Now I do so love a challenge and I have also set myself the added challenge of coming up with 12 ideas to make a different card each time. I might even manage a Bakers Dozen so without further ado this is what I pulled from my stash to make the first card.
Red card with a circle already cut from it in my stash.
Promarkers, Nesting dies to cut 3 circles, small black pearls
Strip of white card , 4 corners (the waste from a die cut)
4 black/white brads and a Christmas Britannia word die.
Plus the item I have a love/hate relationship with, Acetate.
Plus the gloves needed to stay sane with which of course I am!!
And this is what I made.
Please meet Snippy the Snowman.
I also pulled out a small piece of raffia in red for his hat trim
and a larger piece in yellow for his scarf.
I used the four discarded corners from a die cut to decorate the inside of the card
(You do all keep your pieces that fall out of the die when you have cut it out don't you!!)
