Snowflake Soiree & Festival of Prints

Hey Stampers !!

It's the weekend !! Fun times !! I am really hoping to be able to get some stamping done either tonight or tomorrow. It is my "me time" and I really miss it when I get busy !! So I always try to make the time for some relaxation in my craft room !! Hope you do too !! My card today is yet another Christmas card. I am doing SO well with my Christmas cards this year !! I have almost half of them done already !! I try to have them all done well before December comes so I can send them off early. Hope it works this year !! LOL This card is semi-cased from a card I saw over on Amy Storrie's blog ( Her card is really beautiful, but I decided to step it up a bit and make it my own instead of copying her. LOL Have a look, what do you think ??

I love how it turned out !! The color combo I used was pulled from the Festival of Prints DSP that I used. This DSP is SO great !! It is a small stack of 12 different double sided patterns, and you get 48 sheets !! Thats 4 of each pattern !! And they are the perfect "card" size of 4-1/2" x 6-1/2" !! I love it and  I am using my stack like crazy. I stamped the larger snowflake in Bashful Blue onto Very Vanilla cardstock and then stamped the Merry in Cherry Cobbler on top. This then got cut out using the Window Frames framelits. The small snowflake was stamped in Island Indigo and then die cut with a smaller Window Frame. So pretty !! The flakes fit perfectly and look like they were made for these great framelits !!

I stamped the largest snowflake in Cherry Cobbler ink all over the Cherry Cobbler card base. Then I added the large banner going across from the DSP. The 2 smaller banners were added next; one is the back side of the main pattern of DSP and the other is a piece of Island Indigo ran through the Northern Flurry embossing folder. I love that folder !! So beautiful. Then I took the Dazzling Details glitter glue and smooshed it over the snowflakes with my finger. It just highlights the embossed pieces so nicely !! A tad bit messy on my finger, but totally worth it !! LOL

I love how this card turned out !! The color combo of Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo and Bashful Blue is SO beautiful. I plan on using it a lot this Holiday Season !! Hope you like it too !! Thanks for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
