Good Wednesday morning!  Smiley from It’s my turn this week to host the Rubbernecker Blogger Challenge.  My challenge is to make a card that is any shape other than 4.25×5.5 and it must include snowflakes.  I think I scared some of the Design Team Members, some of them were complaining yesterday of losing their mojo . . .  Oh please!

For my card, I made an ornament.  I was actually inspired by the vintage ornaments that I have on a wreath and on a smaller tree.  Most of them belonged to my grandparents and then some came from my mother.  They are my most prized Christmas decorations.  I’ll get a picture in a few days and show you!

I cut and embossed the largest of the Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circle Nestabilities to make the card base.  Then cut and embossed BasicGrey Wassail paper with the largest Spellbinders Classic Circle Nestabilities for the pattern on the ornament.

Of course, I said the card must include snowflakes, and I could help but pull out my Spellbinders Snowflake Wonder Shapeabilities.  I’m hooked on these snowflakes . . . yes, hooked!  I inked the different snowflakes, covered them with Glossy Accents and then sprinkled on Diamond Dust and Crystal glitter.

For the top hanger of the ornament, I cut and embossed some scrap white cardstock with the Spellbinders Long Classic Rectangles.  I covered part of the paper with gold acrylic paint, sponged on some Vintage Photo ink, and then went back over with copper acrylic paint to create a more vintage look.  On the inside of the card is a white circle to write a personal note on.  Too darn clever if you ask me . . . I have a card and it can then hang on the tree as an ornament!
