I am thrilled to be a guest at the CAS on Friday challenge which starts today! The challenge is "snow". When I sat down to make this card, I had just gotten the sentiment die so I had a starting point!
This card took a hard left turn halfway through making it. I actually got the die to use for my young nieces and that was the intent when I started this card. But after I pulled out bright colors and glitter paper and bling - I realized I couldn't do a CAS card for my nieces. Their cards need to be full of color. But as I was staring at the die, I started to realize that this was the message that I wanted to send to both of my 21+ year old sons. I usually go funny for them, but this year is different.
I switched directions and found a wintery plaid. I cut the die in white and in gray - then layered with the gray slightly showing as a shadow. I trimmed out the "O" in "SNOW" and added a snowflake and a dapper little snowman. As much as I love dies, I'm going to have to start re-thinking which dies I buy. I recently picked the snowman set up on sale at Hobby Lobby and I do love it. But those itty-bitty pieces are becoming more and more difficult to see and to handle as the years go by!!
"Snow Much Love" to each of you! I hope my American friends are having a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday - even while social distancing!!
