Well it seems that snow is the theme in many parts of the country this week. In honor of the snow, I thought this photo of paper snowflakes would be perfect. This was the store window at Kate's Paperie in New York when I visited in December 2009. Tons of beautiful paper snowflakes!
I hope each of you have enjoyed a wonderful Christmas or other celebration. Mine was great - I was able to share the time with family and friends and reflect on how truly blessed we are. Starting to get back into creativity mode and hope to share some inspiration in the next couple of days. Until then stay warm!
Thought some of you may be in need of a quick card design. This one simply uses some printed paper, card stock, Spellbinder's Lacey Square die (one of my absolute favorites) Stamp It rubber stamp, ink and a rhinestone. Cut your printed paper to desired size, fold over about a 1/2 inch at the top and adhere over top edge of card. This also is a quick way to get some of the decor on the inside of the card. Stamp the greeting on a square of card stock. Die cut decorative panel, adhere to card front, wrap ribbon around card, tie a knot at left. Finish by layering greeting panel onto card sandwiching ribbon between. Voila!
If you are looking for gift-card holder inspiration, head over to CardMaker Magazines newsletter - my gift-card holder article just went out on December 13th. It has some tips and technique and a few design ideas. Hope you enjoy it!
Well, I guess I better get back to my Christmas preparations - best of luck with all of yours!
