Snowflakes and Greens Pop 'n Cut Card

Good morning friends - I'm afraid I don't have much of an update on my Dad. He continues to be confused, forgets that we visit him and tells visitors we don't bother coming. He isn't able to bear weight and stand yet, but at least his modified diet has his choking and coughing under control. We have no idea how long he will remain in the hospital before he is transferred wherever he is to go next.

I do have a card to share today, a shimmery Pop 'n Cut card ...

It was hard to capture all the sparkle in the patterned paper  and the die cut snowflake, but it's there. I also added two punched circles on the label, using Stampin' Up's Glimmer Paper.

While the card base is a 4 x 6-1/2" scalloped card, I used Karen Burniston's A2 Pop 'n Cut card base with the Wavy Label insert for the inside. It was cut out of white pearlized Bazzill card stock and embossed with a snowflake embossing folder.

The tree had been Cricut cut and sitting in my Christmas "Odds and Sods" pile so I cut a little notch in the pop out portion to insert the tree stem so the tree didn't stick out the bottom of the card when it was closed. I added lots of glitter glue to the tree portion for more sparkle and shine.

The Christmas greeting was stamped on the coordinating Wavy Label framelits, and I added a 2nd one as a place to add a penned greeting and our signatures.

(Remember you can always see my Sizzix Flip-it, Pop N Cut and Accordion Flip cards by looking on the right side of my blog under LABELS then scrolling down to the 'S' section.)
