Sharing a week with Joy Taylor: Day 2

Welcome back friends! As you know Joy and I are working together this week sharing ideas on our blogs. My blog posts will appear at 3:00pm CST.  Each day we are using something different as our inspiration and today we have a little sketch.


I turned the sketch for a vertical top fold card (this seems to be my favorite fold lately).  I had some extra little digi snowmen laying around left-over from my ornament project and thought "he" was perfect with a snowy background.  


Add here's a peek up close at the details.


One tip I can offer is for the oval.  I drew the oval in my Silhouette program and then laid the snowflake on top, cut as usual and you end up with a snowflake within the shape.  COOL!  I stuck the cut out snowflake inside the card. 

Oh and then I couldn't wait to use my Tim Holtz border die, love it...I just stamped it with the Hero Friend Definition using ColorBox Frost White pigment ink (my favorite).  Ummmm... I used a NEW 2011 stamp...can you spot it?

Now you can head on over to Joy's blog to check out what she has in store with the sketch!

I'll be seeing you tomorrow with another inspiration piece and card creation.

Enjoy!
