Here in the NorthEast, we've had our first 'cold' week of the Winter. I didn't reach for my cup of hot chocolate though, instead, I grabbed my newest set of Pink by Design Stamps (Snowflakes) and set out to make a 'brrrthday' card for my nephew:
My crafting resolutions this year are to 1.) Use every cartridge I own at least once, 2.) Use as much as I can from my stash, and 3.) Make 2 or more of the same card at a time, so I have a supply built up. Sound familiar?
For this card, I used the new "Snow Day" cartridge for the first time - it's really cute! I distressed the edges of the snowball, stickled them, added a little shine to the boy's snowsuit and mounted him using pop-dots. All of these supplies were from my stash. 1 cartridge down, (yikes... too many to count...) to go!
