Creative Card Crew - Challenge #34

Good morning and welcome to a new challenge with the Creative Card Crew. This week´s theme of SNOWFLAKES has been set by our lovely Claire and our sponsor Simon Says Stamp has generously donated a €20 Gift Certificate and Heidi will also pay the postage.

We are delighted to welcome Victoria to our Design Team, she is one awesome crafter so do please stop by her blog and leave her some love.



Anyhoo onto my card. I have heat embossed with red tinsel onto acetate - turned this over and applied H20´s, floor polish and a crumpled paper hankie! The stamp was a present from a very lovely lady, thank you Bev, it is hard to believe it is almost two years since you showed me this technique. I have followed my dear daughters sketch, thank you Marcea, I will definitely be using this again as it was such fun to work with. Papers are Christmas Wishes from DCWV and the snowflakes are from Shapeabilities.

I love this Nicola, I bet you had fun making it using that technique - my blogging buddy Sue taught me that one but I have to admit I don't like getting messy!

Well there you go, I never realised you and Marcea were mum and daughter!
