Sledding Crafty Chicks

Tonite's card is a simple one I made with the Crafty Secrets "Snow Bunny" stamp set again. This little sledding chick image is adorable, and a perfect size for using in the nestabilities circle dies. I used black and red for this card, and stamped snowflakes all over a patterned paper that I got from a Crafty Secrets Paper pad. The paper is mainly white and has raised swirls in it, which made me think snow flurries. So I added more of them in red and black to match my gingham.

I also used a cool new product that I bought at the Pine City Scrapbooking Co; it's called "Flower Soft" and is this funky, netty-type stuff that you use to simulate flowers or holly. Their website is HERE if you're interested...I just bought the Vintage Christmas color for holly and wreaths, etc., but I have a feeling I'll be going back for more of the pastel flower colors of it too! You just glue it to your images with a liquid glue pen, like you'd adhere glitter or flock. I press it down into the glue to make sure it sticks well. COOL STUFF!

Zapstar, I love the look with the glitter around the edges. It looks or reminds me of Christmas tinsel.

What a great card Lisa! I like the flower soft addition around the image for a change from using glitter :) And then topping off with SILVER sparkly on the card! GREAT!

What a cute card! I love the sparkly on it. I have some Flower Soft, too, and it is so much fun to use (and not way expensive).

Have a great day!

Another nice card! Flourishes carries that flower soft stuff too, I should have picked some up in my last order, especially now seeing how nice it turned out on your card, I wish I had!
