Snow box card.

On Create and Craft this morning they were selling something called Floating Decoupage Kits... so I followed the same sort of instructions and adapted it my way, and here's how it turned out.
I used one of my free stamps from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine and coloured him with my Do Crafts brush markers. The background was just blue and white card and the white card torn and added "snow" with glitter glue. I made the front part a shaker and added some white glittery snow. The sides are made with concertina panels so the whole thing can fold flat (ish) for posting, and then it's able to stand up once the card out of the envelope.
I used my Cricut to cut out the card, and then just cut the back off before decorating it and reattaching when the concertina folded sides were made.
I enjoyed making the card and will have another go at another one.

Also today I finished this blanket for my unborn grandson. It was made with gorgeous blue lustre wool and using the wattle stitch. If you click on the picture at the bottom you should be able to see the "glistening" thread running through the wool, plus a close up of the stitches. I made a white blanket in this wool also, and it look like it was glistening snow.
