Blue, White, and Silver Christmas

Here is the swap card for the Blue, White, & Silver group that I mentioned yesterday.

Stamps: Season of Joy, Snow Swirled
Cardstock: Whisper White, Marina Mist, Night of Navy
Ink: Marina Mist, Night of Navy
Accessories: 5/8" Night of Navy Satin ribbon, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Die, Silver Brads, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Stampin' Dimensionals, Needle Tool, Mat Pack

The card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Whisper White cardstock scored at 4 1/4". A piece of Whisper White cardstock was cut at 3 3/4" x 5" and run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Die. This was adhered to a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Marina Mist cardstock. I used the Needle Tool and Mat Pack to punch two holes in the upper left hand corner and added two Silver Brads. Some 5/8" Night of Navy Satin ribbon was tied around the panel and into a knot. I just love how rich and pretty this satin ribbon is. It's just wonderful! These panels were then adhered to the card front.

On a 2" x 3" piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tree from Season of Joy in Marina Mist ink. Then I stamped the "Seasons Greetings" from Snow Swirled on the bottom of the piece in Night of Navy ink. Some Crystal Effects was added on top of the star on the tree and then coated with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. This made the star really sparkle and shine! After the Crystal Effects dried this panel was adhered to a piece of 2 1/8" x 3 1/8" Night of Navy cardstock. This was adhered to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals to make it pop up off the card.

I hope you have enjoyed these Christmas card swaps and get you thinking about making your own Christmas cards this year! Come back tomorrow to see a scrapbook page created in My Digital Studio!
