'Tis the Season.......

Nichole Heady has such a wonderful blog - not to mention stamps - and I am so hooked! I saw this post of Nichole's and immediately took a real liking to the fourth card down. I knew it would be a sweet card to mass produce.

Nichole had also shown us how to make our cards economical, leaving the possibilities open to adding a few embellishments here and there, which is what I did in my card today.

I punched a snowflake out of Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses since the colours co-ordinate so well with Papertrey Ink Hibiscus Burst and added a big ol' Zva Creative crystal to the middle. I coloured the crystal first with my RV17 copic marker so that it would match. It was a light pink and I wanted it a closer colour to the paper and ink.

I also added some Zva Creative Double Flourishes, which I always trim down to my satisfaction, and it's all about being satisfied (or thrilled!) with your creation!

The top of the stocking and the tips of the snowflake are covered with Stickles Icicle Glitter just to jazz it up a titch........

Thanks for coming around today......I am so busy having fun making cards for our craft sale and I hardly have time to post anything!
