Mixed Medley Christmas

Hey Stampers,

It has happened. Of course, right before Christmas, my house has caught a cold. Stuffed up noses, sneezing, watery eyes, over tired, coughs ... the whole 9 yards. So, not a lot of energy to do any stamping or the other million things I have to do to prepare for Christmas ! Luckily I have some projects on my computer that I haven't shown you yet, so that is what I am choosing from today !! My project today is a CASE of a card by Amy O'Neill (www.amyoneillblog.com). I loved the card SO much I just had to make one of my own !! Have a look !! 


Isn't that so pretty !?! For some reason, I love when pink is used on Christmas cards ! LOL This color combo is Raspberry Ripple, Pretty in Pink, Baja Breeze and Gumball Green. Don't they look so nice together ?? A great combo for anytime of year ! The cute snowflakes are from the Hostess set Mixed Medley. They were the punched out with the 1-1/4" Scallop Circle Punch. They then got layer onto a 1-3/8" Circle of Silver Slimmer paper. I love how a little bit of that stuff still makes a BIG impact ! The DSP layer is from the Snow Festival paper pack. Love all of those snowflakes !! My sentiment is from the essential More Merry Messages stamp set, and was stamped in Gumball Green onto a strip of Whisper White. I then put a Dotted Scallop Border punch in Raspberry Ripple on each edge. That punch is so great to add a bit something extra. And of course, the delicious 3/8" Gumball Green Stitched Satin ribbon is the perfect ribbon for this card ! Love that stuff !!

Well, I hope you enjoyed my card today !! Thanks a lot for dropping by and Happy Stamping !!
