May 2022 Get Cracking on Christmas

Hello everyone!

It’s the third Thursday of the month AGAIN (!) and so it’s time for me to play along with Jenn Shurkus’s ‘Get Cracking on Christmas’. Today I’m using the trend from this week’s Just Us Girls challenge – the trend is shaped cards.

I know that I have some hexagon cards from back in the day when I had a stack of shaped card bases. Annoyingly I spent most of my crafty time today searching for said cards…. without success. But I did find this tag card so figured that would have to do.

I smooshed some Salvaged Patina distress ink onto the card base and then splattered some Brushed Pewter Mica Spray on top. While that was drying, I assembled my snowflake using Birch Press Design’s Frosty Flake set. Inspired by Caly Person, I added a couple of white layers to the back to increase the depth – love this idea, it’s so effective.

I adhered the snowflake to the base and added a few dew drops and a My Favorite Things sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Your tag card is the perfect stage for the star-of-the-show snowflake! Lovely colours and yes, the white layers add wonderful depth and dimension! Thank you for playing along at Just Us Girls!


  2. Lucie… this is a beautiful! I have always loved the layered Birch Press designs. The bit of smooshed blue in the background is a lovely touch. Thanks so much for joining and sharing at Just Us Girls!
