How About a Wedding for a Snow Lady?

Hello Crafty Friends,

I got quite a bit done today (cleaned, bought our Christmas meal, and wrapped presents), but you know how it goes...there is always more to do. I found out I need to run an errand or two tomorrow to pick up a few last minute stocking stuffers. I guess I didn't plan as well as I thought.

I created this card this evening and when my daughter came home form Busch Gardens I told her to take a peek. The first comment she made was, "Is it for a wedding?" That was not my intentions, but I sure do think it could be.

Snowman and must include 3 elements!
~ metal
~ border
~ monochromatic


These are some of the materials I used. They are from a big craft bag that I have had since I got married 18 years ago. It was stored away and just recently pulled out. I read a post by Carri at The Creative Cutter Room about using silk flowers, which is how I remembered this bag. Once I opened it, I couldn't believe all the great supplies in there...beads, florals, tulle, lace, etc. My wedding was red, white, and black and my sister's was white and teal. I made all the bouquets and boutenieres.
Looking forward to using more of these "stored away" treasures.

Other Materials:
silver and white glitter cardstock
Cuttlebug embossing folder ~ snowflake
white ink
silver brads
lacey ribbon
wiggly eyes
white flowers and leaf
white glitter
silver gem
Winter Woodland cartridge ~ hat cut at 2"
snow lady die-cut was in scrap pile

Be sure to stop by the Creative Cutter Room for the birthday giveaway. It is Cathie's birthday on Christmas Eve. Happy Birthday to you!

Additional Challenges:

Merry Christmas,
Georgiana
