Today, the Late Night Stampers Group challenged us to go little non-traditional with the colors we chose for our Christmas cards and I popped over to Ann Fitton's blog and she too is looking for some non-traditional creations. Challenge me will ya? :) Well if Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence, Old Olive and a recycle soda can isn't non traditional--I don't know what is. LOL
I am SO happy for these challenges. This card was so much fun to make and it is nice to get away from the Real Red and Garden Green.
I have seen a lot of crafters using their die cut machines to cut snowflakes using empty soda cans. OMGosh, I knew immediately that I had to try it. I 'borrowed' my husband's snips from his garage and cut apart a rinsed and dry soda can. I was a little nervous--boy, are those edges sharp! Be careful if you do this. I ran it through my machine and it was amazing. It rolled through NO PROBLEM and the edges were crimped so there is no worries of yourself or the recipient of the card getting cut. When I get Evan down for his nap this afternoon, I see many soda can snowflakes being cut at my house. :)
