January Altered Rolodex Swap

Hi everyone!!! Just wanted to share a quick post today of a Rolodex I created for a swap I'm in on Swap-bot. The theme of the rolo could be anything vintage so I choose to go with something along the lines of snow...since it has been cold around here...brrr ;-)


I used my Sizzix Card, Telephone & Address die to cut out my Rolodex cards...I had to make one for myself too... to me this is a lot easier than trying to actually alter a rolo card that you purchase at a office supply place. :-) I also used cardstock, bits of scrapbook paper, lace, baker's twine, old buttons and Dew Drops. The vintage sheet of music I used my Sizzlets Merry Details die to cut out snowflakes. The snowman image I got from Vintage Image Crafts on Facebook. If you are on Facebook go over to their page and like them. There is tons upon tons of images that you can download and the best part it is FREE :-)

    
I also inked all of the edges and I used Crystal Stickles on the image to give it that snowy glittery look.


The back of the card I download the 2013 calendar from Crafty Secrets and cut out the January calendar. I used my printer to print out the words snow day and my name which I adhered to the rolo. Wa-laa!!! Finished!!! :-) Now all I need is a Rolodex holder!!! :-)
Thanks for stopping by and I hope this inspires you to create something fun!!!
