Let It Snow!

Today we have a lovely card from Gretchen Barron to get us in the mood for the upcoming Holidays.  Isn't this gorgeous?

Here's what Gretchen used to make her card:

This stamp set is the absolutely beautiful Serene Snowflakes from the Holiday Mini Catalog! I used the flocked paper from the Christmas Cocoa Specialty Designer Series Paper and I embossed Layer Two with the Finial Press Impressions Folder and the Big Shot. The colors are Old Olive, Real Red and Whisper White (can't get much more traditional than that for Christmas). I used the Scallop Border Punch, Jumbo Snowflake Punch, 3/4" circle and the 1 3/4" Circle Punches, along with the Old Olive Taffeta ribbon from the fabulous Mistletoe Originals Ribbon bundle. The sentiment is from All Holidays. The lovely half-back pearl from the Pretties Kit is glued on using Crystal Effects. And there's a little Dazzling Diamonds applied to the snowflake punch with a 2-way Glue Pen. And of course, you don't want to ignore the inside of your card. I stamped some little dancing snowflakes on the inside.

It's a beautiful card Gretchen - you always have something to inspire our creativity!
