Thanks "snow" much
I'm having a ball with Jennifer Wuthrich's challenge to make a card a day in Jan. Click HERE to see her lovely card. This is the card for day 4 (I did finish it yesterday but didn't take photos 'til today. DH took me computer shopping, out to eat, and to a movie so it's a miracle I got it done at all. LOL). Not only has Jen inspired me to keep crafting (after a bit of a hiatus during the holidays) but also with the sentiment for this card. It also just happened to fit the bill for Carla's challenge on the Cricut message board to make a card based on a monogram or in the shape of a monogram. WooHoo! I used the roly poly feature on the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge for all of the letters. The "T" I tweaked a bit to make it a bit fatter and welded them to the snowflake shadows from Accent Essentials. The blue card stock is Bazzill and has a gorgeous iridescence. I cut another lighter blue "T" and cuttled it using the snowflakes folder. The white snowflakes and the small letters are flocked and popped for dimension. "Snow Much" is done with pastel blue Alpha Beads and I added mini pompoms for fun. Seems like I can't do a card without adhesive beads so of course they found there way here too. Last but not least is a sparkle tulle bow attached with a snowflake brad. Now I'm off to work on day 5. Hugs!
