White Christmas

If you are interested in joining me for the Crafteezee Crafty Crop, please check out all the details HERE.


Good Morning everyone,

Another weekend gone, there certainly isn't enough hours in the day at the moment and I have a feeling that Christmas will sneak up really quickly.

This is my DT card for Live and Love Crafts and Sandy has given us the theme of "a Christmas Song". The first song that always pops into my head is "I'm dreaming of a white christmas".  My Dad was a Bing Crosby fan and he played this record so much that's its programmed in my head, lol.

Anyway, lots of snow and you know what that means for me...... lots and lots of snow tex, yayyyy. Although you all know I don't have to wait until Christmas to use it right?



I have used the November release Dutch Doobadoo Window Stencil, I will have these in Noor Design UK store on Wednesday :)

The image is cut from the Pion Design Days of Winter 12x12 Diecut sheet. For the wood panels I have used MajaDesign 1905, this sheet is always handy to have.  Lots and Lots of snow tex.


I have added some scallop lace Valentine to the bottom and rose organza trim .  Just to the right of this I used a shabby wooden heart and added some Vax cord, love this cord.


I have used a Noor Design tag die to cut one of the tags and the other tag is cut from the diecut sheet and finished off with a Santa charm, bakers twine and vax cord.  These are popped into a brown pocket and tucked behind the image.

The snowflakes were created using the Noor Design Icicle Border die and finished with a dashing of snowtex and a Melissa Frances flatbacked pearl.


The flower arrangement consists of 20mm and  10mm roses, carnation, clusters of white decoration berries, and cones with a dashing of snow tex.

The leaves were cut from a Noor Design Vintage Flourish Leaf die.

I have added sparkly Greto Garbo lace to the edges of the window doors for that extra touch.

Oh, once again you've done so gorgeous card! Window idea is just amazing and snow tex looks fabulous. How an earth do you get it to look so gritty and rough, "sand-like" (not smooth and sleek)? What "tool" do you use? (Hope I used the right adjectives... ;D)

Hehe...I guessed you'd go with some sort of snow song. :-) Very unique and inspiring card and an excellent choice to use the 1905; looks absolutely brilliant with all the snowtex.
