Arrrrrgh … the last few weeks before the holidays is NOT the time to be sick! Whatever this bug is that has decided to take up permanent residence in the family, has successfully zapped every ounce of energy from my body (not that there was much there to begin with). In a valiant attempt to get back to my blog (I’m sure ya’ll have missed me terribly!), I’m going to try to keep this short and sweet.
This is another card that was made at my holiday card stamp camp, inspired by many other creations I have seen. I have this thing for snowflakes, just can’t seem to get enough of them. When Stampin’ Up! released the Northern Flurry embossing folder, I swear my neighbors could hear me squeal with delight!
The snowflakes are embossed on vellum cardstock. The heavier weight of this paper didn’t shred during the embossing process and is still light enough to give the desired effect. I added several of the new self adhesive rhinestones in various sizes to give it a touch of bling, along with a bow made with matching satin ribbon. Did you notice the sentiment? I love how the new Decorative Label punch layers with the Holiday Windows movers and shapers die – perfect!
