yes, i promise to make a product-heavy card VERY SOON!

in the meantime, sorry if you're tired of my drawings and/or watercolor... clearly i'm "in a phase" lol! this particular card is for our brand new theme at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥, "frosty the snowman" for which we'd like to see (betcha can guess?) snow, in the form of snowmen (or women); or a snowy landscape; or even future snowpersons or landscapes... aka snowflakes. i went with the latter:

snowflakes drawn on strathmore watercolor paper with faber castell pitt pens in S and XS; watercolor background made with fuchsia, orchid and ultramarine color burst pigment powders; grey gems: eyelet outlet stickyback bling in three sizes; sakura metallic pens in silver, blue and pink; white and silver glitter + white organza ribbon: michaels; silver metallic paper from my stash; patterned paper: pink paislee; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

i honestly thought the center panel would be kind of equivalent to patterned paper and then i'd add chipboard snowflakes or silk flowers --or both-- on top... as it turned out i just super-embellished the flakes with gorgeous eyelet outlet bling, glitter and metallic pen doodles and then added a little ribbon and a silverpaper frame.

stephanie has also made a super-cool (ok, sorry, but it had to be said, lol!) snow-centric card to inspire you, why not hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and admire that right now?!


  1. Oh my gosh, I thought wow Lauren has the same snowflake set as I do but NO you drew them, AWESOME. Gorgeous card. Fabulous challenge, I love snowmen/ladies

  2. I love those drawn flakes amid the soft watercolor washes. So pretty.

  3. Oh no, that is just fine, continue on drawing and painting! Beautiful card Lauren, thank you for sharing it, Deb xo
