"Wish Big" by Cherie Nymeyer
Supply List - Cardstock: Stampin' Up; Patterned Paper: Echo Park; Stamp: La La Land Crafts and Stampin' Up; Markers: Copic; Ink: Stampin' Up; Jewels: Kaiser Craft; Punch: Fiskars; Pen: American Crafts

Variation #1 - Instead of embellishments hanging from the top of the design, I hand drew a burst with white pen and put jewels at each point.

Variation #2 - I put my greeting smaller and off to the side instead of across the whole card.

Variation #3 - I added a stamped image to the left side instead of hanging snowflakes across the whole card.

Variation #4 - To complete the card, I added a hand drawn border along the top and bottom of the card.

"Brrr" by Carolyn Wolff
Supply List - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: Echo Park; Die-cut SVG Files: Kerri Bradford Studio; Metal Snowflakes: Darcie; Ink: Ranger Distress Ink; Floss: DMC; Clear Gems: Zva Creative; Bakers Twine: Jillibean Soup

Variation #1 – I used this card sketch to create a two-page layout. I used the hanging snowflakes shown in the sketch as a focal point on my page. I layered some printable embellishments and added some clear gems to the center of each one.

Variation #2 – I used the borders shown on the top and bottom of the card sketch and implemented them on my layout. 

Variation #3 – I added the snowman and the mittens using cutting files for my Cricut machine.

Variation #4 – I placed my ‘message’ to the left of the hanging snowflakes instead of overlapping it as it was shown in the sketch.
