On a roll!

Hi all,

On a roll right now! Actually, I'm in the middle of 3 different cards right now (you know the whole "while that's drying I'll just work on this idea" thing...) but I just finished one that kinda just came together while browsing my blog feed this morning.

First, there was the day 14 challenge at Beccy's Place, which asked us to use buttons on a Christmas card. With that forming ideas in my head, I next visited my blog friend Lisa, who had just made a lovely Christmas card with faux washi tape. This reminded me of the large plastic envelope full of washi tape I have and have yet to use. Buttons and washi tape were starting to mingle...
And finally, I saw that the new challenge over at Papertake weekly was "snow and ice", which meant snowflakes/blue etc.

Take all those ideas, throw them in a pot and stir them for a couple of hours, and this is the result:

Something a little different from my usual. Lots of white space makes me nervous! Though I LOVE seeing other people's CAS cards, I can't seem to get on with white myself! So therefore couldn't resist adding a few "ice crystals" in the corners, lol.

The washi tape is Dovecraft "Cupcake Boutique", and the tree die recently came free with a magazine. The top layer of white card came pre-embossed with snowflakes.

Hope you're all having a fabulous day. I'll be back later with the other cards I'm working on!

It's the c&p lady, fingers crossed things will get back to normal in a few weeks, but promise I have still taken a good look at today's lovely work.

This is a fabulous card Sammy, lovely CAS design and the blue and white is a brilliant combination.

All your ideas came together to make a beautiful card Sammy! I love the colour scheme... blue and white is so clean and pretty and goes so well with anything snowy. Great use of the buttons too.

I have this die but haven't got round to playing with it yet! It looks lovely on your elegant card and the white embossed background is fab :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
