Merry Christmas To All Stamp Set 

It been pretty gray in Houston the past few days, and I needed some color to brighten my day.  This simple card uses the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder as a background.  Its spritzed with Frost White Shimmer Paint mixed with 70% Isopropyl Alcohol, which doesn't begin to show in the photos.  However, the finish on this card makes my eyes happy!        


The basecard is Coastal Cabana cardstock.  The next layer is Coastal Cabana dry embossed with the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder.      

The sentiment is stamped on a die cut made with the middle size Stitched Season Framelits Dies, a limited edition set of dies that I love.  As a side note, when Stampin' Up! offers limited edition stamp and die sets, I highly recommend you pick up these sets when they are offered to avoid buyers regret after they are no longer available.  I'm finding so many uses for these Stitched Season Framelits.  In November, Stampin' Up! will offer another limited edition set.  Mine is on the way and I'll share sneak peeks as soon as they arrive. 

The sentiment is from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set stamped in Night of Navy. The snowflakes are from the Blizzard Thinlit Dies, a single die that cuts multiple snowflakes in different sizes and shapes in one pass through the Big Shot.  I backed my Whisper White paper with Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets before I cut the snowflakes.  Then, I just removed the backing and stuck the snowflakes where I wanted them. 

The holes in each end of the sentiment label was punched with the Detailed Trio Punch.  I threaded the 3/8" Silver Metallic-Edged ribbon through to the back side of the sentiment label and tied a bow.  I also added a couple of clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels, which added to the glimmer on the card front.  Kudos to Leena Girsa for her inspiration for this card.
