Snowflakes in August!


The heat of the last few weeks has made me feel so lethargic and motivation is pretty low right now but since I'm hoping to go to Australia in October and I want to have a Christmas Card Making Fundraiser as soon as I get back, I have to get cracking with my kits!    It will also be a good chance to post my Aussie cards in Australia while I'm there - I think some of the cards I sent last Christmas arrived in March! 

This simple but effective drifting snow flake card is always well received and I know it will go down well in the kits!  I used a variety of snowflakes in the background for these cards.   The first one I forgot to stamp before I assembled it so I had to add a computer generated sentiment.  I created the sentiment with WordArt, made the text box brown and the writing white.  Then die cut it with a really small rectangle and applied glossy accents!

This one I remembered and so could use one of my many lovely Waltzing Mouse Christmas Stamps - so sad Waltzing Mouse Stamps closed down!

The main snowflake is from the Spellbinders Snowflakes 3 set but you can see it's been overlayed with another snowflake (also from Waltzing Mouse Stamps) the others are miscellaneous sets.   The distribution of snowflakes was much better on this second card - it pays to make more than one of a card so you can improve on it don't you think!

I'm entering my cards in the following challenges (the link is in the title under the images)!
