As I was laying in bed the other night, I couldn't seem to turn my mind to sleep mode. I'd been stamping before bed and that is a problem. Instead of sleeping, the gray matter is still clicking along with color ideas, stamps, and all sorts of creative thoughts and isn't ready to settle down yet!!. One of the ideas that was percolating around in there was using the new snowflake die with Silver Glimmer paper and making a totally glitzy Christmas card. I usually go for more of an understated look, but that sure doesn't fit this card at all! Here's what I came up with for my over-the-top-glitz card...
Ink: Bravo Burgundy
Paper: Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper
Accessories: Big Shot and Snow Flurry Bigz Die, Framed Tulips TIEF, Piercing Tool and Mat, and Antique Brads
I wanted to keep things really simple, so the only other adornment is the Framed Tulips embossing around the edge of the cardfront. I did this on a separate layer so it would be a little sturdier holding up the snowflakes.
Hope this puts you in the mood for the upcoming holidays. It sure got me thinking about it! Have a fun week. With babysitting, Hostess Club, and meeting at church this week, it's gonna be just a little crazy. Hope I can squeeze in a little time for stamping too! Sharon
