Whew! I'm finally back to making some cards! It's been a busy week with the hustle and bustle of the season and trying to get things accomplished before Christmas! This is my brand new stamp I just received from a friend and I LOVE him (He's available at 7KidsCollegeFund.com you should get one for yourself!). I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday and I love how it turned out. The paper I used is My Minds Eye Glitter Christmas stack from last year and I love the browns and blues together. The circle sentiment was a digital freebie offered by Bizzy Bec's Store Blog and I've used these for most of my Christmas cards this year - I love them! The snowflakes are actually buttons I found at Joanns and I thought they worked perfectly for this project. I colored up Froosty and added Diamond stickles just about everywhere - I love how sparkly this card is! I then inked the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink to coordinate with the papers. I cut the circle sentiments out with my Circle Spellbinders, which can be found at StampingScrapping.com. Finally, I added turquoise bling to the center of the snowflakes.
Here's another angle:
For the inside, I added more of the same designer paper, added another ribbon, some more of the snowflake buttons and more bling!
