Thoughts of Snow

So far this season, we've only had a dusting of snow or some flurries.  I love me some snow, although I don't want to drive around in it!  With these thoughts, I had to create my own "snow."  I found a pad of My Mind's Eye Christmas papers in my stash from who knows how long ago, but I wish I had looked at it sooner.  The papers are all so gorgeous! 
I decided to alter another makeup container and make a matching card.

The papers already have a nice glittered texture.  I used a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch and a snowflake punch.  I adhered the patterned papers to Bazzill teal cardstock.  I also used some shabby seam binding from Deb's Simple Treasures, pom-pom trim and twine from AC Moore, a teal button, the snowflake and a tag stamped with "let it snow" from Belinda Landtroop.

The container was difficult to work with as it is so tiny.  I used more of the same paper and trims but also added an Anna Griffin snowflake sticker, snowflake button and a tiny silver bell.  Of course, both the card and the box received a coating of Martha Stewart glitter.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  We'll see if my thoughts of snow bring me some soon!!
