Good morning and welcome crafty friends!
It's time for a new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH!
Yours truly is hosting and I came up with a 
Tic/Tac/Toe board for you to create from:

For my card, I've used the center column:
Embossing Folders/ Stamps over 3 yrs old/ Slimline card.

I don't know if there is such a thing as a slimline sized embossing folder,
but I got around that using a standard sized one by simply adding
a bit of designer paper on top of the panel that didn't get embossed.
The packaging that the snowman and snowflakes came from is dated
2011. The sentiment packaging is dated 2013. On the inside,
that stamp set is from 2013:

I added a bit of snowy dimension to ground the snowman:

I hope that you'll play along in our Tic/Tac/Toe challenge 
this fortnight at Shopping Our Stash! Just be sure to let us know
which row, column, or diagonal you used because it may not
be easily recognizable. For more amazing creations, simply 
check out what my teammates made to inspire you!

  1. oh how i looooove everything about this beautiful card, chris! what a brilliant combination of elements! (i'm making a mental note that you can do smaller images on their own as SLIMLINE cards!!!)

  2. This is some kind of ADORABLE, the snowman is so cute and the design is great. I saw a tutorial on how to make your regular folders to work with slimline, but the design needs to be repetative so you can line the design up and make sure not to go too far as to flatten the first embossing, (I only talk the talk haven't tried it) Awesome slimline card!!!

  3. Look at that cutie snowman! And I've had that same SSS set for a long time too, lol. This is such a sweet card!

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
