Tis' The Season...Take Two


Happy Monday all! Hope your week is off to a wonderful start. Today I share with you, round two of Christmas Stampin' All Year Long's sketch challenge. Gotta love this rounds sketch. When I first saw it I knew instantly what it was, I was going to create.

Although it's kinda hard to tell, the blue stock has a very beautiful frosted shimmer to it. I've had this piece for a while now and wasn't quite sure if I wanted to use it. In other words...I wasn't sure if I was ready to actually let it go (lol). Using one of my snowflakes CB Embossing folder, I created the background on a piece of white card stock, to off set the design I had in mind...
snowflakes. To create the silver snowflakes, the "Joy" sentiment, & the silver spots on the scalloped strip, I used my SU stamp set... "The Snowflake Spot", VersaMark (white), and silver embossing powder.

Within the stamped and embossed snowflakes, I then added some light blue gem stones. I actually like how this card turned out and the simplicity of it, that I may create multiples, using different colored shimmers. What do you think!?!

For more inspiration, pop on over to Christmas Stampin' All Year Long and check out all the awesome creations done, by the rest of our blog members. Hope you will join in on the fun. Till then...happy stampin'. Aloha and God bless!!

hugs in Jesus~
