Sweet Shop Christmas

I have a couple more Christmas cards for the EKTC Auction basket. Can't wait to see what the rest of my craft group comes up with. It's always interesting how our individual styles pop out. Mix a bunch of our cards together and you can usually tell who made each card.

The first card is another one using the Bo Bunny Winter Joy-Brrr DP. I so love the non-tradional colors of this for making Christmas Cards.

  I'm using the sketch from The Sweet Stop Skctch challange 119. Simple and pretty!  The sentiment is from Flourishes Classic Christmas-It's one stamp I stamped in halfs and heat embossed. They are cut using Spellbinders Labels Small and large sets. The little charms were a gift from a friend last winter-I finally am using some! The ribbon is from a friend's wedding a couple weeks ago-it was tied around the bulletin, and of course being a crafter I had to keep it and repurpose it. I also added some litte star rhinestones to the center of 2 of the snowflakes on the DP.

This card is really quite simple. I used the Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations TAll trees embossing folder on the green cardstock (EK Color sense-Spruce) and a sizzix snowflake embossing folder on the white cardstock. The ribbon is some Christmas gift wrap ribbon. I added some Stickles to the trees and snowflakes (I thought it was stardust-it wasn't-it's more gold. Oh, well, it's still pretty). I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed with gold EP. I then punched it out with SU oval punch, and SU scalloped oval for the burgundy mat. I added some recollections clear rhinestones to the center of the snowflakes. Then I sprizted the whole thing with Glimmer Mist-Glacier.
Thanks for looking.  Leave a comment if you would.
