I wanted a winter card (because SUPPOSEDLY we are still in winter,,,,even if my thermometer says 84 degrees), but I didn't want Christmassy,,,,,,so here's what I came up with!
First I cut and embossed the bottom of my white 5x7 card base with a spellbinders Edgabilities. Then I embossed my card stock base with a snowflake embossing folder. I cut a 2010 snowflake pendant out of my base and then off set another die cut onto the negative and backed the negative with more winter blue paper. I used winter blue and white banners on the left,and Justrite Stamps for the center of my snow flake and the lower right for my sentiment. Finally, I cut and embossed a strip of white cardstock with the same edgabilities and the same embossing folder and placed it across the top of my card. A bow, some blue dew drops and a hint of sparkle, and she's done!
