Simply... yet ELEGANT!


Oh how I love the cards that fit that description! Easy enough to make alot of them... yet beautiful enough to get the "wow" factor from friends and family! (LOL!)
I used the snowflake wreath design from DRS Designs and embossed it with white detail EP. LOVE the way it showed off the ... Well, DETAILS in the snowflakes! I guess they named it the right thing, huh? The I embossed the sentiment in the detail white as well... cuz, why reinvent the wheel???If it worked... go with it, I say! Next I got out the trusty Cuttlebug and cut the snowflakes and the corner accents. I used the bow ribbon slide from DRS and colored it with COPIC markers. Then, I put crystal effects all over the whole thing and let it dry over night. I cut it out and added the red polka dot ribbon just for some pizazz!
I love how this came out and I have got to say that this is one of my FAVORITE stamps from DRS... AND... if you are dreaming of a white Christmas and live in the South as I do... this is a great way to see some snow! Y'all have a great night and thanks for stopping by!

Wow, this is nice. I love the white and navy together, with just that tiny touch of red. Looks great. That sentiment is perfect.
