The inspiration for today's post is the weather! It's been so hot here this week that I have been having some wishful thoughts about Christmas weather! Hello there! Thanks for stopping by to check out my project for Freshly Made Sketches: Edited to add that I was selected as one of the "perfect princesses" by Allisa from Freshly Made Sketches for this challenge!!
Can you blame me really? With so many wonderful products in the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog, I just can't wait to craft for Christmas!
I am very pleased with the sketch this week, this card came together in no time at all. I am particularly happy with the option to include whatever shape my heart desires, I just love options! I immediately chose to use the new Snow Flurry Bigz Die in silver glimmer paper. Nothing like a sparkly snowflake at Christmastime! (I wouldn't really know, I live in Southern California, but I can dream!)
I used the new Core'dinations cardstock in Cherry Cobbler, I love the subtle texture it has. A few snippits of Snow Festival DSP, cut into banners because lately it has been all about banners for me. Hmmm, it was a bit plain on the Whisper White cardstock so I ran another piece through my Big Shot with the Argyle Emobossing Folder to add a bit of interest to the background.
Lastly, a designer button in Cherry Cobbler and this Christmas Card is ready to drop in the mail! Okay...maybe I will wait for a few months...
