Happy Friday everyone! It has been a busy week here for me with work, getting ready for Christmas and PAC meetings at the school. I finally got a chance to play this morning with a bunch of new goodies that I picked up a little while ago. I don’t seem to have a problem making all of my Christmas cards, I am just slow at sending them out!
Here is a close up of the tree, I just love the bling!
The design for this card was inspired by the sketch over at CPS, it is almost the same, just altered a little bit but not much. I stamped the new Cat’s Pajamas set, Deck the Hall, in Versafine and coloured it with prismacolor pencils and oms as well as Spicas and Sakura glitter pens. I then added mini rhinestones for the lights and yellow Stickles for the star. I used Ruby Red liquid pearls in the corners after punching them with the SU! ticket corner punch. I used the snowflakes from the same set and embossed them with iridescent glitter embossing powder to create an subtle background. I punched the snowflake out of DCWV’s glitter mat stack with my EK Success snowflake punch and pop dotted it up and then added a rhinestone to the middle for a little extra sparkle. I also embossed the sentiment with red embossing powder to help it stand out more.

I am going to go and clean up my playroom and then maybe start working on getting my cards ready to send. I will make some hot chocolate, turn on the Christmas music and watch the snowfall, if that does not get me in the mood, nothing will! I hope everyone is having a great day and thanks for stopping by!
