Hello to all my friends! I hope you didn't give up on me these last few weeks. I've been on a crafting and blogging break. My creativity just up and left for a while and I decided not to fight it. Sometimes you just have to walk away and not force it. I actually took the time to do some cleaning of my craft room. The closet,in particular. I store my less used supplies in there; from paint to 12x12 papers. It was a huge mess and things fell on top of you when you opened the doors! AACK! Thank goodness I feel rested, refreshed and creative again! I have been on a creative frenzy lately and have a Christmas card for you today.
A blue and white beauty totally encrusted with glitter and jewels! The star of this show is definitely the stunning blue and white color scheme. There's just something dramatic about two bold colors together. I've used stamps from JustRite Papercraft; Signs Of Christmas (sentiment) and Snowflakes Vintage Labels Seven (label). I've also used many different Spellbinders dies as well. Everything I used on this project is linked at the end of the post with the exception of the patterned paper. It came from a 6x6 paper pad by America Crafts called Jack Frost. I found it recently at my local TJ Maxx. I could not find an online source for this product, my apologies. If you have a TJ Maxx in your town, check them out. I almost always find cool paper crafting supplies in there on the cheap. The jingle bells are from Micheal's. They can be found over in the Christmas crafting section.
My layout is based on the current challenge at Cardabilities:
