Make It Monday #151 and Curtain call

Betsy Feldman shows us a cool technique on this weeks Make It Monday. She calls it "Drop Shadow Die Cuts". Its simple, yet effective. I had to try it.....

Looks cool right? All die cuts and stamps are Papertrey, except the "happy" - that's from Paper Smooches. 

I am also playing in the Curtain call challenge this week. The delicious inspiration photo is below.

Guess what the centers of my flowers are.........

......you got it! 
Mini Marshmallows

I am also linking this card with:
Creative Friday -  Kraft
Snippets Playground  - everything die cut is made with snippets

And just to show you the snow we had 2 days ago - now imagine that with an additional layer of perhaps 6 inches of heavy, wet snow followed by icy rain.......

Stay warm!

Love your card. Marshmallows?? :)

The snow and ice just keep on coming, don't they?? Winter is not letting up here in Ohio, either. More snow on the way this weekend. Stay warm and safe!

Das sieht aber richtig gut aus bei euch. Hier ist alles braun und grau. so überhaupt nicht winterlich. Schade. Hoffentlich kommt das nicht erst im März oder gar April!!!! Da möchte ich dann doch schon Frühling haben. Zum Glück kann das niemand beeinflussen.

Susanne Vargas said...

That drop shadow technique looks cool! Have to try that! And marshmallows??? Too funny!
We got about 10in of glittery, powdery snow! Fortunately no icy rain so far!
Stay safe!

Gorgeous birthday card.

Lovely snow picture. Would rather have snow than the persistent rain we've got!

Liebe Cornelia,
deine Karte ist genial! Wunderschön wie du die Farben genutzt hast!
Auch wenn sich deine Beschreibung des Wetters eklig anhört, ist das Foto wunderschön!

Your photo looks really pretty, but also really cold. I love your card and think you captured the essence of the inspiration photo very well!

Very cute card! I think we have a break from the snow for a few days.....until mid-week! My poor bush branches too are so heavy from the snow and ice.

Kim Heggins said...

Wow...what a photo, that belongs on a Christmas card if you want my opinion. Just stunning! Now on to your card, it is so sweet...I love your take on the challenge, just lovely!

Rosmarie said...

So gefällt mir Schnee richtig gut!! Bei anderen, vor deren Haustür ;-) *kicher*
Die Karte ist perfekt! Schön, wie du alles nach rechts versetzt hast um Tiefe in die Szene zu bekommen!
....die Marshmallows sind genial!!
