Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

I personally don't hope for snow. However, it's inevitable. I'm in Illinois . . . we'll get snow! If we could have it only on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, that would be great! I don't mind the cold that much, but I don't really like having snow. Anyway, I don't think most people feel that way, so I embraced that thought, and created "Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!" cards! These are for the craft fair.


This was the first one I created. I just love the Cuttlebug large embossing folders! The sentiment was done on the computer. The foam snowflakes were a HUGE bargain that I got at a rubber stamp flea market. I got a big bag, and I think they were only 50 cents! I have white, light blue, and dark blue. I love them! I added a beautiful sheer white ribbon around the card front, and I added some rhinestones to the snowflake. I ticket punched the card front.


My youngest daughter didn't particarly care for the white on white with the ribbon and the card front, so I had a light bulb moment, and I chalked the ribbon on the next one. The chalk worked well! I like the effect!


Here's the chalked one by itself. It's such a soft look, and the ribbon really pops. I like the white on white . . . I think it's elegant!


I usually create four cards, so here they are. The other two have different ribbons. I also switched things around a little. On two I put the sentiment on the top, and on the other two I put the sentiment on the bottom. I like making each one unique!

Thanks for stopping by!
