November Snow?...In the South?

Hi everyone!  I'm Charlotte, from A Little Bit of Detail, and just so glad to be back with you.  I first want to thank Sheila, my hometown friend, for inviting me back.

  Today was our first day back in school after the Thanksgiving break.  And there was a lot of excitement in the air.  Usually when we return to school after Thanksgiving the two topics of conversation are the Iron Bowl, (Alabama/Auburn football game) and Christmas.  There was some  talk about football, not much about Christmas, because everyone was talking about the predicted snow.  We get very little snow here in Alabama, much less during the month of November.

So as I was thinking about my project, the first thing that came to mind was something with snow.  Here it is.  I made a folded frame card.  Splitcoaststampers.com has a very good tutorial on how to make a folder frame.  It is just about the easiest thing ever to make!  I love it!


The folded frame reminds me of a quilt square.  A nice cozy quilt will feel good on the bed tonight. 


 I cut the snowflake from A Child's Year cartridge.  After cutting it out, I ran it through the Xyron to get it real sticky so I could add some Martha Stewart glitter to it.  It was then added to the folded frame.


  The scalloped frame is cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge.  I added a pale blue sheer glittered ribbon and bow to carry through that frosty look of snow.  



And I finished the card with a label cut from Lacey Labels.  The sentiment is from the Winter Wishes stamp set by K Andrew Designs.  I love these stamps because they can all be mixed and matched to create so many different sentiments.   

Thanks for visiting today.  And if you get a chance, I hope you will drop by A Little Bit of Detail and visit for awhile.  Stay warm, and have a great week!
Charlotte
