A Very Sparkly Christmas

 
Today I used the Expressions Framelits to make A Very Sparkly Christmas  card.  Instead of using the “normal” cut out word, this time I used the “leftover” piece of card stock so that the silver shimmer paper shows the word merry through it.  More silver bling to adorn the card with the silver ribbon and the Frosted Finishes Embellishments.

Birch Bark DSP

 
I was playing around with some left over pieces of the Birch Bark DSP from the Thankful Tablescapes kit, and decided to pair it with Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke for a traditional Christmas pallet.  What do you think?

Thankful

 
I love the simplicity of this card.  I used different prints from the Sweater Weather DSP and cut them into little banners.  The “Thankful” is from the Expressions Thinlits.  I have found that by “sandwiching” waxed paper between the card stock and the thinlit before running it through the Big Shot, it’s much easier to get the fine lines of the words to pop out of the thinlits.
