Cold Outside

Cold outside 2011 folded We have started our weekly challenge at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge and for the week it all about Shapes and Snowflakes. Remember for this challenge you can use prisma pencils and/or other mediums of your choice including alcohol ink markers such as Copics and Promarker. However there is a twist, you are only allowed to have 50 percent alcohol inks on your images.
Other mediums can be anything from dye inks, distress inks, chalks, heat embossing, water colored pencils, crayons, etc. Prisma's can be ANY colored pencil, it doesn't have to be the Prisma color brand. This week we would like you to create a different shaped card (no standard 4.5 x 5.5 sized cards). AND for a twist we want you to include at least one snowflake on your project. Challenge ends on November 23.

Cold outside 2011  side Now for my card I really do not know of their is a name for my card. I have been calling it a stand up card. I do not know where I got the pattern but it is very simple. My two images are from Mo Manning and they are called Christmas Lamp and Charlie Caroling. The paper I used is from Die Cuts with a View. Sentiment stamp is from Great Impressions. Snowflakes are from the trim a tree sections of Hobby Lobby.

Cold outside 2011 closed This is how I close the card up. I punched out a band with Martha Steward punch and slide it up the bottom so it holds the card closed. When the card is closed the size is 6.50 X 4.25. I hope you join us at Twisted Thursday over at the Outlawz. Have a wonderful week end.
