You guessed it.....

...it's another UFO! I am really on a roll here! I found a pack of pre-cut cardstock from a Make & Take project from a Christmas Card class I held long ago (let's put it this way, this color scheme includes BLISS Blue and Mint Melody!!!), and decided to give it a go UFO style!



First, here's what the original sample looked like from the project from a couple of years ago:

The darkness of the pic sorta masks the fun feel of the card, but as you can see it's an old set, and it uses my long lost CRIMPER!! When was the last time I used that thing? FOREVER ago!!










Now here's the new adaptation with the new look:
I took the pre-cut opportunity to make 5 fun Christmas cards, just ready to send to friends and family! How fun is that?!
I still used the crimper because it really adds dimension to the card, and besides, the crimper was in dire need of being used. It's hard to see the sparkle of the snow on the snowy scene, but it's there...oh yes, it's there.
And, in order to get it just right, I had to do what is a long-lost technique for me, the long lost MASKING technique.

Ahhh, the memories are coming alive today!

How awesome! I have both those sets & a crimper that needs the dust dusted off it, kwim?
