OCC Challenge - Let it Snow!!!

Saturday, December 19, 2009

Good Morning! I'm here bright and early with another challenge from Our Creative Corner. This week the theme is "Let it Snow" and we incorporating snow and snowflakes into out cards. My card incorporated both, using green snowflakes to create a Christmas tree and I used white vellum to create a snowy ground. I tore the vellum to leave a jagged edge and then folded the vellum around to the underside of the card to adhere it. This way you don't see any glue through the vellum. I took some stickles and traced the jagged edges to give a more snowy effect.

The star on my tree also comes from the snowflake punch. I just tore off some of the snowflake "arms". I love how the clear rhinestones look like ornaments.
I hope you have a great weekend and get everything crossed off your to-do list. I know mine is rather daunting. Now, head on over to Our Creative Corner and check out what the rest of the design team created using snow and snowflakes. I hope you get the opportunity to play along.

Dana, what a great idea for a Christmas tree! It looks fabulous with the punched snowflakes and rhinestones. The vellum snowdrifts are so clever and so pretty!

Very cute tree - the snowflake punch makes a wonderful tree. And I really like your snowy 'hills' that the tree is sitting on.

Hey there...I know you!!! :) I was browsing SCS. I came across this card and opened the thumbnail because it caught my eye (what a beauty) and recognized your avatar. If you don't remember, I went to high school with you (maiden name Yauch). So fun to discover that one of my classmates has a blog too--especially with the same CAS style! Great blog Dana!
