This holiday season, I think snowflakes are going to be big for me. I'm typically a summer girl and like hot temperatures best, but this year I'm going to embrace the cold with mittens and scarves and hope that we get some beautiful snow.
For today's card, I created a pretty snowflake card using the JustRite set called Christmas Ensemble.The images in this set include border and center images which you can mix and match any way you want. I chose to stamp the snowflake center and the snowflake border on two separate colors of cardstock. I layered up all the images with Spellbinder's Circle Dies and Scallop Dies to create the main focal point of the card.
I'm loving the holiday papers from Cosmo Cricket this year also. They have such a rich, vintage look to them. I paired some of their patterned paper from an 8" x 8" pack along with a *let it snow* journaling piece. I finished off my card with some cream colored ribbon and pretty little pearl and sparkly sequins on the snowflake.
I'm adding all my cards to a holiday basket along with envelopes so that I can just pick and choose a card as I need one. Or if my friends and family needs cards, they can sit a spell and pick out a few of their favorites. I also like to have holiday themed cards on hand for thank you notes, etc. Working on the cards little by little helps to build up a good sized stash by the time December rolls around.
Hope you're having a fantastic weekend. It's chilly here in Kansas but beautiful and sunny.
