Walking in a Winter Wonderland

The title really should have been "all i want for christmas is my two front teeth" lol. I have used the pretty snowflake paper from this fab Echo Park christmas kit from Jessica Sprague. I love echo park papers and having them on tap is even better. Now the papers may have been freshly printed but the card and image have been hanging around for a while. 

This is a very small card, just perfect for Christmas and even better for using up small bits of left over card. I already had the cardstock on my desk after finishing a card that you will see later so it seemed that using it was a better option than putting it into my snippet draw. I cut the snowflake on my cricut, although hubbie did comment that he had never seen a red snowflake, I said it is elusive a bit like yellow snow only rarer.

I also used Flowersoft on this card, I bought this ages ago and have never been brave enough to use it, it does go absolutely everywhere too but it does look like snow and I find myself touching it to make sure lol.



Ingredients:
Paper: "All I want for Christmas" Echo Park Digi
Cardstock: "Real Red" Stampin Up
Brad: Stash
Snow: Flowersoft 'Polar White"

Great card Amanda. Love the snowman and just ignore Hubby about red snowflakes. Tell him it is an "arty" thing ...bit like Estate Agents' "artistic licence"!
Top tip with regard to yellow snow...don't eat it!
LOL!
