One Final Card for the Holidays

Can you believe it! Tomorrow will be Christmas eve! I am sure everyone is busy doing last minute preparations for the big feast with family and friends. I would just like to wish you all a JOYFUL MERRY CHRISTMAS and hope the the coming year will bring lots of happiness.

I have prepared one last card for this Holiday season. Background for this card was made using the Medium Filigree Snowflake. I first stamped the image of the snowflake on the plastic sheet that comes with the Stamp-a-ma-jig system. I then proceeded to stamp my first snowflake on the edge of my white cs with Pearlescent Sky Blue Brilliance Ink. Then I positioned the plastic sheet as a guide for my second snowflake as well as the Stamp-a-ma-jig and then stamped my second snowflake. I used this same method for the remaining snowflakes that I used for the background of my card. I used another stamp from DRS Designs for the sentiment which is the Yesteryear Christmas Greeting. This was stamped on white cs with the same ink used for the background then heat embossed with Opalescent embossing powder. Cut the sentiment using a square scallop die from Spellbinders, then pierced holes on each of the scallops and threaded the loops with Blue Scrappers Floss. This was then mounted on a shiny blue cs that was cut using the Fleur De Lis Pendant Die. Used some white half pearls on the center of 4 of the Snowflakes.

Once more before I finish this post - MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR to all.
