For this Challenge I decided to create a simple Christmas Card. I was inspired by the colors and clean lines in the inspiration photo.
I used kraft card stock from Kraft Outlet as the base of my card. I then stamped snowflakes in white. I heat embossed them and added bling for more interest.
I used lace to create a flower to place behind the poinsettia. I made the poinsettia out of a Prima flower and a brad. I glimmer misted it with Fall Breeze and Patina.
The edges of the kraft card stock were inked using Walnut Stain Distress Ink by Ranger and I also edged it with Frost White All Purpose Ink.
Now for the small print!
