Snow Much Fun


Have you ever had a card that kind of took on a life of its own?  Well that’s what happened to me making this card.  I saw this awesome sketch at Always Playing with Paper and wanted to play along.  I recently purchased a die from PaperTrey Ink and I thought it was unique and it could work for the box below the oval on the sketch. WRONG!!! I struggled trying to decide on what shape to use as the shapes didn’t blend well.  I tried an circle, then a star, then a square and finally decided to turn the card on it’s side and have the oval go horizontally.  All in all, I like how the card turned out.  I used the sketch as my inspiration even though it looks a bit different now with a few changes.
