Hi everyone… a bit late today… it’s Monday and a sailing day and silly me didn’t get this written & scheduled last night… but here I am. Today’s card is made with the Simply Elegant DSP, Gold Shimmer Vellum (from the Jul-Dec Mini 2021 Catalog and Encircled in Beauty Dies plus one or two other items. I hadn’t broken open the Encircled in Beauty Dies and am so disappointed I haven’t used them more – they are, well, beautiful :O]

Simply Elegant DSP w/ Wonderful Snowflakes.1

This is such an easy layout to ‘change up’. Besides the Simply Elegant DSP which is a major focus, there is also the Wonderful Snowflake and the background for it is a die cut from Gold Shimmer Vellum using one of the Encircled in Beauty Dies. Another addition is 7/8″ wide Textured Ribbon in Smoky Slate – lots of grays & golds going on here. The special touch is the Silver Embossing Powder for the sentiment. To me, that really brings it all together. The sentiment comes from Snowflake Wishes stamp set. Card cuts will be listed at the bottom of this post.

Wonderful Snowflakes.2

For the inside, more snowflakes from Snowflake Wishes stamp set stamped n a Basic White panel with VersaMark ink, covered with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set. The snowflakes add a finishing touch to the inside – and I didn’t feel another sentiment was necessary, but it would be easy enough to do. Adhere panel to the inside of the card and that’s it!

The flap got more of the same Simply Elegant DSP trimmed to fit. The front of the envelope got more of the snowflakes from Snowflake Wishes stamp set… stamped w/ VersaMark, covered with Silver Embossing Powder & heat set. And it’s ready for Christmas mailing 😁 This puts me at 31 Christmas cards… more to make with a goal of 100! I’m not good at mass producing, meaning… I don’t like to do it. I certainly can and may have to resort to it, but not yet.
