Firstly I just wanted to thank everyone for the well wishes. I am feeling much better now.
The latest Dream Valley Challenge was creating a non-traditional Christmas card, and it certainly was a challenge, especially not using the traditional green and red colours.
I saw this card at the Hero Arts site, http://heroarts.com/blogs/club/2011/12/01/new-december-contest-november-round-2-winners/ and I was inspired.
I then cut a piece of acrylic packaging to size and ran it through my Big Shot with an embossing folder with snowflakes on it. This was adhered over the distressed cardstock using small silver brads. I highlighted some of the snowflakes with Diamond Stickles and popped some diamantes into the centres.
I cut out a flourish from a Tim Holtz die using kraft paper and finished it off with a piece of chiffon ribbon and a tag.
