Day 8 - Here Comes Suzy Snowflake...

Oh, that's another Christmas song!  Meanwhile, we have been busy making snowflakes for our Twelve Days of Crafting Christmas Song...
On the FIFTH day of Christmas, my crafter made for me, FIVE shiny SNOWFLAKES!!! (4 goody bags, the 3-fold card, 2 Christmas cards, and that pretty Christmas ornament to hang)…

Linda's cards

So here are 5 Snowflakes punched out of very pretty, heavy shiny cardstock; green holly leaves and red rhinestones to set it all off.  5 more cards for my card box........very easily done using the Spellbinders Snowflake Pendant set from 2010, which I recently found on sale online.

Pat's Album Cover
 Another snowflake-induced project comes from Pat, whose giving us a sneak peek of her Winter Acrylic Album that she's making for a swap.  This is the front cover of the album.  The recipient told her to surprise her with something that "will make her heart sing" so she took the words as her theme for the album.  Not only has she drenched the cover in Diamond glitter from Stampin Up for the crystal snowflake effect, but she added a small pper doily glitzed with Stickles and a few punched snowflakes to set the tone of her album.  She inked all the cardstock alphas in the crystal ice blues and frosty evergreen colors of winter.

There's so much that you can do with snowflakes---punched, diecut, snipped with scissor out of paper, stickers, vellum---no matter what they're maded of, make something with them!  And keep on crafting!
