For today’s hop, I created a very simple holiday card using Snowflake Soiree stamp set (Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog).  The stunning snowflakes and sentiment were heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

I added a Vintage Faceted Designer Button on one of the snowflakes for sparkle and a yummy piece of Very Vanilla 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon for polish.

  1. What are the measurements of the snowflake card? It is absolutely beautiful!!!

  2. Hi, Mary. It took me two days (during my SU business hours) to get through the blog hop. I was so impressed, so inspired, and so sidetracked (!) by every single blog! I kept wanting to read through the whole blog because of the great projects I was seeing. The Pals are an amazingly talented and creative team and I look forward to every hop. This one was exceptional!
