There's something exciting for me about the "chaos" of a major snowstorm. No school for my daughter today. A breathtaking blanket of white. Not a peep from a snow plow until late this afternoon. My husband, daughter and I were hostages in our own home for the last 24 hours. We survived with a fire and an old movie . . . quite delightful.
As I wrap up my holiday card production line, I want to share some of my favorite card ideas. Today's card is especially easy and the PERFECT TOUCH comes from Stampin' Up!'s Little Felt Flurries (113697).
I have had a ball with these crisp and pretty darlings on many of my projects. There are 69 snowflakes, 23 different designs in 3 colors (Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red and Whisper White). TIP: They range in size from 1.25" to 2.5". I used the largest size for these three cards.
Stamp Set: All Holidays (109397)
Paper: Baja Breeze (111352), Very Vanilla (101650), Riding Hood Red (111348)
Ink: Riding Hood Red (111836)
Cool Tools: Paper Piercer and Template (Stampin' Up! Crafter's Tool Kit, 104310), Big Shot Die-Cut Machine (113439), Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing Folder
The Perfect Touch: Little Felt Flurries (113697), 1 1/4" Riding Hood Red/Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon (113099), Circle Rhinestone Brads (Ice, 109111, and Fire, 109110).
This sample shows an alternate way to play with a felt flurry (again, the largest of the Little Felt Flurries). The background is similar to one I created over Thanksgiving using a 1" Circle Punch (Very Vanilla Circles over Riding Hood Red card base). The Chocolate Chip Rub-On is from Stampin' Up! Word Flurries (111417) and the brads are Antique Brass from the Vintage collection (109109).
