Peaceful Flurries

Here's a simple holiday card. . . . This was a card we made at my Holiday Stamp a Stack, and I'm making up a few more to send out this year too.  

I ran Shimmery White card stock through the Big Shot with the new Northern Flurry Embossing Folder (in the Holiday Mini Catalog).  I mounted that on a Marina Mist base and added a few of the Rhinestones to the center of the snowflakes.  For the sentiment I stamped with Marina Mist on Shimmery White (stamp set is All Holidays) and then punched it out with the Decorative Label punch.  I punched a second Decorative Label piece from Marina Mist card stock, and then cut the piece in half lengthwise.  I adhered the pieces to the back of the white piece so that the Marina Mist shows a bit on the top and bottom to give a nice framed edge.  

I hope that all of your holiday preparations are going well!  This week I'm working on my Christmas cards.  :-) 

Stamps:  All Holidays
Ink:  Marina Mist
Paper:  Shimmery White, Marina Mist
Accessories:  Rhinestones, Decorative Label punch, Marina Mist grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals

Really simple, but really elegant. I love blue and white together for holiday cards.
