POLYSHRINK... Where have you been all my life???


ok... not ALL my life...I did use it when I was uhhh...younger...but forgot about it and NEVER did I think I would use it on cards... was I WRONG! I got a new stamp from DRS Designs, this cute little snowflake ribbon slide, and remembered one of the other talented design team members had used it on her card and a light went off. Where was that stuff??? Well, I dug it out, stamped the snowflake ribbon slide with white stazon and cut it out of the plastic. I used a horizontal punch to make the slide holes... DON'T forget the holes! Then I got the heat gun and got TOTALLY freaked out when it started to shrink... but lo and behold, it came out perfect... so I made a few more. I strung them on some silver cord and added them to the front of the card. I embossed shiny cardstock with snowflakes and sponged ink on the snowflakes so they would show up. I also stamped the snowflake ribbon slide on some paper, cut the holes and added some ribbon. So there you have it... I hope you like this card... it was really fun to create!
