Happy Friday and thanks for visiting today! It has been one crazy busy week in our household as I am sure it has been in yours! The holidays are fast approaching, so this week on the Sisters in Stamping blog we are showcasing Christmas cards featuring accessories for the Big Shot.
I chose to keep mine pretty clean and simple - the embossed snowflakes from the Northern Flurry textured impressions folder really pop along with the bling on my card from the rhinestone accents and those in the Frosted Finishes embellishment. I am just in love with this color combination - midnight muse, smoky slate and whisper white. You may remember it from my Week 2 Calm Christmas Quick & Easy Christmas card.
Here's a close-up of the banner piece - it is really hard to capture the brightness and sparkle of the rhinestones in the snowflake Frosted Finishes embellishments...
And last but not least, why not make the inside of the card just as pretty as the outside? I just punched out a scalloped border on a scrap strip of midnight muse designer paper and added it as a border along the bottom of the card. This extra touch makes the card feel so much more special, doesn't it?! And really, isn't that what sending out handmade Christmas cards to family and friends is supposed to be about - making those we love know we're thinking of them during the holidays?
