*Plastic Snowflakes*

My second-to-last Christmas card for 2007. I'm really rather sad to be saying goodbye to my Christmas images again. I love them so much.

As I have said many times before, by far, my most favourite reason to stamp is Christmas.

This card started with me playing with another scrap of plastic (this was one from my Scor-Pal). I put it through my Cuttlebug with the Snowflake Embossing folder. It really makes such a wonderful impression on anything you put through the machine.

But once I got that done and put on to the Bashful Blue card, I really didn't know what I wanted to do with it. It sat on my table for several days before this came together.

Simple, but pretty.... at least in my opinion... especially with all the bling around the Pomegranate scallop!

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Purely Pomegranate, Bashful Blue
*Images: Stampin' Up!
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Purely Pomegranate Classic
*Tools: Cuttlebug and Snowflakes Embossing Folder; Nestabilities
*Embellishments: silver brads; bling; Stampin' Up! double stitched ribbon

I hope you are all spending some time with family and friends this week.... and enjoying it!

Fantastic idea using the plastic...I especially love my Cuttlebug embossing folders they are terrific & make cards look really expensive.
