Papertrey December Blog Hop Challenge

Hi,
A quick post between visitors and a Boxing Day party.  I realized we had placed most of our wrappings yesterday directly in a bag to be recycled, but I really wanted to play the challenge so I made a trip to the shed and brought the whole bag right in and found a few little goodies! Among them was a paper sleeve that had been wrapped around pyjamas for my sister with a row of snowflakes on it.  Perfect.  I simply die cut the snowflake with a circle nestie, cut a few more layers, placed the layered snowflake on a piece of ribbon that had been wrapped around a gift to my daughter, stamped a sentiment, and voila!  Card made.  Now off to party!

Cheers,
Val

Materials:
Paper:  PTI C/S White, Unknown Silver
Stamps:  PTI Mat Stack 1
Ink:  Colorbox Silver
Other:  Memory Box Woven Circle Die, ribbon and snowflake from Christmas wrappings

  8. Oh my goodness! So elegant. I love the softness of the white and silver combo. The snowflake is perfect atop the lacey die cut.
