A Cold Snowy Night and a Card


 
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…..but it’s February! The snow is coming down in a steady shower and it is sticking to the roads and driveways tonight – enough that the roads look slippery. Looks like we will be shovelling tomorrow – I get the new shovel too! It was a cool, wet walk this morning as well. There was just a light snow shower, not much wind and the temperature was just above freezing so we decided to walk uptown and back. Going was pretty nice but coming home we were facing the wind and every once in awhile it would gust up and it seemed to switch to the north at the same time so we had wet snow hitting us in the face. We were mighty glad to be back home.

Today’s card is one that I made the other night when I was looking for a particular colour in the blue stash bag and came across these two pieces of paper and decided to make them into a card instead of putting them back in the bag.

 

This was simple enough to make and I really like how it turned out. I’m not sure if I’m making it into a retirement or birthday card though….maybe I’ll just leave it blank for now. The two pieces of paper were taped together at the back and then glued to a kraft card base. I like the kraft ones for men’s cards. There is a small light beige line in the striped paper so I found some light beige cardstock and cut a circle. Then a script stamp was stamped on white cardstock with light brown ink and die cut with the next size smaller circle – Spellbinders. The feathers were glued together at the bottom and then tied with bakers’ twine. The tag was hand cut from the same paper as the largest circle and notched at one end. There was a small piece of the stripped paper left over so I cut a small piece and glued it to the end of the tag with the strips going the opposite way. The sentiment was stamped and then the tag was attached using dimensional tape.

That’s all for a cold, snowy Tuesday,

Cheers

Violet
