I went onto the Hero Arts blog and found this pretty little card using clear buttons. The only clear buttons that I have are some from my Mom's old button box. You adhere your clear buttons onto some pretty printed paper, allow to dry and cut out. I used SU! Whisper White and Night of Navy cardstock, Creamy Caramel ink (one of my favourites!) and large Christmas background stamp. A few pearls and sparkly gems to fill in between the buttons, a bit of Stickles in between and all around the tree. Cut your own 'snowbanks' and I added Stickles to them too. The Winter Wishes is a SU! rub-on.
The Angel of Winter is a digi image is from Crafts and Me and coloured with Copics. The little tree is a folded half circle. I cut the Angel oval with my CM cutters, the holly is cut from the same paper as the tree, Graphics 45. It's hard to see but I put some clear, Viva crackling paste around the card front and inked over with Distress Ink-Peeled Paint and of course had to add some green Stickles.
The SU! snowflake stamp on this one is Versamarked and embossed with Shimmering Leaves ep, I did a bead of gold Stickles down from the top to the snowflake and adhered a gold thread bow to it. The rub-on is SU!. These last two card fronts have been through the cuttlebug folders. I was originally trying to do 'white' cards, but I really had a hard time sticking to just white---as much as I love it!
Do any of you remember folding magazines like this (or am I showing my age here)? I folded two Oprah magazines to hold my cards--saw or read it somewhere. It's going to be my centerpiece this year and so far, just six cards, but eventually I think it will be full :)
Anyway :) thanks for coming to look!
