Boys will be Boys at Winter Wonderland

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you have had a wonderful week and are looking forward to the weekend.
I think I might pop over to the Craft Event in Taunton on Sunday as my DH and Jack will be in Manchester for the football :o)

Today I'm here to share my DT make for the new challenge over at


and this week Team Snowflake are sharing inspiration on the the theme


Here's what I did:

I love being on this DT as it is certainly helping me get ahead with my Festive Makes :o)

Card Ingredients:

Image: Pink Gem Designs 'Reindeer Josh'
Colouring Medium: Copics
Design Papers: Dovecraft Back to Basics 'Vintage Christmas'
Memory Box 'Precious Mittens' Die
Marianne Createables 'Holly Branch' LR0244
A touch of Stickles and a dot of Glossy Accents
Card Base: Go Kreate Square Frames Frilly #10

I used the Go Kreate dies to make this card last week and I was asked how I make a card base with them.

I cut two of the largest dies:

 and then score across the top a couple of centimetres down:

Apply wet glue above the score line:

 and adhere to the other die cut:

This is what it will look like on the reverse:

Hope this makes sense :o)

Our wonderful sponsor this week is the fabulous Janet from:

The DT got to play with some of Janet's adorable images and one lucky winner will be able to choose 2 digi images - and with so many to choose from you'll be spoilt for choice!!!!

Way too cute Debs, love the shiny red nose! I have been trying to get this Go Kreate die for ages, they do not have any in stock at Go Kreate and are supposed to be letting me know when they are getting them! They have hardly any of their XXL dies in - weird!! Susan xx
