Merry Christmas with snowflakes

Hi, I'm finally back. It's been almost 2 weeks since my previous post.  I keep thinking that I've finished making all the Christmas cards that we need.  Then I realize I've forgotten 1 or 2 people.  I *think* this is my final card for the season.  This one is going to our paper carrier with a little something inside.

I'm playing along in 2 challenges.

The Paper Players #126 - Ann's CAS challenge, featuring snowflakes

Here's my take on that challenge combo!

You know what?  I began with the intention of making this a masculine card.  Hence the blue and brown color choices.  Because our paper carrier is a guy.  Um.  I'm thinking I should have stopped myself from adding those pretty blue gems.  So pretty.  But not "manly".


I guess that's Stanley's problem now.

Cause I just can't bring myself to remove those bits of bling.  No.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate all of my visitors!  Merry Christmas and Peace Be With You.

The recipe:
Card stock: marina mist, whisper white, early espresso (SU) white vellum (The Paper Studio)
Ink: early espresso (SU)
Stamps: love lives here - holiday (PTI)
DSP: festival of lights pack (SU)
Other: blue gems (The Paper Studio), damask snowflake die, snowflake medley die (PTI)


  1. Gorgeous! Your snowflake is just amazing Susie!
    Hope you have a fabulous Christmas!

  2. Ooooh love those snowflakes Susie! I have that die! After seeing this I want to try it out on vellum as well! Happy Holidays to you and your family!!! :)

  3. Beautiful! I love the rhinestones you added! I think he will love it! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  4. LOL, I think Stanley will enjoy it blingy or not! SO very pretty...those snowflakes are gorgeous! So glad you could play with the Paper Players this week!

  5. What an amazing snowflake Susie, such a beautiful card! Happy New Year!!!
