Snow. I have a love-hate relationship with Snow. I'm not so crazy about that kind of snow that sticks around for weeks and creates havoc on the roads but I absolutely love the snow that first come down for the season. Especially late at night when the sky turns a bright orange color and the snow that comes down would bring with it a breath-taking calmness.
And so when the weatherman threatens the other week that we would have to suffer through a lot of snow this winter, all I can think of is that lovely first snow.
Today's card is a message to the weatherman. In MTC, I "sketched" out how I want the card to look like. The snowflakes are from LD's Peppermint Holiday graphic set while the sentiment is from the accompanying Peppermint Holiday Expressions set.
Using MTC, I cut the words on adhesive-back paper and position them on the card with transfer tape (leftover from a previous vinyl project). For the benefit of those of you who have never used transfer paper, here are some pictures that show how I used it:
I used adhesive-back paper and left the white backing on the mat after the transfer tape has picked up the words. If you do not have any adhesive-back paper, just apply glue to the letters while they are on the transfer paper before you stick them down onto your card.
I embossed the card front by using a Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder. The glittered snowflakes were made by first cutting them out on cardstock and then applying glue on them before coating them with a layer of glitter. They were then adhered to the card front with foam tape. All that's left to do is to layer that onto a card base and the card is done.
So that's my message, Mr. Weatherman! Bring it on and let it snow! ;-)
