Winter Wonderland...2S4Y66 47

Mona Pendleton | Monday, November 15, 2010 @ 8:00 AM | , ,

Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend! Time for another amazing sketch designed by Kazan for  2Sketches4You. CupCards To Go, who sells card kits to the public, is sponsoring this week's challenge and has provided the DT with various supplies to create our projects with. I used the following supplies to create this card: the DP, the white card base, the layered snowflake embellishment and button. Here's my take on Kazan's sketch:
I pulled out one of my favorite K&Company Holiday stickers, layered it on top of a square cut using a S4-128 Classic Squares SM die template and S4-295 Lacey Square die template. It's not so easy to see, but the white lacey square frame is made using white "non-shedding" glittery paper from Michael's Arts and Crafts that I mentioned the other day.  Admittedly, the vertical line down the left side of the card had me a little perplexed - so I put my sewing machine to good use and embroidered a strand of snowflakes :)
I have been lovin' making tags using a S4-246 Labels Eleven die template. I inked up the Holiday WISHES sentiment from Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Christmas then using a S4-246 Labels Eleven die template, I cut/embossed the image, inked the edges and attached to the bow.
That's all I have for today - thanks so much for visiting :) Please visit the 2Sketches4You site as well as all the 2S4Y DT gals for some awesome inspiration! Hope you join along in the fun :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Christmas
Die Templates and Machine: Spellbinders™Nestabilities® S4-246 Labels Eleven, S4-295 Lacey Squares, S4-128 Classic Squares SM, GC-001 Grand Calibur

Very sweet card Mona. The DP and pretty sticker go very well together. The snowflakes were a brilliant idea. That throws me a little too.
