Time once again for the girls to show
their makes for the Christmas Card Club.
The theme this time set by Christine is
'Let It Snow'
Another delve into my used Christmas cards stack
produced this card front.
Loads of the white stuff on here.
To me this was just begging to be made into a
At this point I should really tell you that me and
'Micro beads' do not get along!!
So, many remakes later here is the card I made.
I used an EF by Crafts -Too called 'Spots'
on a sheet of white card and then used my new
Xcut Shape Cutter System for
Rectangle and Square Tracks which
I found quite easy to use once I had mastered
the technique of turning corners.
I cut the card down to fit behind the frame
and used 3D oblong pads cut into strips to make
the casing to contain the micro beads.
(Those little perishers have a mind of their own).
I used a piece of acetate for the window and pearls
from my stash.
The sentiment was cut from another card front.
A blank card base was covered in coloured card stock
to match the Fawn and the whole of the shaker element
was attached to the front.
