Flurries and Stripes!

This was a fun card to make. I love the shape on the bottom. To make it, I took a small bowl and marked the bottom edge of the card with a pencil and then cut on the line! Easy Peasy! I then adhered the cute KI Memories PP, also with the same shape. On the edge, I adhered some cute mini pom-pom ribbon, I found in ACMoore. It is so cute, it also comes in several colors! Off to get more tomorrow! ;) Anywho! I then used one of those Provo Craft wooden snowflakes I picked up in Michaels, 4 for $1! Can't beat that! Painted it white and then drenched it in ultra fine glitter. I then punched out some green branches and some white snowflakes using my Martha Stewart punches! Love them! After the wooden snowflake was dry, I adhered the branches, snowflakes and Poinsettia flower(Offray) using my hot glue gun. I then adhered some matching ribbon with gold beads to the card and then my snowflake over that. The tag is by Fancy Pants(a leftover from my M2R Kit), which I hand wrote the sentiment on and adhered to the card with some hemp cord. To finish it off, I adhered some more ribbon, another punched snowflake, also drenched in glitter, and some pearls. Hope you like it!

Hugs, Melissa

I love the Offray poinsettia! I've incorporated that exact same embellishment on a Christmas ornament.

Love your pastels for the Holidays ! Times sure have changed , Years ago you would never think of using these colors . They are very pretty . Still like the old time colors as well. The card is lovely , How do you Mail them ? I know it is more expensive to mail anything with decorations on them . Can't wait to see what you post next.
