Happy Holidays

Hi there! Happy Friday to you. The days sure are flying by, aren't they?

Here in my world, I am super glad that the weekend is here. No big plans, just looking forward to the days off. How about a cute little card for Friday?

Don't you love these Four Framed Snowflakes from Hero Arts? I stamped each of them in a different color - I am a big fan of these four colors together for the holidays. I cut each snowflake out, inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and adhered them to a mat of cardstock cut with the pinking blade on my paper trimmer. I added a strip of patterned paper from Crate Paper's Peppermint Collection, some paper piercing, and coordinating rhinestones in each of the snowflake centers. The sentiment is from the Wplus9 set Christmas Wishes, which was selectively inked to split the phrase.

This is a 4-1/4 inch square card. It makes me smile! Imagine all the different colors.. I'd like to try this in different shades of blue with lots of glitter!

So glad to see you today, have a good one!

  1. This is a wonderful card and such a clever layout. I wonder if I could do this with my Take Three Snowflakes and my new Postage Stamp nesties? Your colors look really terrific together. This card is going on my pinterest

  2. WOW Anya - I'm really crazy about this one!!! I like lots of color and this one is a real feast for the eyes! I don't know if you stamped the snowflakes off center or if they are mounted this way, but they hold your interest and are really striking. The gems are a nice little bit of sparkle to set it off. This is simply perfection!

  3. What a gorgeous card! I love these colours together, too!

  4. Anya this is FABULOUS!! I LOVE it.. GREAT holiday color combo!! and YES I LOVE those stamps too!
    Happy Holidays!
