Warm Winter Wishes

Okay, don't hate me because I did this, but I started my Christmas cards last weekend! I personalized the snowflake from Merry Little Christmas from JustRite Stampers. I had to use the snowflake on this year's cards because we are both snowmobiling now. Since I had all the letters in place on the 2" wooden stamper, I stamped out enough for this year's cards.

I cut out the 2" circle with the circle nestabilities, added a layer slightly bigger and mounted both onto a scalloped circle. Then I used the Impressabilities Snowflake to make the embossed background onto Soft Sky cardstock. I sponged it using Blue Bayou ink. Then I felt that it needed something else but I wanted to be sure that I would have enough supplies to replicate this on the rest of the cards. So I dug through my supplies and I found these SU Snowflake die cuts that my stamping friend Mary sent to me a while ago. Perfect! Then I added a small pearl to the center of the snowflake and viola, it's done!

Paper: PTI White, GP White, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou

  1. This is so cute and creative! I love snowflake behind the image!

  2. Very pretty! I'm sure it'll look even better when I get mine through the mail and see it in person ;-)

  3. I think it's terrific that you got started on your holiday cards. I may make one or two for a holiday themed challenge, but honestly, otherwise I just can't get motivated to even think about holiday cards until at least November. Then of course I scramble to get them done in time and curse myself for not starting sooner!

    I love how you personalized your card with the Just Rite stamps. Fab!

  4. Very nice! The snowflake really made the card! TFS

  5. What a gorgeous holiday card ... and I love the idea of using the JustRite stamper to get lots done at one time.
