Let it Snow!


This is my card for Lawnscaping's fun Texture Challenge. For texture I used linen fabric for the background that I zigzag stitched on my cardbase, and I embroidered French knots for snowflakes. I used lace for snow,  a toothpick for the sign and paper piecing for the snowmen.


I tried something new on this card - embroidery stitches for the Kraft Journal's challenge that starts tomorrow, I have fabric for Frosted Designs and I have Snowmen for Craft your days away. I'm also entering it for the "Anything Goes" at Wee memories.

Have a very Merry Christmas, hugs, Karin

This is SO adorable, Karin! Love that linen fabric and love the lace snow. The embroidered snowflakes are fabulous, too, and I adore those snowmen. Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Kraft Journal.

Underbart kort :) jag är på jakt efter juteväv att använda på kort. Råkade köpa ett galet dyrt 12x12 ark som jag trodde var mer.

Jag hade inte heller varit snäll, fick inte en enda pysslig klapp :( Skrev nog önskelistan för sent ;)

Stor kram och god fortsättning!
