CC193 Christmas Blessings...


Hi Everyone! A quick post for you. I was home today and made a card for the SCS Color Challenge CC193. The 3 colors are Basic Black, Real Red, and Kraft. Last night I put my SU! Season's of Friendship set together and took my first shot at making a card. I wanted to spin off a Christmas theme. The birds (Cardinals) are raised to give some pop. My snow was embossed with Iridescent Ice to give some dazzle. I also added Liquid Pearls to the branches.
Enjoy the eye candy as much as I do... I'm happy with it!!! Now I'm off to watch Dancing with the Stars.... Yeah!

Hi Michelle,

I popped over to your blog after reading the comment you left on mine. To my astonishment I see this card, the very card I put into my favorites on SCS last night. This card is beautiful! In fact, after I saw it I went to Jo-Ann.com and ordered the embossing folder! So, great job and I will be subscribing!

FABULOUS!!! I love the snow you put on the tree and on the ground! Brilliant! That is so cool how you dry embossed and stamped on the same panel!

This is great! I just bought the snowflake embossing folder, so I'll have to give this a try. Thanks for the inspiration!

This is such a cute card! I had to use it as inspiration for one of my Christmas cards. Please swing by my blog and tell me what you think. :)
