I do like pictures of snow, and it looks pretty while it’s snowing. I LOVE driving in it at night when the snowflakes reflect off my headlights and it looks like I’m hurtling through hyperspace and the snowflakes are really stars flying past me!! (Yes, I”m a sci-fi lover!)
Anyway, the challenge this time over at Cut it Up is to make a project that is mostly white with a little bit of one other color. I like to make note cards for my aunt for Christmas. Months ago, I had seen this sketch on the Clean and Simple Stamping sketch blog, loved it and saved it to my computer. I decided now was the time to make them!
I used American Typewriter font on my new Silhouette (still so excited!) The tiny snowflake inside the Os are an element on an ornament that the Silhouette store gave as a freebie back in December. The yellow paper is from the Route 66 Recollections paper pack, a Christmas gift from my son. (My family knows what I like! My daughter got me paper, too!! 🙂 )
The twine is Lemon Tart Trendy Twine and the embossing folder is from Cuttlebug. I apparently didn’t write the name of it on the folder like I usually do, and can’t find it on the internet, so I can’t tell you the name of the embossing folder, but it’s one I really like. The snowflakes are so delicate!
For the closure, I used a “recycled” business card magnet, hidden under the paper. All you do is snip off two pieces (mine were about half an inch thick), glue or tape one to the underside of the flap, place the second magnet ON the first one, put your glue or tape on the second magnet, and close the box. The second magnet will land right where it’s supposed to to make the box close right. Then cover with paper to hide it. That’s it!
