Snowmen cards and cardholders

Hello everyone, its been quite a while again, but I had to wait until my glasses were made .

First I want to expess my deep sorrow for the family's of Newtown , so many lives that are damaged , again . It will take forever to live with the losses . I can only say that , in this unstabil world with people turning crazy, and violence around every corner , do enjoy the company of your loved ones at all times .

 I believe that the difficult times we are living in right now are the "hard times to go through " as the bible refers to at 2 Tim 3: 1-7 :

Online Bible

  1But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here.2For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self‐assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal,3having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self‐control, fierce, without love of goodness,4betrayers, headstrong, puffed up [with pride], lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God,5having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.6For from these arise those men who slyly work their way into households and lead as their captives weak women loaded down with sins, led by various desires,7always learning and yet never able to come to an accurate knowledge of truth.

But I also believe three are better times  to come  . 
 I want to share some things I made in the last weeks ,  (except for when my glasses broke )  I 'm sorry for the poor quality of these pictures , I had to take several of them inside with flash .
I adhered this beautiuful backing paper to my card , but cut a window . The window closes by being held by the button  . To em bellish I used a die , cut with my double do , and somle rhinestones and a jewel hanger . Inside is a hand cut 3D image.

 Last week I got a present from someone , 3 small books with 3
D cutting files and also these 3D cutting labels : After I cut them , by hand , I inked the edges and embellished them a bit . A nice small gift , but much appreciated . I left some spaces blank to adjust to the occasion .

More snow men cards :

 And another window card , I cut out the area and adhered acylic sheet for the window , and used gold sticker lines on the acrylic to make the window . A 3D file and diecut swirl from MFT .


I also made  two gift sets : Two card holders with 4 cards , using my alphabet stamps and die cut machine. Each card is a single card that fits in the red die cut card holder that was cut with my die cuts and double do .

 I embellished the front cover more after I took the picture , but wasn't able to picture it again .

 My second set :

 As you see here I have spilled some ink , stamping the snowflake , it is very hard to stamp clearly , lying down , as I can not sit long enough .

The back of this card :

So this is it , I hope you enjoy you're holiday's and I hope to be back with some more paper crafts . A never ending card and a mini album are what I have in mind . Till then, take care ,

Hugs, Rosa
