I love Christmas cards. I love making them and I love getting them especially when they are homemade. If you haven’t started your cards after my Twelve Days of Christmas Series I did November 1st – 12th, then you need to get moving (yes, I am bossy!). Just in case you need another idea, here is a card using the stamp called Merry Little Christmas. I stamped the background using the snowflakes from Festive Flurry in Illuminate Ink. I love that ink for snowflakes because it gives them a little shine. The shape on the top of the card was cut out in Marina Mist and Silver Glimmer Paper using a Big Shot die called Oval Accent Bigz Clear. If you cut it exactly in half you can make two cards with this design. I topped off the card with a Frosted Finishes Embellishment. These are so beautiful in person and is hard to capture in a picture. They just sparkle and shine when the light hits them.
Here is my entry for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week. I used the stamp set called Festive Flurry that has matching Framelits also called Festive Flurry. If you buy both in a Bundle you can save 15%. The set has four very large snowflakes that are so easy to cut out with the Framelits. There is no poking little pieces out which is one of the things I love about this set.
In the middle of the snowflake I put an embellishments called Frosted Finishes. These are really so beautiful in real life and it is hard to see just how sparkly they are in a picture. They are absolutely gorgeous.
By now I usually have a ton of Christmas cards to show you but I am having a hard time getting into the spirit this year. It is not that I don’t love all the new stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog. You will eventually see that I had to have a lot of them.
Freshly Made Sketches put out their weekly sketch so I decided to do something that has to do with the Holidays. I absolutely love the Frosted Finishes Embellishments in the Holiday Catalog. It is really hard to see how beautiful they are from a picture. They sparkly like crazy. You will love them! I used the stamp set called Festive Flurry which has beautiful snowflake shapes. They also have matching Framelits and you can buy both in a Bundle and save 15%. The “warm wishes” is from Snow Day which is the cute snowman set they have this year.
