Brrrr. . .

I had so much fun making this card!  I love it when I can use items I already have in a new way! And I promise, only a few more winter cards :)

What I Used to Make my Card:
Square White Card Base
Premade Background Paper {made with Oxide Inks}
Simon Says Stamp Sparkling Snowflake Breeze die, #S528
Elizabeth Craft Designs Brrrr die, #1228 {not on the site but available}
Stickles in Star Dust

I began this card by using the snowflakes die and cutting a piece of white card with it.  At the time I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do, but I liked the look of the die as a background.  I found a background I had already made with Distress Oxide Inks and I trimmed that down to fit behind the panel I had cut.  I wanted a sentiment that was wintery but not pertaining to a holiday and while searching through my dies I came across this one.  I cut it out of the same premade background card, added the stickles, and attached that to the card.

Easy and impressive, at least I think so.  I am going to use this technique on more cards,  I think it is another way to stretch the supplies I have and, while it isn't really innovative, it is something I hadn't done in ages. 

Very soon I will be having a giveaway on my Instagram account so if you are a part of that social media, I urge you to begin following me; don't worry, I will happily follow you back!  If you aren't yet on Instagram, well, you don't know what you are missing!  There is more content, crafters, ideas, and things to inspire you than anywhere else I have seen.  And you can use your computer!  Just go to and make an account.  

I hope this has inspired you to take out some of those neglected dies {and trust me, it's difficult when there are SO many cool designs coming out each quarter!} and give them another try.  Thank you so much, Christi
