Merry Christmas



One more week of work...and then I'm off for Christmas/New Year's week. I'm looking forward to the week off to spend lots of time with family.  But before I'm off, I needed a card for a male co-worker to provide him with a thank you and a gift card to one of his favorite book stores.  So...a bit more masculine was in order. At first I was going to stamp snowflakes, but then decided on using a snowflake die (Memory Box - Snowflake Collage) to mimic the images on the CAS(e) this Sketch inspiration.  Finished it off for with a tag for the sentiment and a die cut around the edge.  Have to say I'm pretty pleased with the end result!  I'm also adding this to the challenge over at Inkspirational for neutrals only.

Lynn, I had to come in for a really close close-up! How are these die cuts, they look as if they have become one with the card base they're so perfect! Beautiful representation of our Sketch!

Beautiful, soft, sweet snowflakes. I love your use of a banner here. Thanks for playing along with this CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

No wonder you wanted to use dies, Lynn. Those snowflake dies are intricate and gorgeous. I can just see all the little leftover pieces on your desk. ;)

Who makes those dies - fabulous snowflakes and a wonderful card :) I have two days left to work and then 11 off - can't wait!! Jammie days, puzzle making, reading, hanging as a family - priceless!

This is really stunning Lynn and such a great idea to use a die cut instead of a stamp. Goodness all these dies! This would be great for our 'neutrals' challenge at Inkspitational if you have time to pop by

What a clever take for a masculine card, kraft was such a super wise choice and I need to remember this!

Lynn, your 'wintry wonderland' card is absolutely gorgeous...oops, I mean 'handsome and striking' *grin*! Those snowflakes...swooning inducing, especially set atop the kraft! I know your co-worker adored this, as do I! Thank you for sharing this gem in the Inkspirational gallery! Happy New Year!
