To a Wonderful Friend

Hello everyone...I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday. I have been playing a little bit today, trying to catch up with challenges for the next week and having fun with a new image by Jess Holland at Squigglefly. The image is called Wonderful Friend. I decided to make this into a holiday card using the snowflakes and silver foil paper. The card base is cut out using the largest of the Labels Eight Nestabilites cut on a folded piece of paper. I then took the next size down from there and cut out the other white layer and embossed it with Sizzix Snowflakes #3 embossing folder. To get the silver layer, I took that same die and put it on the paper and traced around the oustide of it to get a slightly larger shape...of course I had to cut this layer out by hand. I cut the Oval shape out of the white layer using the Ovals Nestabilities...and becasue I wanted my oval cut out on the silver layer to be slightly smaller, I traced on the inside of that oval nestie and cut it out by hand as well. IF I was lucky enough to have both the Ovals LG and Ovals SM I would probably not had to do all that hand work, but since I don't, I improvised! I decided the card was complete once I cut out a white and black snowflake using the MS snowflake punch...I used an 8MM Crystal Brad trimmed in silver from Pizzazz Aplenty for the center of my snowflake. Thanks tons for stopping by! I plan on doing some visiting today now that I feel "caught up"...plan on seeing me at your place a little later on today!
