Christmas card idea #1

Holy moly did it take forever to upload this picture! First of all, my camera batteries are dead so I barely got this on my pc, then I was having problems with blogger...it took longer to get the card on here than it did to make it...and it took a while to make :) I know I havn't posted anything in a while, however my youngest has been sick and I havn't been feeling well (sidenote, I have Crohn's Disease) and I think I might be having a little flare up. Not that its the best excuse, but I havn't had any energy and my creativity was zapped out of me. Enough of that let's get to the card. So I havn't made my Christmas cards yet!!!! I know I am way behind but they will be completed by the end of the weekend to be mailed out on Monday. So I sat down and made this earlier today, I really wanted to use my Snowflake Serenade set by Papertrey, but it seemed a little plain alone, so I added the flourish from Baroque Motifs by SU. You can't really tell but there is dazzling diamonds on peace and on the snowflake in the scallop circle. This is a really clean and simple card, however using different sized snowflakes, and multiple stamps sets, plus the dazzling diamonds it took a while to make this. So I'm not sure how many of these I will make? Maybe 10 at the max...the dazzling diamonds glitter can be a mess, but oh so worth it. On to the next prototype...normally I only make one xmas card and mass produce it, however this year I have so many stamp sets that I want to use, I will make 3-4 different cards and make 15-20 of each.

Materials used: chocolate chip, bashful blue & whisper white cardstock, bashful blue & chocolate chip ink, scallop circle punch by SU, circle punch by CM, ticket corner punch by SU, glue pen by Martha Stewart, bashful blue grosgrain ribbon by SU, dazzling diamonds glitter by SU, star dust stickles, Snowflake Serenade stamp set by Papertrey Ink, Baroque Motifs stamp set by Stampin Up!
