Happy Winter

Hello again -

We visited a new church recently and there was a beautiful scrolled wood frame around the cross over the alter. As I sat listening to the sermon my mind started to wonder back to that beautiful frame. Yes, I know I should have been listening, but I kept thinking of how I could re-create that on a card.

Then the light bulb went off! Embossing folders and Nestabilities!

I embossed a piece of white-core blue cardstock with a snowflake embossing folder. Then I used two sizes of large circle Nesties to create the frame. After it was cut I lightly sanded the top to really let the snowflakes *pop*.

I cut a larger circle of white cardstock, edged it with a glue pen and glitter and then attached the frame with foam tape.

The cute little penguin is from Penguin Fun and the sentiment from Snowy Sayings both from Our Craft Lounge.

I can't wait to try this with other folders. Just think... leaves, polka dots, script, oh my. :-)

Thanks for stopping by!
