Trees & Snowflakes

I have a couple of cards today, which are totally opposites (seems like I do that a lot...lol).

I used Lizzie Anne Designs LAD_WC91 for my first card. It isn't very apparent that I used the sketch, because I covered up the patterned paper separation with some Fleur De Lis die cuts. I also moved my circular element down a little...but I thought it worked better this way. The images are from the September Monthly Mix- Something to Crow About.

Stamps: Something to Crow About (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, White, Ripe Avocado (PTI), Green Tea Leaves (PTI)
Ink: Chocolate Chip & Old Olive Stampin' Write markers, Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Labels Four Nestabilities, Fleur De Lis Shapabilities Pendants, 1/2 & 5/8 inch circle punches, New Leaf Vintage Button (PTI), Glue Dots, Scotch Foam Tape

Now...the story of my snowflake card. When my Fleur De Lis Pendant dies first arrived...I grabbed whatever paper I had around. For some reason, Bravo Burgundy was it. So...I tried my dies out. I cut two of them. There they sat for the next couple of weeks or so. Yesterday, I decided to layer them up with foam tape (I trimmed off some of the edging on one of them). I die cut a couple of smaller pendants, one in white and another in Bravo Burgundy. I layered those on the larger pendant, and put them together on this card. The patterned paper is Figgy (BasicGrey). I used my Corner Chomper for the corners. No stamping, but still pretty.


Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a good week!!
Thanks for visiting!
