Frosty Flurry

Hi there and welcome back!  Freshly Made Sketches has a wonderful sketch this week that I decided to use to create another Christmas card with the Festive Flurry stamp set.

I started with a base of Smoky Slate covered with a piece of Winter Frost designer paper.  Next a band of Silver Glimmer paper really added to the "frosty", sparkly appearance of the card. The Pool Party Core'dinations panel was run through the Big Shot with the Pretty Petals embossing folder and lightly sanded.  The panel was long enough that I decided not to add the two flags at the bottom as shown on the sketch. 

I love this Festive Flurry set and matched with the Winter Frost dp, offers many color combination options for the snow flakes.  An easy and fun layout made it a pretty simple card to put together for mass production and is relatively flat for mailing - a win-win Christmas card in my book!

Thanks once again for taking a look, and as always, I'd love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment.

This is lovely, Stef. I especially like the Pool Party panel embossed with Petals A Plenty; perfect for Christmas.
