Christmas is here!

It's that time for Christmas cards... Lots of Christmas cards! This card is adorable, I love all the sparkle it has. It was really cloudy out this morning when I took the photo so it didn't show up well unfortunately.

My card base is Marina Mist with some Pretty In Pink & Daffodil Delight.. Not your traditional Christmas colors. But I think you can really make any color a Christmas color. I stamped the sentiment from Su's Many Merry Messages onto a piece of Whisper White in Marina Mist and then I punched a 1 3/4" in circle in the lower part to put my treat cup into. I filled the treat cup with some different colored chunky glitter.

When the card is lying down you can really see all that glitter... So pretty! I stamped the hook for the ornament in Silver and let it dry. I placed a piece of Vellum over the opening on the Treat Cup so it would be a softer look behind it. Then I layered it onto a piece of Pretty in Pink and added some Scallops in Daffodil Delight.

I mounted it onto the Marina Mist card base using a few dimensionals.. It needed a little something extra so I tied a bow in a piece of Daffodil Delight Ribbon and added it to the hook with a Glue Dot.

I hope you having a great start to your week... How many Christmas cards are you making this year? I haven't decided how many I will be sending out yet. I guess I better get to that.
