Heartfelt Winter Wishes

Good evening! Remember the title of my last post? "Try it, you might like it"? Well, I did try it and I did like it! I liked it so much that I made another shaker card for this week's Design 2 Delight & Double Delight challenges! The real challenge was to make your own embellishments, so I used a snowflake nestabilities to punch out these snowflakes and used one to look like a charm below my bow. I used Faith's free image of the week (the snowman & sentiment) and put him inside of a snowglobe digi that I found at Bird's Cards. I got this snowman in snowglobe idea from the Double Delights Challenge blog (Kathy put hers in a snowglobe, too!) and I used Kristine's idea of rubbing 2 pieces of styrofoam together to create "snow" to put inside the snowglobe (I even put a little on the outside). These ladies at Double Delights are a barrel full of awesome inspiration & ideas! I just love 'em both incredibly! The dp I used is by the Paper Studios and I also used stickles on the snowflakes to give them some sparkle. Enjoy!
