Hi there blog friends I hope you’re in the mood for Christmas because today is the first day of “A Waltzingmouse Christmas” and there are lots little surprises in store. As you might guess, Christmas is a BIG holiday with Claire and she creates the most scrumptious designs for a crafters stash. Today we’re sharing a set called Alpine Christmas and I love the whimsy of the set. I pulled the little snowman and made a glittery scene on a round card using Spellbinders Grand Stately Circles, Spellbinders Grand Circles and Spellbinders Create A Flake Five.
Here’s your Step By Step Recap of die cuts and layers, from the bottom up: Start out with a Card Base using Grand Stately Circles, foam tape, seafoam matting layer cut using Grand Circles #1, kraft matting layer cut using Grand Circles #1 and trimmed down to stamping, add snowflake in upper right using Create A Flake Five. Add ribbon, lace, bow and bling. As always, stack, position ribbon, pearls and bow on the correct layer, admire then glue!
