Hobbycutz Challenge

Morning all.

It's time for a new challenge at Hobbycutz

This week our theme is

A Shaped Card

so none of your square cards this week!

We're sponsored this week by Sassy Studio.

Now this isn't what I had in mind when I started off making this card. I went to look for something else and discovered this Sizzix snowflake die that I bought in the recent sale and decided I'd go for a snowflake shaped card.... yeah, I know. Make life easy eh?! 

Once I had cut the snowflake I cut a circle to stick it to but I embossed it first. I then printed the sentiment and in a HUGE departure for me I actually changed the look of one of Kobie's fabby embellishments. I love the look of them, I like the wood so I tend not to touch them when I'm using them but sticking a wooden butterfly on my WOW card would have looked a bit silly. I painted it white and when it was dry I added some Cosmic Shimmer Glacier Ice.
