My Creative Time Throwback Thursday Challenge

Throwback Thursday Challenge - Episode~104

"Good Morning My CREATIVE FRIENDS AND Welcome to another Throwback Thursday Challenge!;) For this week's challenge, you are to create a "SHAPED" card AND include the color "ORANGE" in it! You can make ANY theme you want, just as long as it includes those two things in it!"

Thanks to Emma for such a fun challenge.  I had a great time making my card.  The only complaint I had is that my finished card was a bugger to photograph!!  

I used transparency film (you know, the clear plastic stuff) to make the shape card in the shape of the snow globe from Doodlecharms. The snow globe was cut at 5" (as was the layer to make the base) and the Snow man (and his layers) were cut at 3".  I added silver snowflakes, two to the inside of the card and one to the front bottom of the base. I matted the "Holiday Hello" sentiment (Studio G) up on mirrored paper and pop dotted it. 

Inside the snow globe card there is a matching snowman layer so the message can be added to the card.  Lastly, I added the white gel pen "stitches" and the little red and white "bow."



Thanks so much for visiting me here at CardsbyCG.blogspot.com.  I'd love to hear what you think.  Feel free to become a follower or sign up for my email updates (provided through FeedBurner).  I'd love to share my crafting journey with you! - Cheryl

Great use of a transparency. I have tons in my closet at school that I do not use any more since I have an interactive class, so I think I am going to use your idea for our scrapbook club. : )

Waiting for an e-mail to hear your story.

Very cute, I love snowmen. I sometimes have problems with my pictures also. I actually like taking my pictures outside when I can because it catches the true colors.
