Snowflakes are Winters Kisses

The prompt at Day 5 of Beccy's Place Month long holiday challenge is E. 

I have chosen E for embellishments.

The card started off with the blue panel background which is from my scraps box and recycled from a card I have received.

I have added this to a silver DL size card blank and added a trim of self adhesive ribbon to frame it.

The snowman is an embellished  cardstock sticker. One of those that I have hoarded for years as it is 'too nice to use'. I know we all have stash like that.... go on admit it!

The sentiment is a diecut tag and I have added a gem to cover the hole up.

Finally I have added an assortment of snowflake and gem embellishments. There are a lot of different textures in this card with the pompom hat, pipe cleaner arms and fuzzy snowflakes.

Card Details :-

Size - DL
Embellishments - 3D cardstock sticker, various snowflakes & gems

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-


  1. Yes, yes! And not only card making stash Mandy. I also have beautiful pieces of fabric that I've kept for years because it's so pretty... and I don't even sew! I think it's a great idea to find one of those hoarded treasures every now and then and actually use it on a card. Good on you for doing just that! I'm sure whoever receives this will love all the different elements you added. Awesome job!
