Christmas for my Bestie

My BFF and I are apparently still on the same wavelength, even though we've been best friends for 48 years a looong time, and we live 2,300 miles apart. (It all started when we were in junior high. I'd change my hair color, stop by her house on the way to school to pick her up, and her hair would be the same color!)

She made an adorable shaker card for me for Christmas, with a cat and dog colored to look like May and Pumpkin. And while hers was on the way here, I was making one for her! Great minds!

I had a bit of trouble with static making the glitter stick to the inside of the window sheet, so it really looks snowy and frosty! I think next time I'll use sequins or something a bit chunkier. For my first attempt, I layered the die cuts behind the window sheet and added the glitter. It covered the dies cuts and you couldn't see any details. The second attempt was successful. I sandwiched the die cuts between two layers of window sheet so the glitter could moved freely without getting hung up on the die cuts. Wile E Coyote - super genius!

That white snowflake started as one of the wooden Snowflake Elements. I dipped it in Whisper White Craft ink, then white embossing powder and heated it with the Heat Tool. Then I dipped it on the ink pad again and into Iridescent Ice embossing powder and heated it. It turned out all sparkly, but I don't think you can see it in the photo.

If you want those Wooden Snowflake Elements, you better get them SOON. The Holiday Catalog ends in five days!
