This card was made for Sketch Challenge 365 at SCS. The verse is a Plain Jane stamp from Verve Stamps. I used a little bit of everything for this card; Darice Butterfly embossing folder, SU Butterfly Embosslit, Flourish cut with the Cameo, Swiss Dots embossing folder, and the feather is from Lifestyle Crafts. Thanks for stopping by!

I made a snowflake card that doubles as an ornament. Kind of cool, eh? Lettering Delights has a cool snowflake ornament in their Holiday Gift Giving svg set. Using the Silhouette Cameo, I cut two sets of the same one. One I didn’t embellish, the other I added some texture, dimension, and glitter.
On the back of one of the snowflakes, I used double sided tape on top half of the snowflake. It may be hard to see in the picture, but the tape is on the top five points.
This is what the snowflake looked like after I adhered them together, with only the top half taped together.
Then I used patterned paper (K&Co) and attached another piece of patterned paper to form a pocket. Because this patterned paper blended so well together, I put a piece of white card stock in it so you could see. I added some silver cord and slid the ornament in half way.
The end result is an ornament that is taken out when ready to be used. It wouldn’t be hard to glue or tape the bottom point if needed and it’s a great way to keep some of the card when the rest is tossed in the garbage (and it usually is!). Thanks for stopping by!

I made this album with manila file folders, K&Co dp, and the Silhouette Cameo. Mini albums have so many different looks and this one was fun to make. The tags, flourishes, poinsettias, and ornaments were cut with the Cameo. I used Spellbinders tags and snowflakes and bound it all with the Cinch. These would make great grandparents gifts, filled with pictures and memories of grandchildren…movie tickets and other memorabilia of time spent together. Thanks for stopping by!
