T is for Tiny

Good morning, it is time for another ABC Christmas Challenge and this time we have a fun one for you. Our theme this week is
T is for Tiny
For this challenge we want you to make a set of 4 tiny cards or tags.

We are sponsored this week by our very own Lacey with her wonderful store Stamp and Create.

For any of you who have not yet been by her shop you must pop by for a visit. She carries a wonderful selection of goodies for your card making and you are sure to find something you love.
For my cards this week I have pulled out this wonderful snowflake that I purchased a few years ago, I don't believe that it saw any ink last year so it was time for it to be put to use again.

To create the mottled shimmery effect on the snowflake I have inked by stamp with embossing ink and then walked it through a palette of Distress inks that I had laid out on my craft mat. I then sprinkled with Holographic embossing powder and hit it with my heat gun.

To create the cards I have used a Cuttlebug folder to create the snowflake embossed mats. Then layered with a doily punched from a Marianne Creatables die. The snowflake image and final mat were cut using my nesties.

I hope that you will join us with your own tiny cards and tags. I look forward to seeing your beautiful creations.  Before you head off to start crafting be sure to stop by the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog and see the rest of the gorgeous DT cards.

I will be entering these cards into the following challenges:
