Cool Christmas

Here's a Christmas card using cool colors. I took this embossed snowflake sticker and added tiny crystals and silver balls to make it really special. Adding that to some matted circles makes for a super easy and eye catching focal point. I used a scrap of some ledger paper print for the background and it's almost as if you assume it's plaid since it's a Christmas themed card...but nope, it's not!

I used my sponge makeup wedge for the edging because I find it gives me the smooth and controlled look I want most often. I love how it adds that little extra, almost as if it's another layer.

The ledger paper is an excellent touch without having to buy a whole new sheet of xmas paper. An excellent way of using those crafty fads. Bling always dresses everything up so perfectly doesn't it?
