Merry Christmas to you...November PTI Blog Hop 47

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, November 25, 2014 @ 11:39 AM | , , ,

Hi there! It's that time of month again ~ time for the PTI Blog Hop! This month's challenge the theme is snow
I made a trio of three similar Christmas cards featuring a snowflake shaker that I made using one of the beautiful PTI Damask Snowflake dies:
I filled each snowflake with shimmery snow like glitter and sequins:
All three sentiments are from the PTI Vintage Ornaments Stamp Set:
My goal was to keep them rather flat to cut down on postage cost yet keep them pretty:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Fusion challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ happy hopping!
Be Sweet ;)
