Sweet Sunday Holiday Cheer

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC160.

It's doesn't take long to fall behind on making one Christmas card per week, but I'm jumping right back on the wagon with today's card. This is card #18 for Project Christmas 2012, and it's a nice flat one for easy mailing!

I used the Christmas Ornaments stamps and Die-namics set from My Favorite Things and paired it with patterned papers from the October Afternoon Holiday Style paper pad.

I used Bubblegum and Sour Apple card stocks for the ornaments then stamped the snowflakes on each with Memento Lady Bug and Memento Cottage Ivy inks respectively. Then I covered them completely with glitter for a gorgeous sparkly look! I used the new Traditional Tags STAX Die-namics to cut out the cream tag and the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics were perfect for creating the striped layer. I finished the card with a snowflake cut out of Berrylicious card stock using the Let It Snowflake Die-namics.

I hope you'll play along and link your creation on Karen' blog. Now it's time to hop around to see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
