Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas


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.

Freshly Made Sketches – Festive Flurry

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.

Here is the Freshly Made Sketch:




Festive Flurry & Freshly Made Sketches


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.
