Quick & Easy Christmas Card

Snowflake single stamp; Teeny Tiny Wishes, Holiday, Christmas card, Stampin' Up, Big ShotHere’s a quick and easy card for you.  Most of it is quick, anyway.  I made the silver “faux metal” label earlier, so all I had to do was grab it and stick it on.

For this label, I die cut a piece of thin cardboard with one of the Apothecary collection framelits with my Big Shot.  Then I dunked it in versamark ink and heat embossed it with silver powder.  After repeating this 2-3 more times, I mottled it by using a thick embossing powder the last time.  I used Glassy Glaze, a wonderful product that Stampin’ Up! retired a few years ago.  I’m hoarding what I have, but it’s almost gone.  It’s another of those misunderstood and underused products that I loved, but it didn’t sell well enough to stay in the catalog.  *sigh*  That’s okay, though, because there are tons of other products to keep me happy!

Here’s the rest of the card.

I stamped the middle snowflake with our Illuminate watermark glimmer ink, then used heat & stick powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter on it.  I stamped the snowflake a few more times in the Illuminate ink, then matted it with brushed metallic silver card stock.

I embossed the front of the card with the Petals-aplenty embossing folder and added a brad to the center of the snowflake.  I thought the Whisper White organza ribbon would be a nice touch, and soften the boldness of the white punched sentiment.

I got a sneak peek at the Spring catalog and the Sale-a-bration flier.  You’re going to love it!!  I saw a couple things in there that my mom has been asking for!  All I can say is – 40 pages of cuteness!  My bank account is in trouble.  I’m going to have to show great restraint this time.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy – and have a wonderful day!

    I’m finally getting some time to browse a few favorite blogs. Love this combo of silver and navy. And I’m crazy about the Bold Snowflake stamp! Love that it has six points (and not eight as some of our stamps have)! Don’t know why, but I’m quite adamant about that! 😉 Anyhoo, I think this is a lovely, classy card that really appeals to me! BTW, are you planning to go to Orlando for Leadership? I am considering it. (I’ve never gone to any SU! event other than a few regionals). I only have one in my downline (finally) so I don’t know how much it will pertain to me, but I’d love to have the big SU! experience!

      Thanks, Luralyn! Yes, I am going to Orlando!! Do go – it would be so terrific to meet you! I’ve only been to conventions and Regionals, so this will be my first Leadership as well. If you sign up, let me know so we can meet up!
