Merry Christmas!

Hi all it's Vicki here today.  This month I will only have 1 CFS post.  However, there will be a fabulous release at the end of the month!  So, you can look forward to that :).

Meanwhile, I actually "saw" my idea for today's card!  [By that I mean in my mind - that doesn't happen often, and when it does I am thrilled. Usually, I need to physically see to be inspired].

I am starting with my Christmas cards.  We all know how fast time flies, and I don't want the "pressure" to get my cards completed.  I bet you can relate, right?

 I really am happy with this card!  I started out by stamping the snowflakes from Bring on the Snowflakes with versamark ink, and using the [now in the store!] WOW Metallic Silver Sparkle Embossing Powder, I heat embossed the images on a card panel.  Then using a shade darker ink, I stamped the snowflakes from Merry.  I then cut out the framing, and turned it into a shaker card!

See the tiny snowflakes within the shaker stuff? Those are the Jacks Chipboards that I embossed with the Opaque Bright White Superfine  Embossing Powder.  A fun addition to the sequins I also added.  Once all that was put together, I die cut the Merry Christmas Fri-Die 3 times - once in black for shading, and embossed with the WOW Metallic Super Fine Silver Embossing Powder.  I also used one of the larger Jacks, and also embossed that with the same powder.  

While I won't be mass producing this card, it will go to a special person :).  How about you?  Have you started your Christmas cards yet?
