Merry Monday #50

We are having a theme challenge this week at Merry Monday.  We want to see your Elegant Christmas cards!  I went with a clean and simple design that could be easily reproduced.  I am a huge fan of purple themed Christmas card, so this one will be added to the stash for the coming year.

I layered my snowflake with Pansy Purple cardstock and Silver glitter cardstock.  Did you know that Close To My Heart has six colors of glitter cardstock in the new Idea Book?  The glitter cardstock is also Cricut compatible and works well with manual die cut machines as well.

I added a little bling to the inside of my card as well.  The sentiment is by My Favorite Things, it is perfect with the glitter and bling!

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

D1520 Ornamental Cheer

Sparkle Sentiment by MFT (sorry no name on the stamp set)

Z1829 Glitter Cardstock

  6. This is such a striking card with the high contrast of the snowflake and the embossed background. Love the glittered cardstock both in the matting and the focal. The inside is really lovely, as well. Thanks for joining our All That Glitters challenge at Craft Your Passion. I hope we see you again soon.
