Almost 25 Days of Christmas Cards

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend! I’ve decided to go ahead and post the last few cards here today since Christmas Eve is tomorrow and obviously Christmas on Wednesday. I know I will be enjoying the holiday festivities with my family as will many of you I am sure. I didn’t have a chance to the fancy photo editing with these last few; but I hope you enjoy them nonetheless.

Have a very Merry Christmas everyone and enjoy your New Year festivities. I will be back probably the second week of January or so with new creations to share and inspire.

25 Days of Christmas Cards: Day 9

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend. Ours was busy; but lots of fun with great food and time well spent with family. The house is decorated, Alexa is geared up with holiday music, the holiday essential oils are diffusing throughout the house and I am continuing with my holiday baking. Gosh,  I just love this time of year!

I’m back with today’s card for Day 9. I was inspired by a card I saw during a blog hop for Simon Says Stamp early in the season. I really like the white snowflake dry stencil emboss on white card stock and then an extra touch with the die cut snowflakes as well. I added the red glitter letters and the two simple sentiments on top and bottom using versamark and white embossing powder.



Have a great day and I’ll see you all again tomorrow!
