Snowflakes and snowmen in March!

I can't believe it's getting on for 1am already!  I just wanted to finish my blogging off before I get some much needed shut eye.

Today I have been continuing with the pop-up box cards, although this time I decided to make a couple of Christmas ones ready for the end of the year! I'm going on the theory that if I make a couple a month then I won't have as many to do come winter time!


I have already posted a blog entry about the first of these cards. The second card I made using white cardstock as the base of the box and covered with Christmas themed papers from my stash. 





I cut more flowers from matching paper using the same dies as mentioned in yesterday's blog post. I also cut more flourishes and tags using ,the same dies as yesterday. 

I drew a simple snowman and top hat freehand. I cut 2 of each of these from white and black cardstock. I used tiny nail art black gems for the eyes and buttons.

I finished off by adding a couple of silver metal star charms and some padded snowflake embellishments from my stash.

Thankyou for stopping by, if you haven't done so already, do please pop back to my home page and check out today's other blog post featuring another Christmas box card.

Again I would like to finish with a quote from one of my favourite YouTubers, Kelly Donovan. This simple statement always resonates with me each time Kelly finishes one of her wonderful videos with it.
