365 cards day 137 in a bind




happy friday :) this is for 365 cards who's theme for this days challenge was to make a card using something other than the norm cardstock . i took a piece of cardboard cut it into two, tore off the top layer exposing the corrugated part. punched holes and tied together with hemp and ribbon. i used my cricut and doodlecharms cartridge for the snowman and word joy. i handcut the snow hills. the snowflake is cuttlebug cut and emboss i added some su glitter and a kaiserkraft pearl. i sprinkld the glitter ( su irridescent ice) a tad on the entire card .i also added colorbox fluid chalk. i did a bit of handstitching too.paper is sei. thanks so much for looking have a super friday night! shelly
