Christmas happiness...

Ok, I know it's just BARELY into November, but I have to make A LOT of Christmas cards to send out. So, here is one I made yesterday. I'm entering this for the PageMaps card challenge.

Here is the sketch:

This is one of the sketches from the September 2012 CardMaps. So strange I had that already out as I was going to make a card using one of the other sketches. (That will be for an upcoming post.)

When I saw this, I immediately thought of ornaments and a big snowflake. I used papers from Recollections Believe collection (love the patterns and colors in this line!) I added some dots of glitter glue to the snowflake, the center ornament, and also the 'a' and 'r' in the sentiment. (It's hard to see. I usually take pictures of my cards using natural light, but it's been so gloomy all week that I've had to use my Ott Lite.)

I hope you play along too. There's some swag from Freckled Fawn up for grabs! (Washi washi washi!! Woo hoo!!) Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great Friday!

  1. Beautiful card. I don't think it's too early to start and dh keeps reminding me about the one year I made a few cards each month. I can't seem to get in the mood in the summer to make christmas cards anymore though.

  2. Really beautiful and elegant holiday card! Your idea of using the snowflake and ornaments was truly a stroke of genius with that sketch! Love the glittered accents and all the details! FAB!
