My original goal for the day was to go in search of my crafting table top, but somewhere along the way I decided that was boring. Instead, here are some more cards from my snow kit. Speaking of the snow kit, check out my giveaway in yesterday's post where I am offering up a chance to win the shaped cards and left over parts (there are still plenty!) from that kit.
The previous day when making snow cards I went in search of some fun foam snowflake shapes to add to my cards. I didn't find them in the obvious places which means either I used them already, never really owned them in the first place and it was all a big hallucination, or that I put them in a not-so-obvious place. Any of those are a possibility. Instead I did find the snowman sticker package and of course I HAD to use him. I'm quite pleased with how that card came out. The other card is no slouch either.
Then I fast forwarded several holidays and made an Easter card. Yesterday I received a gift of an iris folding book. I really wanted that particular book because it offered general iris patterns. The general patterns were a large square and a large triangle so you place any opening over it and make it into an iris fold. I have wanted that for quite some time. I even tried making my own (no bueno). Now I have those patterns plus a tutorial on how to draw my own so I can be an iris fold fool! For some reason an egg came to mind as the first thing to try out with my new book. The pattern I used is the general triangle shape. My egg was originally bordered by a gold sticker border, but that peeled off in the night. I guess it wasn't happy trying to maintain an egg shape.
