Hello, friends! I hope you’re all doing well. How is it already Friday?? This week has flown by. I have a video and card that I’ve been meaning to share, but it wasn’t until I found something that had been missing that I was able to complete it the way I wanted. I know it’s shocking that I lost something in my craft room…again. SIGH. You may have already seen this card in my blog post introducing this month’s All the Joy Release from Simon Says Stamp

This card really started as an accident that I almost threw out. But, you’ll see that I didn’t give up and kept working at it. I also have a surprise card to share towards the end of the video which was definitely a huge accident that turned into a success. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen that card. I don’t want to include a picture of it here because it will ruin the surprise of how the card started out. You can view the video below or head directly over to YouTube

My card features the Soft Snowfall Embossing Folder. Inking up the embossed panel is where the “accident” happened. Once I salvaged the panel and liked the results, I finished the card with the adorable Wonky Tree-o die set. The Clean Line Christmas stamp set that I had originally wanted to use for this card went missing, and I finally found it and was able to swap out the sentiment that I had originally used. 

I hope this card and video put a smile on your face today. As always, I appreciate you visiting my blog.

Wishing you all a crafty day,

  1. Love this card! When I saw it, my very first thought was that it looked like the view of my blue spruce trees during a sleet / ice storm from the window within. Beautiful! I agree w/ you that keeping going sometimes works – but I have to say, I probably would have given up on the one w/ the grain heads. You are a hero for soldiering on with that. I would have been too discouraged. It turned out cool, though!

    1. Sorry for the late response, Lori! Thank you so much visiting my blog and commenting. A view of blue spruce trees always sounds like a nice thing to me!

  2. I LOVE this technique you discovered. It looks like a blizzard and adds so much more interest to a snowy background. I foresee using it with lots of different winter critters.

    1. Thank you for leaving a comment, Sheila. I apologize for not responding sooner! I agree – this background would be great for critters. I might just have to do that!
