SC192 Warm Winter Wishes...


Happy Wednesday...

Before I start with my card, I have to announce the winner on the "Odd Shape Card" Challenge. Congratulations Busybetty, please email me your address so I can get your card out to you. jdmeyer6@sbcglobal.net


I wanted to post a project yesterday but I was having problems with the computer and since it was so nice out we spent the day outside. When we got back, the computer was fixed but I was not in the mood to finish the project I started.

Before going to bed, I stopped by Splitcoast to see if the Sketch Challenge was posted. Guess what... It was and I got right to it! This card is for this week's Sketch Challenge "SC192"Since I promised a card using the NEW Cuttlebug embossing folders, I whipped out the NEW Winter House folder and got right to the challenge.

For the background, I used the embossing folder Snowflakes. Instead of a straight line on the sketch I curved the two pieces using the Creative Memories decorative trimmer. To give the card the finishing touch, I added some stitching using my Janome sewing machine.


Here is the recipe ~ Stamps: Holiday & Wishes Paper: Baja Breeze, Whisper White Ink: Craft White, Baja Breeze Accessories: Cuttlebug - Winter House & Snowflakes - Cut At Home, Janome Sewing Machine, Twine, Nestabilities Tag - Cut At Home.


Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments!
