Christmas Card Crunch

I admit it.  I'm behind on sending out my Christmas cards.  If you are on my card list, you may be getting yours a little late.  Sorry about that.   Now that my 2015 cards are made, it's time to start working on 2016.  I like working on Christmas cards during the Christmas season.  A few years ago I learned to work ahead by creating "in season" for the next season.


One of the things I love about this card is that I used some of my snowflake stamps in a very unique way.  I turned them over and inked up the back of the stamp.  They are in the shape of a circle, so I was able to really stretch my stamps.   I also used Bokeh Dots to fill in with more sizes of circles and then embossed my snowflakes on top of some of the dots.  


The Snowy Sayings stamp set was a part of the Stamp of Approval Holiday Magic collection.  If you were lucky enough to snag one of those boxes before they sold out, you can link up your creations HERE for a chance to win the NEW collection being released in January 2016!  Hurry though.  You only have a few more hours to link up!  Voting begins on Sunday at 6pm EST

Ink: Berrylicious, Blue Raspberry (My Favorite Things) Peacock Feathers (Distress) Pool Party, Marina mist, Soft Sky (Stampin' Up!) Versamark, Versafine Onyx Black

I like that one. I wanted to vote for your snow card, but I saw you said no vote. Hard to pick another in its place.
