Vintage Snow Couple

Just a little wintery couple to start the Christmas card collection!

This is for a challenge on SCS to make a card with a window (and a Crafty Secrets image). I had received an order of Crafty Secret images the day before and fell in love with this cute snow couple. My window was cut with two Nestabilities. After running them through my Xyron twice to put adhesive on both sides - I glittered once side. I also cut an acetate window sheet with the larger Nestie and stuck that on the other sticky side. Pop-dots all the way around made it into a shaker window. The tiny glass beads add a bit of movement.

The paper...well that comes from one of those pads of paper that the LSS (local stamp/scrapbook store) had in the clearance bin for like a $1. Hard to beat a pad of 6x6 paper for a BUCK! The vintage papers worked really well with the image!

And finally, I had to use my new Martha Stewart holly punch. I punched three boughs, creased each leaf in half and then brushed with my ever handy brown mini ink pad (Chestnut Roan - what would I do with out it???) Holly berries are Stickles!
