David, mrstama:
my sister is an avid scrapbooker, and i used her embossing tools: a stylus, and an embossing plate (i think that's what it's called?), to make the snowflakes.

this is the stylus.

this is the plate thingy.

basically, you hold the paper over the design plate up to a window (or use a lightbox) so you can see through the paper, and follow the grooves on the plate with the stylus. incredibly simple. i cut around the snowflake, adhered it to the front of the card. i traced around the white square with a black pen, and wrote the rest of the card with a metallic pen. soooo easy. Smiley

i think you can pick up these tools up at michael's, in the paper crafts aisle.

2  cards and mini cakes! in Winter Holidays by annieee on: December 28, 2004 12:46:36 PM
For my coworkers this year, I made them each a little card and a mini 4" double layer chocolate fudge cake. The cards were really simple to make, but the cakes took FOREVER. (I'd never baked/frosted cakes before, and ironically, I thought it'd be a piece of cake. hardy har har)

The front of the card featured an embossed snowflake and the recipient's name.

The inside. blah blah blah.

This is what each of the cakes looked like (placed inside the box already)

...and this is the whole finished package, yay!

*x-posted on glitter, sorry.
