Make It Monday: Feels Like Frost Bookmark

Wow! Did I underestimate the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper (DSP)! It's gorgeous with all its winter photo realistic backgrounds on one side and silver/white foil patterns on the reverse. 

For this week's Make It Monday, I thought I would share this quick and easy bookmark using this DSP. Would make a great teacher gift or stocking stuffer for your favorite reader.

With this DSP, it's easy to make each bookmark unique just like a snowflake! 


Sentiment and accent background from the So Many Stars stamp set.

Make It Monday: Shadowbox Snowman Card

I love dimensional cards! They add an unexpected wow factor for the recipient. Two of my favorite dimensional fun folds are the bridge-fold and the shadowbox.

Just push the winter scene to one side to lay flat. :-)

I'll be showcasing projects you can make for the Christmas holiday season thru 12/16/19.  Join my email newsletter and receive an exclusive printable PDF tutorial of these projects in your inbox each week!
