Supplies used :
Cardstock : White, Metallic Gold, Metallic Silver
Tools : Dots Embossing Folder, Paper piercing tool, Snowflakes #3 Die Cut
Stamps : Twas the Night Before clear stamp set, Handwritten Sentiments
Ink : Silver
Other : Gems

I really like this weeks Freshly Made Sketches card challenge. It gave me the opportunity to use my snowflakes die cut. This card challenge is located at http://www.freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com. 

For those of you who do not know, the reason why I number my cards is because that way I know how many cards I have made since I first started making cards back in 2011. It is also easier for future reference should anyone inquire about a specific card and would like to know more about it.

With that being said, let me tell you about this card...

I chose white, metallic gold and metallic silver cardstocks for the colors. For the bottom half of my card, I used an embossing folder to accent it and then I used a paper piercing tool to accent the border of the top half.

I used metallic silver for the background of my snowflake, which was cut out using my snowflakes #3 die cut. Then I used a metallic gold and white snowflake in the middle to accent the background snowflake.

The first part of my sentiment is from my Handwritten Sentiments clear stamp set and the rest of the sentiment is from my "Twas the night before" clear stamp set. Both are stamped onto my card with silver/grey ink. And to highlight my card, I used a few gems.

This completes my card for this weeks FMS challenge. I hope you have enjoyed your visit and will visit again. As always, your comments are appreciated. May God bless u and may you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a very Merry Christmas!

All that glitters

All that glitters is snow
# 456-2015-11
Supplies used :
Cardstock : White, Night of Navy, Metallic Blue
Stamps : Many Thanks Christmas clear stamps
Ink : Black, Marina Mist, Night of Navy
Other : Snowflake Swirl embossing folder, Scalloped square framelits, Label framelit, brads, colored pencils.

The layout design for this card is from this weeks Freshly Made Sketches card challenge. This card challenge is located at http://www.freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com

I chose a Christmas theme for my card this week. The snow globes, snowman, and small tree are from a clear stamp set I recently purchased at Joann's. After I stamped them onto white paper, I colored them with colored pencils and then I cut the snow globes out and put them on my card. 

I stamped the snowman and tree inside the snow globes as well as the snow that is inside the globes. I chose my snowflake swirl embossing folder as a background image behind the globes. 

The sentiment is also from my recently purchased Many Thanks Christmas clear stamp set. I used Night of Navy to stamp it inside a Label framelit, which I used to light blue brads to attach it to my card. 

I hope you have enjoyed your visit to my blog. I know my cards aren't as fancy as everyone else's, however, I am glad you came by just the same. Please come back and visit again. Thanks.
