Crafters of Faith - December

It is hard to believe that this will be the last post for the year 2012!   The year sure seemed to fly by. One great addition for me this year, was becoming a part of the Crafters of Faith group on SCS.  I so enjoy crafting and chatting with these ladies, thank you!

Our challenge from Miss Kelly for December, was to create a card with the following parameters:

For our December challenge, we wish to "SNOW" you our winter inspired Crafter of Faith cards!

COF sisters: Create a card/project using a snowy-winter theme and "ring in the new year with glitter and bling!" Your winter/snow card creation should reflect the beauty of the gift of the season - snow, winter, snowflakes, etc and include bling and glitter to ring in the joy of what will be!


I am lucky enough to be a part of another crafting group on Facebook.  I received the most generous little gift pack that I thought to use for this challenge, thank you Miss Edith.   There were pre-printed punch out items that I had not worked with much before, so wanted to dig in and try them.  I tried to get the photograph to depict the foil(s) on the paper punches.  They are so pretty in natural light.  I also liked the use of a different hue of green.

I seem to have had challenges abound on this COF task.   Let's forget that I created a card off of my memory of what the challenge was this month and it had NOTHING to do with the challenge!   LOL   Then I chose this great DP to work with for the pretty glitter and there was a portion of the DP that the glitter was not printed on {this of course was noticed when I was trying to put the card together and had to change the layout}.  Then I used those great rhinestones that are attached to string only to have the sticky backing pull off and I had to glue it on.   So, please notice the uber pretty snowflake - which had no problems at all - and met the winter inspiration of the challenge!   {wink}

Have a safe New Years Eve!
