Snowflake

 


Good evening fellow bloggers. 
I'm afraid my blogging came to a screeching halt a week ago, 
as I injured my back, just lifting a bag of groceries out of the car. 
I have spent the past week 'zonked out' on a cocktail of 
painkillers. Today is my first day back on my feet,
albeit with regular 'horizontal' breaks.

This is a rather quick and easy card to make, so I made a couple of them
in different colours. I attached a piece of JAC D.S. tape to a piece of
bright blue cardstock, then after peeling off the top protective layer,
I attached the die-cut snowflake & greeting onto the very sticky
card front. 

I always save the tiny snowflakes left from punching the corners
of my Christmas card inserts, so I placed several of them around
the large snowflake.  I smothered the exposed 'sticky' with glitter,
but as usual, the wonderful sparkle does not show up. To finish 
off, I cut a silver layer, then adhered this to a white card blank.

A closer look at the greetings die-cut.

Wow, only 3 more sleeps til the big day. I hope all your preparations are progressing well, although Christmas 2020 will be like no other. Recently, here in Australia, most restrictions had been lifted, but sadly last week Covid once again reared its very ugly head and is rapidly spreading again, so Christmas, like in so many other places globally, has been basically 'cancelled'.

I am way overdue for my 'horizontal' break (for the night), so I will close.

Stay safe,
Hugs (safely distanced of course),
Jennifer.  x
