Take Three: Winter Day 5

Here we are...the final day of  Take Three: Winter previews!! Thank you again for your support and your comments.  It's been nice to be back for 5 days of posts.  I am sure you have been wondering where I have too!!! LOL.  I will be absent from tonight's (Nov 14th) forum party as I am currently away on vacation with my family.  I wanted to send out a special shout out to my mum who has been looking after my home and dog for the past week too!!  After the family vacation I will be absent again as I will be attending a conference--I will be sure to tell you all about it too because I hear it is life changing.

My final card for the release is a special one.  I absolutely adore the muted look of flashy patterned paper behind vellum.  I created a card base and covered it with vellum paper.  I also stamped the snowflake images in different colours to match the paper/cardstock colours.  As a final touch I stamped the sentiment on top of the vellum and attached baker's twine too.  I clipped the bottom of the card to give you a better look at the card :)


  1. Create card bases and layers.
  2. Stamp image in different coloured ink, and stamp sentiment.
  3. Attach baker's twine.
  4. Adhere all layers

Thanks for stopping by during the countdown.  I look forward to hearing from you again and seeing you soon.


P.S. Do you like the matching die??  I didn't receive it in time for the release as I left for holidays but look forward to showcasing it in the future.

I loved your Take Threes series from the get go. I'm looking forward to the die as my corner rounders were just not quite the right shape to fit the stamp like I wanted it to...Perfect Idea!!!

OH MY Alli, I love this stamp set! SO PERFECT! Today's card has to be one of my all time favorites! LOVE the look of vellum over an image with the sentiment on the vellum! LOVE.IT!

Have a great holiday with the family and can't wait to hear what you learn at the conference!

Very pretty! I like how the vellum softens the bright colors and makes the sentiment POP! To answer your question, LOVE the Take 3 die and I was lucky enough to get one last night :)
