Blue Christmas

Hello Friends ...
Thanksgiving is over ... Black Friday shopping is done
(ssshhh I lied ... I don't go out into all that craziness!  LOL)
Now I really need to get busy on the rest of the holiday cards I need to get made & sent out!
Time just flies by ... HOW does that happen??

Anyways ... here's a fun card I designed on consignment and liked it so well I made a few for myself!

The background paper was an older, plain blue design paper that I've had for so long that I can't even tell you who made it.  But, I probably picked it up in one of those big packs at one of the box stores at holiday time.
To add a bit more texture to it, I simply stamped over it with an Impression Obsession snowflake flourish stamp (F13376) and white craft ink.  I used that same stamp and blue ink for the inside of my card (see below)

My focus image was printed from the internet and to showcase it more elegantly,  I simply die cut the Impression Obsession 'Snowflake Background' DIE211 to use as an overlay.  I must tell you that I did cut the 2 center snowflakes out of the die cut panel so you could see the faces on my image better.  I can then use those snowflakes on another project.

I just love these vintage style images and die cuts help to make such an amazing difference with little effort.

The little poinsettias were made from a different die set and were extras from another project so I added them at the corner because it just looked like it needed 'something'!  LOL

My inside sentiment kind of says it all!
This is also an Impression Obsession stamp called 'Warmest Thoughts' #C5394.
