I Know It’s Way Too Early for This, But…

I know it’s way too early for Christmas cards, but I’ve had these Christmas papers, stamps and dies staring at me for a few weeks now since we pre-ordered from the Holiday catalog.  And when I saw the sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches site and the banner challenge at The Paper Players site, I just instantly knew what I wanted to do with it.  And that so rarely happens to me.

So you see, I couldn’t help but make a Christmas card today.

I covered the snowflake with Dazzling Diamonds glitter and the Very Vanilla looking card stock is actually the Shimmery White card stock — I just can’t get it to shimmer for the camera.

This was a fun sketch and it was fun to make a square card again.  I don’t make many of them.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Border Banter
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler
Paper:  Shimmery White, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla (snow flake), Be of Good Cheer dsp
Embellishments:  Snow Flurry Bigz die, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Large Pearl Basics Jewels
