Warm Winter Wishes...

The Scrap-Mart design team is preparing for our annual Holiday Blog Hop which will take place the week of Dec. 5-10. I have contacted many of the manufacturers we deal with regularly and invited them to play along with us during that week. Some of the companies have agreed to send our design team product to work with that week as well.

Canvas Corp is one of those companies. If you are not familiar with them, let me tell you that you will LOVE their products. They have their own line of paper as well as tons of embellishments and, as their name suggests, canvases too. Canvas Corp was VERY generous and sent two boxes stuff with goodies for our design team to play with. Oh, and did I mention burlap?! Oh yea! I couldn't wait to dig in and when I saw the pink zebra print skinny cards, I was so happy!! I decided to make a non-traditional winter-themed card with it.

I love the pink/kraft combo! And, I couldn't resist adding a bit of sparkle. After cutting my kraft piece I added 1/4 strips of Scor-Tape along each edge then covered each strip in irridescent glitter. Next, I cut various snowflakes from the Spellbinders 2010 Snowflake collection and the Create-a-Flake Two sets, inked the edges pink and covered them with the glitter. After arranging the snowflakes, I added the ribbon and sprinkled some rhinestones. The sentiment was stamped from PTI's Mailbox Greetings, cut using the ribbon die from the Lacey Pennants set then inke. I added a trio of SU! mini jingle bells and strung all the pieces on some silver cord and tied it around the bow.

Can I tell you how much I LOVE how this card turned out??! It is all of my favorites wrapped into one. I can't thank Canvas Corp enough for their generosity! You will be seeing me use their products LOTS more!

The snows have been cut neatly, but the ribbon should be used thin one would look more beautiful.
