Christmas Card Challenge, Week 9

And it is still Sunday … so that means that I am ON TIME Winking smile

Before I show you my card for this week, I thought I should let you know that you still have a few hours left to take advantage of FREE shipping!


Just click the photo above and it will bring you directly to my store. Don’t forget to browse the clearance rack while there…

Now it’s time for my card! Here it is:


I was still in the mood for Soft Suede, since I was using that while working on my This & That Journal. So I made this quick card using the Snowflake Soiree. There are  a few things I wanted to point out. A) I used shimmery white cardstock for my main layer and want that same feel for the Soft Sued Card… so I shimmer sprayed it! B) I used the small Bottle Cap, smashed.. as center on the large snowflake.


And I did a little paper piercing on the tag:

  1. What are you doing to properly & very nicely smash your bottle caps? They look great!

    1. Kathy,
      I open the BigShot platform all the way... so there is no tab. Then use clear plate, put bottle caps on it (face down), another clear plate and roll through... it's so easy
