Let it snow!

No, it's not snowing here but my card is loaded with snowflakes!! It's not necessarily a Christmas card but that's probably what I'm make it with whatever text I used inside. The background was made using a Cuttlebug embossing folder on my Wizard machine. The paper is by Core'Dinations and is navy on one side and light blue on the other so when sanded the light blue shows! I like this almost as much as the DCWV white core cardstock! Anyway, on to the card...

I had some dark red glossy scraps that I need to use so it is the layer behind the embossed snowflakes and the punched scallop circle made with the Giga Scallop Circle punch and sanded the edges a bit so it would stand out more. I stamped the red circles (Christmas Circles set) in Bordeaux PH ink, punched out using the Mega Circle punch then stamped with the little snowflake from the Ornamental Snowflakes set. I then punched the little snowflake circle from the Christmas Circles set with Agean Blue VM ink, and punched out it with the Extra Jumbo Circle punch. The ribbon is wide sheer red purchased from a local store.

Here you can see I used my Stardust Clear Gel pen on the centers of the snowflakes plus I used it on some of the embossed snowflakes. The pen really adds some pizazz and bling to stamped images!! I think I mentioned in a previous post how much I like it. LOL!

So, are you getting your Christmas cards made? Christmas is just next month!! Remember that I will have a blog drawing for 2 dozen cards with envelopes soon!!

I really appreciate your comments when you see something you like. Just click on the itty bitty red "comments" listed at the bottom of the post and it'll open a new window for you to leave your comment! Sometimes Blogger can get funky and you'll need to refresh your screen to get the info or see things in the sidebar. Beats me what happens and it is frustrating. Also, at the bottom of the left sidebar is a section called "Labels". There you can find posts on a certain theme or "label" that you want to see. I try to make my blog user friendly and if you have an idea to help please let me know. There is even a "chat box" and a search box for your use.
