Christmas--And Hanukkah--in July!!
I decided to get a jump on my holiday cards this year, and wanted at least some that were simple, easy, yet somewhat elegant,,,,,,,and also could be easily adapted to Christmas, Hanukkah and even non-religious folks :)
I had a 12x12 piece of cream paper with pre-printed gold snow flakes on it, and really went to town. I cut the paper to the proper card size, and then embossed with my Big shot using the Tim Holtz snowflake embossing folder. Then I added gems, pearls and ribbon to match.
I made blue for Hanukkah, pink and red for Christmas, and I plan on doing more!
But I ran out of the beautiful cream paper with the gold snowflakes,,,,,,,,
so,,,,,,,,,easy peasy, my husband was sweet enough to buy me some snowflake stamps (Inkadinkado) and I made my own with cream colored paper, and embossed just as I had the pre-printed paper,,,,,,,The one standing in the back is my own stamped paper,,,,,you can see the cream is a bit darker, but I am really happy with the way it came out! I plan on buying some silver ink to play with as well,,,,,,,,Hanukkah cards with silver ink and blue gems would look GORGEOUS, I think!
Hope you enjoyed!!!!!! And thanks for looking!!!!!!
