From Our Family to Yours

In my quest to make a multitude of Christmas cards for the SendASmile4Kids foundation & the Caring Hearts Card Drive I turned to Pinterest to get ideas.  I found a card made by the InkyFingeredCarol blog and cased it.  I used a Spellbinder's border die to cut the white card panel apart, and then embossed the top part with a Darice snowflake folder.  The sentiment I stamped on the bottom cut is from Hero Arts CL722.  After placing the top & bottom pieces on some green card stock, I took two separate stamps from the Clearly Besotted "Most Wonderful"stamp set & curved them on an acrylic block as best I could to follow the arc of the border die cut, then stamped them with Versamark & embossed them with Simon Says Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. The last step was to take some Recollection green embellishment crystals & glue them into the center of some of the snowflakes.  I really like how this card turned out!! I made three of them in this green color, and three more using red card stock & crystal embellishments.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!!
