Snowglobe Recycling

     This month at Christmas Craft Creations our theme is Christmas characters, that could be Father Christmas, carol singers, a Nativity scene, snowmen and many more.
     Staying with my recycling theme I used a snow globe die set by John Next Door along with some of last years commercial cards. There are no progress photos because I got carried away making and forgot about the camera, it's all pretty simple though.
     I had a rummage through my card stash and found some turquoise card that was a close match to the colours in the pictures and as I had two of the same picture I made two cards, changing the colour of the base so they wouldn't be the same.
     The snowflake is a mix of several different sized ones from various sets layered up with a tiny gem in the middle. They have some shape to the base so may not be good for posting, but hand delivered will be just fine.

     We have a prize this month at Christmas Craft Creations so why not pop over and join us, you may be lucky, if not you will at least have one more Christmas card made. We also have a DT call so if you like what you see and wish to join us then please apply.
