Nordic Noel in the snow



Sometimes things don't work out as you had planned, and that's okay! It may turn out better! I think so in this case. :)


I had wanted to make a shaker card with my Nordic Noel reindeer but found the nestabilities frame was just too narrow to make it work. I put it aside but I loved this panel. Then the idea hit me to add some frosted snow (another jar I've had sitting around for over 4 years - I added some water and it was good as new!) and I colored a small pearl with a red copic marker for his nose! Other than the ribbon and "snow", all supplies are from a•muse studio. Oops! The Kraft paper is Recollections from Michaels but I have to say I love the Kraft from a•s - it has little flecks in it and is beautiful! I've already managed to work my way through a pack of it so it's definately going on my next order...tee hee...

Congratulations to Susan! You were my winner for my paper blog candy - please send me your address and I'll get this paper in the mail so you can start crafting!
