So here is the card:
For the card base I used some Pear Pizazz. Next I cut the circle from the card using the wonderful Circle Framelits and embossed the rest of the front piece with the On Point EF. I stamped the trees ( including masking) onto the cut out circle from the front. The front Frame is cut from Silver Glimmer paper and is placed over some acetate sheet also cut with the handy circles :-)
To create the shaken snow I used the fabulous confetti Stars punch on all my Silver Glimmer scraps of card I'd kept in the packet - I knew I'd find a use for them one day :-)
To hold the stars inside the window I used the Shaker Card adhesive rings. The circle here is bigger than the largest frame so I just cut into the largest circle and removed the backing tape and then you can create whatever shape you need - here a larger circle - so I used two rings and joined them together which is easily done. Then I tipped my confetti stars on top of the Trees before lining up the card front and finishing off by placing the Glimmer frame over the top.
Even the greeting is from the same stamp set - I am in love with it already, can't you tell? LOL! And I stamped this one and then used the Itty Bitty Banners Frameits to cut it out. I also cut a 1" Pear Pizzazz circle and decided to emboss that too with the On Point EF although its hard to see. And finally, to complete the silver theme - a little Silver Twine to wrap around the top and a little bow.
When I look at redoing this card I will make a coupe of changes - move the frame so it sits more forward than back…and stamp the second tree further back so it doesn't need so much masking :-) What do you think?

And this evening I made a little journey to visit my good friend Katerina - so lovely to see her and the family and have a quackish catch up :-) We could've talked for many more hours I am sure but it had been a long day for both of us. It was so lovely to be able to see some of her Show and Tell - she is a very talented scrap booker! Always beautiful mixes of texture and colour :-) You can see a sample of her work here where she had decorated a gorgeous little paper bag to give me!
Isn't it gorgeous!! And so is the inside - a stamp set she managed to find on Ebay that I had been looking for - the retired (Must Have for dog lovers!) D is for Dog! We have been waiting for this to come up for ages and finally it is here :-) So such a happy package it is! And just in time as will be needing to make a card to thank Sally's surgeon when she goes back for suture removal from her biopsy later this week.
Here, the bag was plain to start with but Katerina has stamped it with the chevrons from the Work of Art in white . And while I don't recognise these beautiful papers that the banners were made from and layered so beautifully. I do the butterflies - a retired SU punch and and the Beautiful Wings Dies :-) so beautiful together !!Such a special way to dress up such a wonderful package! Thank you so much Katerina!
Happy stamping until next time,
