Anything But A Card

I wanted to make this ever since I saw the Glimmer Paper in the new Summer Mini Catalogue and how please was I to see that this week the Friday Mash Up was to make something wintry, and over at Stampin' Royalty the challenge was to make 'anything but a card' ...  perfect.  

Now the photo just doesn't do them justice, but they are so pretty in real life and catch the light beautifully. I can't wait to wear them as my Christmas earrings this year.

To make them was super easy, I just punched 4 snowflakes using the Doily Triple Layer punch from the Silver Glimmer Paper.  I adhered these back to back to make two snowflakes (I think they look far more like snowflakes than doilies!!!).  I grabbed a few supplies that I had in storage from my jewellery making days and hey-presto ... a beautiful pair of glittery, wintry  Christmassy earrings.  

Happy Stamping
