the magic of Christmas...

Hello friends!!  Back with another Christmas card for my stash.  I have been having a most excellent day and thought I would make a card! (So very happy to be having a most excellent day... over the last two months they have been few and far between!) Will be posting this one to Viva La Verve (week #3) and Time Out (embossing with a twist of sparkle).


Yesterday I made a trip to Joann's to buy a new wreath for my front door (got it for less than 1/2 prices... score!!) and while I was there I picked up this pad of glitter paper from Die Cuts with a View.  Boy is that some sparkly paper!  I die cut the MFT snowflake doily using a piece of champagne colored glitter paper.  Then to tone down all that sparkle I used a more muted color palette for the rest of the card.  The sentiment is from the Verve set Peace on Earth and the little star (or flower) is from the Verve set Holiday Treats.  For the embossing component of the card I ran one of the die cut circles through my Big Shot in my swiss dot embossing folder.  Patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft and Vintage Cream; PP:  My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas; Stamps:  Verve; Ink:  SU! Cherry Cobble;  Swiss Dot embossing folder; Dies:  Spellbinders & My Favorite Things
