Festive Friday

Good morning & TGIF to all of you!!! Today is Festive Friday over at My Cricut CraftRoom! This is the first time I have participated in Festive Friday! I think I have done every day now except Saturday (Scrapbook Saturday, which I am not into scrapbooking too much!) So first I thought I would do Thanksgiving for today's project, but then decided to do winter!! It's finally getting cold here in Texas...well for a couple of days then it's back to the 80's again =/

But Wanting to get into the holiday mood, I knew snowflakes would do the trick! :) I recently "acquired" the cart "When It's Cold Outside" thanks to my BCB Tammy!! I just LOVE the snowflakes on this cart!! Absolutely GORGEOUS!! And here is my project for today....
I cut three different snowflakes & on each one, I cut the top layer in light blue & the shadow layer in silver. I cut each one at 3.5". Instead of layering them directly on top of the shadow layer, I offset it a little for a little variety! The background paper is from a DCWV HUGE Christmas stack I got last year for Christmas! I then found some snowflake glittery stickers that I added to each one...printed my sentiment on the computer & punched each word out with my circle punch. Inked the edges of the circles & put them in the center of the snowflake! Added some ribbon and a brad. Then made a matching gift card & RSVP pen! Below is some close-up pics of each snowflake...


I really love how this turned out! So festive!! :) Be sure to head on over to My Cricut CraftRoom to see more Festive Friday projects! :) I have a SUPER EXCITING give-away this weekend...and oh boy are you going to love it!! (Who doesn't love give-aways???) So be sure to check back during the weekend! The give-away will be going on all weekend so you have plenty of time to check it out! :)

Until next time...
