Getting into the holiday spirit!

Well I wanted to decorate my house for the holidays this weekend but that didn’t happen.  I ran out of weekend 😦  That seems to happen a lot!!!  I need more weekend in my life!  lol

I was able to sneak in some fun stamping and this is one of the lovelies I created.  This was sooo easy and came together in just a few minutes, perfect for a last minute Christmas card for someone special.  I love how Stampin’ Up makes it so easy to create something lovely in just a few minutes!

Snowflake Sentiments Stampin' Up

Snowflake Sentiments Stampin' Up

Creative Tips:

  1.  This card features Designer Series Paper from the Be Merry DSP package.  I needed the paper to be slightly toned down and the perfect answer to that was vellum!  The vellum has the large snowflakes from Snowflake Sentiments white embossed on it, this gives a soft muted glow to the paper underneath.
  2. Use what works in your stash…in this case, my ribbon is Real Red and Garden Green but I used Cherry Cobbler ink for the sentiment and Tranquil Tide for the trees.  The whole card works even with these color differences since the lines of color in the ribbon are so tiny and delicate.
  3. You know what makes this card come together so fast?  The dies!  Those sweet trees and adorable deer add just the right embellishment to finish the card 🙂
