Happy Thursday, crafty friends!
I’m back today with another card to share that I made for the January 2020 CardMaps sketches on the PageMaps blog. Here is the fun sketch that I used, and here is my take on it featuring a super cute, but older, collection from Simple Stories called Sub Zero.
It is supposed to start snowing here this afternoon. If that happens, it will be our first snowfall of the season, and I am super excited. It’s been feeling so spring-like that our cherry and redbuds trees are already in bloom, and I was beginning to think that snow would never happen for us this year. Hopefully my card for today will be a good luck charm, and bring on the real stuff.
I closely followed the sketch design, with some simple layering of patterned paper and a stacked sentiment label at the top. I used an old die from Papertrey Ink to add the notebook detailing along the bottom.
With our forecast for snow, I thought it would be a perfect time to share a little bit of my winter decor before it comes down at the end of the month. With our trees blooming, I was feeling a little silly having my winter snowmen still out….but now I’m glad they are. Hoping they, too, will be good luck charms for the real deal today. So with that, here’s a peek at my snowy mantel.
The wooden tray on the bottom is actually a vintage cabbage slicer that my mom gave me some years ago, and just so happens to be a perfect fit for the mantel shelf. I stacked it with wicker-style deer, a pair of prim snowmen, a cottony wispy tree, and a trio of jumbo sparkling snow balls.
