How strange for it to be getting dark so early .. .. it took me a while to remember yesterday that we had actually put the clocks back and we weren't due a downpour of rain.
Quite a windy day here today and I have had to re-peg my washing on the line a couple of times!!!
I am still in Christmas card mode and here is today's share
Image: Funstamps "FM131" Scribble Snowman
Sentiment: Penny Black "3535F" Snowflakes
Backing Paper: Papermania
Small snowflakes: Cuttlebug Die
Snowflake flower: Cuttlebug Dies, HobbyCraft Punch
Josy Rose: Gems
Ribbon from the stash box [but it has nearly all gone :-( ]
Crafty Notions: Double Sided Adhesive Sheet
Most of what I have done here is pretty straightforward but I will explain how I made my snowflake flower.
The first layer was made from acetate to which I applied a small piece of the double sided adhesive sheet. I then ran the acetate, with the backing attached, through the cuttlebug to cut out a large acetate snowflake that now had adhesive stuck to the back. (That made a real cool noise going through the cuttlebug!!!).
Once cut I removed the backing from the snowflake and then dipped the snowflake in glamour dust .. .. .. resulting in one very sparkly snowflake!!
I then just layered up the flower with another snowflake that had been cut using a medium sized Hobbycraft punch with inked edges and finished with a promarker coloured small cuttlebug snowflake to which I had glued the little gems.
I quite like the finished look.
So that is me for today. Back to the Christmas cards .. .. .. if I could make 150 today I would still need to make more tomorrow!!! LOL!!
Have a good evening everyone.
