Snow!

Hi All!  Thanks to all of you for such a warm welcome back.   You sure know how to make a crafter feel good!!

Welcome back to another Stamping Bella Bellariffic Friday card challenge - this week is to use snow on your card.  I picked an easy stamp... and one of my all-time favs:  Door with Wreath by Mo Manning


Love the warmth of the red and I matched it up with some Basic Grey Wassail paper from a few Christmas's ago. 

Instead of the usual fine glitter, I used a chunkier one and I find it looks more like snow.


I double stamped the wreath and then attached it with double sided foam tape.... and more glitter there too.  I used Spellbinders "Classic Edges 1" die for the scallop & MFT "Let it Snowflake" die.  Sheer ribbon, velvet ribbon, lace and a big 'ol pearl finish it off.  Here's the inside:


I finished off the inside with a couple of sentiments from an MFT Christmas set and a little sewing. 

Well thanks for stopping by and checking out my card - hope you like it.  I'm loving these challenges that are getting my butt in gear to get going on Christmas cards.  Don't forget to head over to Bloggabella to see all of the snow creations (they are SNOW FANTASTIC!!... sorry, couldn't resist) and be sure to leave a comment there for a chance to win some Bella Bucks.

Have a great weekend everyone...

Carla.
