Serene Snowflakes

Life is kind of crazy here…trying to get the initial planning done on the wedding.  Since I'm in town I get to be more involved in the planning, which is FUN, but again time-consuming.  We are sitting in pretty good shape now with reception location nailed down.  Next up is Save the Dates to be designed and sent out!
 

So…onto my card!  Here is a card that I made with my technique class last month.  I got the idea from Dawn Olchefsky who calls it Clear Block Stamping.  I love the subtle look of the block inked in the background!  I switched up her fall card to a Christmas/Winter card!

 

 

The base card is Marina Mist cardstock and I layered on Night of Navy.  The main layer is Whisper White.  I inked up the square D Clear Mount Block with Marina Mist, then stamped off on scrap paper, then inked up the edges with Night of Navy ink and stamped on Whisper White.  In the top left and lower right corners I stamped off with Marina Mist ink and the smallest snowflakes from Stampin' Up!'s Serene Snowflake stamp set.  I stamped the largest snowflake full-strengh with Marina Mist and the next size snowflake full-stength with Night of Navy.  Inside the large snowflake I placed a Silver Glimmer Brad for some sparkle!  I added the greeting from Many Merry Messages with Night of Navy Ink.

 

I wrapped some Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon around and tied a knot on the front.  This is a pretty quick and easy holiday card to make!  Not a lot of bulk on the front so it is easy to mail!

 

Well…I have to get in my Studio today and get some things done!  Deadlines are creeping up on me!  lol!

 

I have a couple spots left in my next Round of Ribbon Shares!  Find more information HERE!

With the new catalog, Stampin' Up! has introduced a lot of new ribbon colors!  So, I thought it was time for more Ribbon Shares.  Each Group of Ribbon will be wrapped around 1-2 pieces of chipboard so your ribbon arrives wrinkle-free and organized.
