Hello to all of you , late again on my posting . It is a personal goal I set myself , but my pains sometimes overtake my ( small ) goals . I've learned to take every day for what it brings and live accordingly .

But now I want to share some of my winter season cards !

 My first card is a pyramid card . I actually do not like pyramids  because of the heavy layering ( up to 8 layers ) . So I go in between and only use max. 4 layers to keep the card in balance and fit for posting .
 I liked the image very much though ,
and embellished my card with a trim of lace, ribbon and a hanger of stars . And a few punched snowflakes .

My next card : A 3D bird . I placed it before a handcut winter tree on which I again glued some punched out snowflakes . And I cut  a rectangle shape out of the front of the card , covered the inside of my with acetate, and covered the acetate with a few strokes of gold lined stickers to create a window .

 On the inside of the card , on the right pannel ,I glued an image , a  free download . I think it looks cosy .

My third card is very different ,

 I couldn't resist the four happy snowmen . Found they diserved a beautiful gold embellished background heart ...

For the matting I used punched out flowers with a touch of golden glitterglue, on which I glued the oval picture .

Some twine and winter branch , a few glittery stars ....and this is it .

And then a more refined image , also 3 D , with just two madeira golden thread cross stitches to brighten up the two paper backgrounds .

 I' ve enlarged this small 3 D picture so the 3 D is better vieuwable .

 I kept it simple , distressed the edges and used some gold sticker borders , as I found this card did not ask for more and also this card was for someone who loves simplicity . She was quite pleased with it .

 And my last card for this week : also quite simple and 3D cutting , not very easy with all those small flowers !

Hope to be here soon again with some more wintery things !

Lots of hugs and until then ,
Love , Rosa
