today i have card number three from my round of papercrafts wcmd swaps hosted by the pc pros--the host, none other than nichole heady; the swap, versatile verses. both of the other swaps featured snowflake serenade by papertrey ink, so i felt compelled to use it again here--duh, she designed it! it's new and has been sitting on my desk *and* the snowflakes are the perfect backdrop for christmas! the idea was to create a card with a verse from a favorite holiday song or poem. i love all christmas music, so it was hard to choose, but finally, inspired by the snowflakes, i went with the opening verse from winter wonderland. it pretty much doesn't snow here in new orleans, but we had an actual white christmas a few years ago and it was beautiful and so much fun!
in addition to snowflake serenade, i used take a bough for the branch and ornament. to add snow to my scene i printed the verse on white cardstock, trimmed the bottom and width and tore the top edge, adding stardust stickles along the tear to make it glisten. i also added snow to the branch with liquid applique, dipped into clear glitter while wet, before heating. the ornament is stamped on pink for a bit of extra color and punched with a small circle punch--of course, it needed shimmer too, so i ran it through my xyron sticker maker on the top side and pushed it into the glitter before adhering it to the card. i love sparkle and shine!
have a great day!
