What could be better than red and green for me to work with for a Christmas card? And that exactly what Dynamic Duos, Pause Dream Enjoy, and CWC Cricut challenges wanted.
And then I found this GREAT sketch at Heart 2 Heart that is wide open for possibility!
So here is what I came up with:
I decided to use some long retired Mistletoe scraps to make this card. I love the look of vintage snowflakes in the red paper. This is one of our diecut cards, and I love them because that flap is fun to work with! I cut the snowflakes with the Art Philosophy cartridge, and I popped the middle one up to add some good dimension. If you look closely, I put some bitty green sparkles around the snowflakes. The sentiment is from the Christmas Card Chatter stamp set, and it's my favorite sentiment from that set. But my favorite part of this card is the layered ribbon. It is colonial white organdy and crocheted ribbon, and I will admit that I have been hoarding both of these for almost 3 years. I've used them sparingly here and there because they are my favorite ribbons of all time - especially when they are layered. The ribbon slide works well with the crocheted ribbon.
With all the snowflakes, this will also go into the snowflake challenge at Eclectic Ellapu.
How is your holiday season going? I'd love to hear about it! I've already told you that I think time is going way too quickly. I have so many ideas for classes and personal artwork, and I really need 36 hours in a day to implement all of them! Thanks for stopping to visit today!
