Flower Soft snow and Gingerbread people

First off, the Flower Soft blog is hosting a challenge starting on Wednesday, the 21st.  Check it out for prize info. 
 If you want a snow look for any of  your holiday or winter projects, Flower Soft is the answer.  It comes in the regular size and the newer Ultra Fine size.  I used the Ultra Fine on my card.  All of the elements on my card are digital from Echo Park.  I love using digital papers and elements because you can pick the sizes, etc.
 I ran lines of glue and added the Ultra Fine Flower Soft over it. 

 I also wanted to share my gift card holders.  The holder base is cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy Close to My Heart cartridge. 
I created little rosettes with some of the Gingerbread Land collection by Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker.  The rosettes are so easy and fast to create when using a score board.  I used the Martha Stewart one.  The little gingerbread people are cut from one of the papers. 

 What I found was pretty fun about using this particular piece of paper from the collection is that wherever I cut it, I ended up with a neat pattern once the papers were scored and folded.  I cut my strips at 1 1/2" for these rosettes. 
And for a few more photos...
 You always have to make snow angels!

 And, you have to do some sledding.
It helps to wear all kinds of warm clothing too.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
