It's snowing today, oldie style this Friday.

Good morning to you and how are you this Friday?  Where did that week go?
I'm sure time is speeding up and no one has told me.  Ever get that feeling?

It's Friday so you know what that means today I share an old crafty project with you.  Why not join me too?
I'd love to see your old projects, just leave a wee comment below and then I can link over to you and share the joy of crafting.

My project for today is a little cold, still looking at festive cards, how about a little snow?

And from a jaunty little angle so you can see the box effect.

I have used Core-dinations card stock together with MME 12 days of Christmas.  The snowflake die is Create a flake 4 and the sentiment is by Kirsty Wiseman Many Greetings.  Bling and ribbon from my stash.

Did I mention that I LOVE this colour!  

This card is 5 x 10 1/2" in size and it has a 1/2" spine down the middle.  On the front of the card I have scored two inner squares, the outer 3/4" and then a further 1/2" in from that point.  The squares are then cut across the diagonal and folded back to make the frame.  I then attack a 3 1/2" square to the inner box and on the reverse inside the card to hide the workings.  Time to decorate!

Have you made a box card? 
I don't make them very often but do enjoy the process when I do. 

It only remains for me to thank you for joining in with me today, I shall visit all that let me know you are playing along. 
I look forwards to seeing what oldie you have on offer.
Wishing you all the very best for the coming weekend.  No plans here, as yet but we are always when organising to do something.    Have a good one!

Yours is very lovely, and your colour choice is fab.

This is a wonderful oldie the style and the colour. Talking of snow....last week I met at least 6 brand new snow ploughs heading up the A1, perhaps they're expecting to need them! Carol x

That snowflake die is stunning and looks wonderful as the centre piece for your box card. I've made a couple in my time but not recently. Maybe we should give them a come back?
