rhinestone on it.

Can you see the green showing through the punched design
on the print?

I finished with some Prima flowers with rhinestone centers.

I had some leftover bits so I made another version

Used a hotter pink on this one.

You can really see that friskar punch design on this one.

Love those Prima Flowers!
