Are you getting tired of my shabby chic/vintage style cards? Sorry. . .but it's my current obsession so you'll probably have to put up with it for the time being! LOL! I decided to alter a chipboard by running it through a Sizzix die, then applying acrylic paint in white and pink, apply tissue paper over the wet paint, stamped the snowflakes, and finally heat emboss the tag with an iridescent glitter embossing powder. FUN stuff, I tell ya'. The rest is basically decorating the card using DCWV designer paper, snowflakes by Jolee's Boutique, adding the Making Memories ribbon, pearls, and lace. . .that's it!

Anyway. . .that's all for today. Hope you all have a fabulous Saturday!!!
