Today's card is inspired by one of the tags posted by the lovely and talented Broni Holcrombe in this post, using the gorgeous snowflake tissue tape Tim Holtz recently released and a Sizzix sizzlit die set I recently acquired. Sometimes the displayed project used on a die is almost enough to make me not consider it; this is one of those cases. The picture on the die was real glitzy and shades of blues with a blue/purple glitter added to it - NOT my style. I did glitz up the dies a bit by adding a bit of gold tied into a bow thru the faux button. I have to admit it was more laziness than anything else. I know I have some twine about but couldn't locate it right away. Then I thought of grey perle cottons that I must have on hand (I used to needlepoint lots before I got hooked on card-making ... MUST get back to that! so many unfinished projects, so little time, y'know?!), but I was too lazy to go dig 'em up. Even the pewter snowflake eyelet was dissed - I'd have had to pull out my affixer thingy (technical term, here) and the circle punches were handy. So ... here's today's card! It's a bit distressed using Ranger's antique linen distress ink.

stamps: GinaK's believe script; paper: A1's Neenah Natural White and SU's Basic Gray card stocks; ink: Ranger's antique linen and black soot distress inks; accessories: Tim Holtz' Tidings tissue tape and unknown ribbon gold/black cord; tools: Cuttlebug w Sizzix Snowflakes Sizzlit dies
