A Frosty Christmas

Hi Stampers! Here are some cards I made for a friend, which entirely CASED and inspired by Dawn Griffith. She has a wonderful videw on how to make the icicles on the card below and on how to make the Frosty the Snowman card I made using only punches! To watch the videos go to Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. She has a great blog with lots of inspiring projects!

This card was a lot of fun to make but does require patience. The icicles on top of the card were made using Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds and some wax paper. The patience comes in waiting for the Crystal Effects to dry before attaching it to your card. But I think the end result is definitely worth the wait, don't you?

The Frosty Card I think is so CUTE! He came together rather quickly, with the help of various different punches and some Dazzling Diamonds. Dawn uses the Trio Flower Punch to add the flowers to his top hat but I don't have that punch so I used the smallest flower from the Boho Blossoms Punch. Don't you just love him!
