FM191 Warm Winter Wishes

Often after we get through the holidays, we start focusing our crafting on spring.  Flowers, birds, spring colors... but hold on!  When do we get to celebrate winter without the hullabaloo of holidays?  No need to rush away the beautiful, pristine winter snow scene.  My Friday Mashup challenge to you is to celebrate January with a winter-themed project, perhaps including a few snowflakes.

I am a late-arriver to the Wonderous Wreath stamp set and framelits bundle.  The stamps and framelits come with "orientation tabs" for easy placement.  Such a fun, quick way to create a beautiful layered image!  I'm all for using a holiday set for a winter card.  Who says you have to take your wreath off your door after Christmas?  Not me!

I used some cool January colors for my wreath and added some snowflake embellishments.  Also the Island Indigo berries were coated with Crystal Effects for more fun texture.  What a cheerful door to welcome you in from the cold winter storm!  I was also playing along with 'Tis the Season Challenge #32.

This week's Mashup Challenge is:

  • Create a project with a "Winter theme". 
  • Create a project  with "Snowflakes". 
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "Winter project with Snowflakes".
If there are some items from the Holiday Catalog you don't want to miss, make sure you place your order by January 5!

Stamps: Wonderous Wreath; Paper: Smoky Slate, Very Vanilla, Whisper White; Ink: Lost Lagoon, Island Indigo, Smoky Slate; Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Rhinestone jewels, Frosted Sequins, Crystal Effects, Sponge, Wonderful Wreath framelits, Big Shot, Dimensionals.
