Snowy Postcard Easel


Team Snowflake's challenge this week and our newest member of the team, Susan is hosting at Winter Wonderland. Our challenge is easel cards and the DT have a variety of shaped easel cards to inspire you.  We are sponsored this week by The Hobby House who are offering a £10 voucher to one lucky winner.

I've used the gorgeous Stampendous Snowy Postcard stamp I bought at the end of last Christmas so didn't get too much chance to use it. That will change this year so expect to see it a lot more. I stamped it in DI Vintage Photo and heat embossed it with frantage. The first time I have managed to use it without any mess on my desk, hooray. The papers are some old Forever Friends ones which fitted in with my idea of keeping this card neutral. I've used the lovely MB Frostyville border die and an MS snowflake border punch which has been used with white glitter card but not sure the glitter really shows up.
