  • I added a snowflake die cut (Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies) from Copper Foil Sheets.  A self-adhesive Gold Faceted Gem bumps up the sparkle factor!
  • A pre-cut silver snowflake from Foil Snowflakes (one of My Favorite Things from the Stampin’ Up! holiday catalog) is layered over a dry embossed snowflake created with the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

  3. Kadie in Arizona

    What a STUNNING card you have created Mary. LOVE IT!

  4. Lovely as always! And you made my day with the tip of how to make the gold loops by wrapping around 3 fingers. I am seeing these loops on so many cards and don’t laugh… I must have spent an hour one day making loops and taping and gluing…so using 3 fingers? Who’d have thunk it!
    It’s the little tips you give and your One Minute to Wow videos that change my world!!!!???

    So beautiful, I love the foil snowflakes in the Year of Cheer suite and that snowflake embossing folder is breathtaking. Outstanding job Mary

  7. This is absolutely elegant. Very classy and understated glamour. You did a fabulous job mixing the metals with just the right touch.

    • Thank you, Kimberly. I find that “eclectic” can be a challenge for me but this was fun and I like how it turned out. I tend to overthink the eclectic angle and do best when I just start layering until the card says “mama!”

  8. Oh my…this is perfection.

  9. AWESOME!!!!! Thanks for sharing!
