I pulled out my Christmas Lodge from Stampin’ Up and stamped it SU whisper white cardstock and started coloring it. First I just wanted to color it brown (using markets and blender pen) then it looked so boring…haha so I colored/outlined the trims in red, it made a huge differences. As I was doing that, I wanted to dazzle the snow, so I used Stampin’ Up dazzling. As I was doing that, I was like…hmmm..it’ll be a good idea to cut it out and add a “snowing” background using Polka dot emboss folder from Stampin’ Up and liquid pearl-ed each dots. THEN I was thinking, maybe I should frame it, so I created a frame using one of Spellbinder die cut. Then used Stampin’ Up Retired Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper – it’s one of my favorite holiday papers because it’s the simplicity of the paper that I love plus, it really screams out CHRISTMAS. Sadly it’s a retired paper, BUT Stampin’ Up always out-do-itself and creates wonderful Christmas (as well as others) designer series papers I always can’t wait to get my hands on. Then added a little trim on top of the card with a nice silver ribbon.
Then finished it with More Merry Message stamp set from Stampin’ Up sentiment “a very merry Christmas to you….” This stamp set has a lot of good choices if you are looking for great Christmas sentiment varieties. And a snowflake punch from Mathra Stewart with a rhinestone. AND of course, can't forget to add a bow, so I added a nice green color satin bow and some liquid pearls and of course more pearls!!!
Here’s a closer look of the card…
