Holiday Blessings

I LOVE the holidays!  What a wonderful time of the year!  When I saw this stamp, I fell in LOVE!  It reminds me of a Christmas sweater.  So first I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler and then went "ewe" that is not the look I was "looking" for.  It just doesn't look right.  Maybe I should have tried Real Red but my next thought was Night of Navy because of the snowflakes!  I love using silver and Night of Navy during the winter months.  Which will be tricky this year because we have a lot of great gold items in our holiday collection!

On this card I used Stampin' up's Whisper White Notecards (yep, same kind of card I used on the thankful card earlier this week! I'm telling you- these little cards are so worth it!)

Stamp set used was Six Sayings-- hostess exclusive!  (contact me to book your workshop or private class!  We could even make a stack of THIS card at your private class!)

I use the corner rounder punch on the envelope punch board to round the edges, but get this... the holiday catalog has a fantastic new corner punch!  Check it out...

Next I embellished with a quarter inch strip of Night of Navy cardstock and my new favorite embellishment, the silver metallic thread.

And no project is complete without dimensionals AND some bling!  So I used the silver sparkle dazzling details to put a little silver sparkle on the snowflakes.  A nice little touch! 

Sidenote... when you've put a wet glittery substance on your card, it is best to remember to let it dry before you lay anything on top.  I ended up with a bluish glittery substance on my envelope... not sure how to cover up that one.  Made with love I suppose ;)  We all make mistakes.
