Christmas Cheer …

Hello my Stampin’ Friends,

Wow … It’s cold outside today!  We’ve got -4 degree windchills …. burr!

Today I want to share another Silver and Gold card, simple and pretty.  Just a few steps to create…

000_0445

I taped together (on the back) the silver and gold blocks to create the background.  I then stamped the snowflake from “Festive Flurry” and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.

I embossed a separate snowflake and cut it out with the coordinating Framelits.

My “christmas cheer” greeting comes from the stamp set “Sweet Essentials”.

Now to finish off the card I added the Cherry Cobbler Bakers twine and a “Frosted Finishes Embellishment”.

White Christmas …

Hello my Stampin’ Friends,

OK … it is officially winter here!  Snow, slippery roads, and cold … I’m ready for spring!  However, I do love Thanksgiving and Christmas so I’ll hold out for those.

My card share today is a beautiful card that we made at our Holiday Retreat this year.   I think it’s my favorite of all the cards and projects we did (I love the look and the bling).

As you can see there are many layers here, but all done in Whisper White, which gives it that special look.  We used the “Beautifully Baroque” embossing folder to create some texture.

The “silver” embossed snowflake comes from the “Festive Flurry” stamp set found in the Holiday Catalog and can also be purchased in a bundle with the coordinating framelits.  The snowflake was centered on the stunning “Silver Glimmer” Paper which in now on sale!  Click on any of the highlighted items to see what is included in that stamp set.

Our greeting “Christmas Cheer” comes from the stamp set “Sweet Essentials” found on page 41 of our catalog.  I decides to create a banner for the greeting so it would stand out more.

Quite simple and very elegant with some holiday bling, you can see why I love this card.  Hope you enjoyed it as well.
