Happiest of Holidays to You and Yours!

Today's Christmas card was made from bits and pieces that I've had laying on my desk for almost a year and using stamps from Stampin' Up that are both old and new. I used the Tic Tac Toe Grid from Merry Monday with the diagonal row using "Stamping-Twine-Buttons" for my design. I will also be entering it @ Tuesday Morning Sketches for "Anything Goes", @ Stinkin' Inkers for "Celebrating the Holidays" and @ Die Cuttin' Divas for "Holiday".

I did some shadow stamping on the larger snowflakes on the white tag that you can really see here on the close-up...sometimes it's those tiny little details that make the card! In this case, it gave it a 3D-ish kinda look that I really liked.

I used several diecuts on this card -the fish-tailed tag (Stampin' Up) and sentiment stamped label (Spellbinders) on the front and the circle (Creative Memories) on the inside.

Little details on the front like the small mint circle behind the button, the twine bow tied through the button and the Wink of Stella glitter pen added in stripes on the patterned paper plus in the centers of the small snowflakes make a simple card shine! I really adore this color scheme too.

Until next time~
