Letter of the Day - Letter F

Hello My crafty friends!!
Did you all get to see all the amazing projects on this
There were lots of inspiring ideas.

Well today is the first time I signed up
for Letter of the day!!
For the letter of the day, we can use
a cartridge or a cut that begins with that letter.
I chose to use the brand new Fontopia cartridge.
This cartirdge is so much more than a font cartridge.
It has some really great card cuts and graphics.
I made a very simple card today.
I was having trouble cutting the intricate
crest layers, so I did not use the top layer.
(I believe my problem was my mat was
not sticky enough so the paper kept coming up)
I chose the card from page 43
Here is the page from the handbook

I know some of you may say it is too early
for Christmas cards.  But the sooner
I start, the sooner I will be done!!
Hopefully I will not be still making
cards 2 weeks before christmas!!
The paper is from
DCWV, and the Snowman
is a Jolee's embellishment.

This was my original card, but
 I thought it needed more!!
I added some silver stickles
and some gems.
You cannot see all the sparkle this card has!!

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from
"Have a Cool Yule" from Crafty Sprouts.

If you have not taken a look Fontopia
please check out the handbook
And if you want to buy it
you can order it HERE.
Erica has the best prices!!
