Christmas Card No. 12

It's not Epiphany yet, so it's still totally legit to post Christmas cards! I got a bit behind with blogging them due to actual Christmas itself and with a cold that I've had for three weeks that has now turned into bronchitis. Thanks to some nice antibiotics I'm recovering though! And, Christmas was lovely. We had both of our sets of parents and my husband's brother. Delicious food, generous gift, wonderful company.
For this card, first I die cut the snowflake shape out of the pale blue layer. Then, I took a piece of cream cardstock and stamped it ALL over with snowflakes of various designs and colors and adhered that behind the pale blue shape so that the snowflake pattern shows through the snowflake cut out. The sentiment has three snowflakes around the words and I inked each of those in one of the three colors I used for the snowflake pattern; winter sky, cobalt, and silver. I tied ribbon around it and popped it up with foam tape. Viola!
Stamps: A Muse taste snowflakes and Martha Stewart Crafts Holiday snowflake set
Ink: A Muse winter sky and cobalt and Encore! Metallic silver
Paper: A Muse winter sky and vanilla cardstock
Misc.: A Muse snowflake trio die set, foam mounting tape, A Muse silver sheer organdy ribbon


  1. Clever! The multicolor snow behind the snowflake opening is very clever. Great card. I am enjoying your posts. Good to hear your feeling better.
