Just another Christmas Card

I love making Christmas cards and today I had an idea to use snowflakes in a new way. My sister made me allot of snowflakes using the Decorative strip from the SU Holiday Mini and sent them to me. I am a new SU Demo and got my first order just before Thanksgiving and also moved into a new house. So guys I am alittle behind.  I hope you enjoy what I came up with. It is easy, simple and elegant all at the same time. Remember I love Vintage cards.

I am so sorry the picture is blurred, sometimes I shake too much.

Card stock:   Soft Seude, Marnia Mist
Ribbon:       Whisper White Satin
Ink Pads:      Whisper White Craft, Soft Suede and Versa Mark
Misc:            Heat & Stick, Su Rhinestones       

I cut my base card out of soft Suede, next layer is Marina Mist, and 3rd layer is Soft Suede again. I stamped snowflakes using SU Northern Hearts stamp set from the Holiday Mini, with Whisper White Craft Ink. Then took the white snowflakes and sponged them with Soft Seude, let dry a minute and then stamp them with Versa Mark, sprinkled them with heat stick, used my heat gun to make them sticky and then sprinkled the snowflakes in Dazzling Diamonds. Added a Whisper White Satin Ribbon and attached the snowflakes after drying.

    I echo everyone's comments on the snowflake treatment. Fabulous! I love the unexpected color scheme, too. The white bow is the perfect touch to this gorgeous card.
