Snow Swirled Card

I finished the first set of my Christmas cards yesterday. We had a blast of Arctic air here last week so I've been avoiding going out to my stamp room – way to cold up there!

I found this design on Robin Merriman's blog – Trinity Designs

I made my own modifications to her design by using 1” strips of Night of Navy cardstock run through the Big Shot with my Petals-A-Plenty embossing folder instead of ribbon. And I placed rhinestones in a few of the stars on the tree instead of the top – but other than that I stuck to her basic design and measurements for the cardstock.

I stamped the greeting from the Snow Swirled set on the inside of the card with some snowflakes in the corners.

I love how with just two colours of cardstock, one inkpad, one embossing folder, and some rhinestones you can have such a beautiful card. Quick and simple – and stunning!
