CTC245 – Let It Snow


Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by tonight. If you are in Perth (Western Australia) I hope you are enjoying the gorgeous weather we are having right now. It’s starting to feel like Spring has arrived (I hope I am not jinxing it!).

Tonight we are being inspired by the Let It Snow suite on pages 18-23. I know there are some people in Australia and New Zealand that dislike the idea of snow-themed cards at Christmas….but I love them. I’ve never had a white Christmas, but it is on my bucket list. My kids (ages 3 & 5) actually have never seen snow – though that will change next year though as we have a family ski trip planned, which I am sure will include building a snowman – exciting times!

But back to the topic at hand – I have picked the card in the above photo – top and centre to CASE tonight. I have made it non-christmassy though, as I know there will be lots of you out there who haven’t shopped for Christmas supplies yet.

I made three cards, all with the same layout but across three different genres. One of more feminine, one more masculine and one for the kids – cover all bases!

For all the cards I used a one of the stitched nested label dies, a stitched circle and then a feature image, much like the catalogue example.

The first features the Bird Ballad DSP (and yes – I fussy cut those birds!), and the subtle embossing folder.

The second features elements from the Come Sail Away suite,

And the final card is made using the Dinoroar Suite – did you know the dies in this suite can cut out some of the images on the DSP? Both the dinosaurs below are cut from the DSP.

I hope you have enjoyed tonight’s cards, which one is your favourite? Leave me a comment and let me know.

We’d love to see you join in with us for this week’s challenge, maybe you want to start on your own Christmas card stash, or maybe you just want to make some other themed card. All are more than welcome 🙂

  1. Brilliant case idea. And my favourite is the bird ballad DSP and your stunning fussy cutting. All of these cards are pretty spectacular though.


  2. All three cards look great! It’s always so hard when you are asked to pick one. If I had to, I’d probably pick the Come Sail Away one. The embossed background looks great and all elements go so well together. But then again the googly eye on the dinosaur looks great too.


  3. Well… I think all 3 cards are brilliant, and great idea making one for a male, one for a female and one for the kids. No.. can’t pick a favourite.


  4. I love all of them! I love how you’ve shown how different the same layout can look when you switch up the colours and dsp/stamps. The embossed backgrounds are gorgeous, I love the look of the waves, you’ve reminded me I really need to get that EF. If I had to pick a favourite I’d go with the dinosaurs, I think it’s such a rawsome card. 🙂 Siobhan.


  5. A fabulous set of cards, Shannon. It is a great layout and you’ve shown how versatile it is. It is amazing how the different positioning of the greeting makes you see the same layout differently. Love them all!
