Christmas Sparkles

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!  I hope this day is magical for each and every one of you.  Last night after fixing horsd'oeuvre platters I created this snowflake card.  

The shimmery blue background paper was embossed with a Cuttlebug Flurries embossing folder.  I then spritzed it with Tsukineko Sheer Frost Shimmer.  A piece of Fresh Air paper was cut using the Memory Box Essex Label die.  The matching Christmas Sparkles stamp was done in Ballet Blue.  Organdy white ribbon was wrapped around before adhering it to the base card.

I punched two snowflakes from opal pearl shimmer paper using a Marvy snowflake punch.  Both were popped up and then I glued a frosted finishes snowflake to the center.  Kaiser silver rhinestones were added to the label.

The inside sentiment was stamped in Ballet Blue and embossed with clear embossing powder with a heat gun.  Snowflakes were stamped in VersaMark with silver embossing powder.   

May your day be filled with smiles and wonderful holiday traditions!  Blessings to you and your family.
