This week we were charged with making an ornament. I chose to make a Triangle Shaker ornament, an adaptation from the Triangle Shaker card in the December 2006 Technique Junkie Newsletter. The original instructions came from our friends at www.pennywisearts.com. It is rather hard to see in the picture, but the snowflakes on the acetate were colored with Gelly Roll Glaze Pens, a technique from WAAAY back -- Gel and Acetate from the August 2004 issue. The snowflakes have a great raised texture.
This card will be sent to the winner of today's Anniversary Give Away a Day! It is appropriate because today's offering is an unmounted, brand new version of these same stamps: Lace Snowflakes, a retired set from Stampin' Up!. My set of these image is well used -- I still think they are some of the prettiest snowflakes I own. If you are not familiar with the set, go HERE to see a gallery of cards using them. In addition to the stamps and ornament, you will also receive a pack of 15 silver cards with matching envelopes plus a jar of silver glitter. This give away will put you on the way to making beautiful snow-themed cards!
