I am so excited to show off this card, I think it turned out super cute and I have to thank Karen Ostergard , this months Crazy4Challenges host for coming up with this weeks challenge as I don’t think I would have thought to make this card without it. So you are probably wondering, what is this weeks challenge and it is…..BBRRRR. it’s cold outside in most of the Northern Hemisphere or it’s quite warm in the Southern Hemisphere. Do a winter themed card if you live in the north and a summer card themed card if you live in the south. Well I live in the North so winter card it is, but at first I was a little stumped as Christmas just past and I didn’t want to make a card that looked to Christmasy. Then I saw a Surprise Ball Valentine video from Karen Burniston that gave me the idea to make this fun snowman, and here it is.

I finally got my Christmas cards done (yay me 50 of them) so I finally get to play with this fun Photo Collage Pop up die set (early Christmas present 🙂 I also had to make a card for this week’s Crazy4Challenges challenge. This week’s challenge was to use my favourite Christmas stamp set and or Christmas die set to create a Christmas card. Hhmmmm a favorite was so hard to pick. I have always loved snowflake stamps and over the last 13ish years I have accumulated a few so I picked out one that was a little larger than the rest and went with it, and I also thought snowflakes would work well on the pop-up mechanism, so this is the card I came up with.

I love shaker cards, this one is a little different. Instead of having a large shaker window, I have smaller snowflake sized windows, and the window shapes are cut through the front and middle pf the card with the shaker bits added to the very back panel.

I was going through some old photos and I came across this one. This is a card that I made years ago, back when you actually had to mail in your cards to Stampin’Up when you entered one of their challenges. I mailed this one off, I was sad to see it go as it was very pretty in person, and No I didn’t win the monthly challenge 😦
