Here Comes Suzy Snowflake!


  The lovely and talented Marie Bingaman set this week's Jingle Belles' challenge, inspired by Rosemary Clooney's, "Here Comes Suzy Snowflake."  Here was my thinking:  snowflakes...doilies...

  I searched my stash for snowflake patterned paper, and I found this snow and snowflake paper.  I was having trouble coming up with an A2 card design, so I decided to create little 4"x4" cards.

Supplies:
Cricut cartridge:  Create a Critter tree (p.73 accessory cut @ 1 3/4"); Elegant Edges scallop circle (p.23 cut @ 3")
stamp:  My Pink Stamper Biggie Christmas
paper:  BasicGrey Fruitcake "Glisten/Avalanche" and "Pine Branch/Avalanche"
ink:  Memories Colonial Blue and Stampin' Up! chocolate chip
doilies:  EKSuccess
stars:  Making Memories Fa La La glitter pebble stickers

Happy Wednesday!
