Wintery Night

You all probably thought I wasn't going to post anymore this week, well I almost didn't. I have been so swamped that I was just too tired. But, you know what? Believe it or not, this actually helps me wind down for the night..................Anyway here we go!

This card that I've posted is another one of those, very pretty but simple cards. This handmade Christmas card has a white card stock base, with a blue layer on top that has been embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder. The folder has the theme of a distant winter town. Before I adhere the winter theme to the base card, I attach the ribbon and then glue the blue winter layer on. I take a 1in. square punch , cut it 1/2 point to point and that gives you the photo corners. I heat emboss warm wishes and last but not least, I add stardust stickles to the rooftops and scatter 2 or 3 stars. there you have it. A very pretty but simple card to send out to those on your Christmas card list.

I hope you try making this handmade Christmas card and you will see just how simple it really is.

I thank you all so much for stopping by and checking out my blog. My hope is that in some way, I may be an inspiration. I am truly blessed..................
