Let It Snow



Belated Merry Christmas wishes to all of you who celebrate Christmas! I hope you enjoyed a wonderful holiday with your loved ones!

I know "Let It Snow" are the last three words many of you want to hear, but here in Virginia we have yet to get anything more than a light dusting. I'm ready for some snow! Today's card is my sample for both Jen del Muro's Sketch for You To Try and for this week's challenge at Our Creative Corner, which is to use something clear on your card. Very little stamping today - just the "Let it Snow" sentiment (by Verve) on the tag. My clear element is a clear button on the snowflake/tag stack. At the bottom of the stack is a Bazzill chipboard snowflake. I coated it with some coarse Martha Stewart snow glitter, then topped it with a felt snowflake, the clear button and the tag. The rest is pretty straightforward, but if you have questions, just ask!

The rest of the SFYTT team's samples can be found here:

This card is stunning as usual Amy!! I seriously need to take a sewing lesson from you - how in the world do you always make such perfect straight-lined stitches??? Are you using a full-size sewing machine or one of the little mini craft machine? Thanks for the shout-out!!!
