A Snow Swirled Christmas

Well as usual I am behind on my Christmas cards.  But with the Snow Swirled stamp set I was able to make some elegant Christmas cards very quickly.  I used the SU kraft brown paper and made each card with one ink color .  Super simple!  I hope you’ve already mailed your cards for the holidays and not doing it at the last minute like me.

Very Merry Snowflakes PPA17 Sketch Challenge

This card was created for this week’s PPA sketch challenge by Margaret Moody, a talented pal known for her clean layouts and stunning design.  I wanted to use my sister’s new stamp set Snow Swirled.  I love this stamp set.  I used the snowflake stamp and some scraps leftover from my Holiday Card Event.  Red and green are the traditional colors for Christmas so I decided to do my take on this card with the snowflake background and a strip of textured paper done with the Petals-A-Plenty Stampin’ Up! Textured Impressions Folder for the Big Shot. I like the way my card turned out.  Let me know what you think.
