Fab Polar Party

It's finally starting to feel like Christmas!  Our mountains are covered in snow and it's cold outside!  I'm not a huge fan of the winter months, but I always love some cold weather and snow around Christmas.  Hoping the snow stays around for a few weeks so I can take my kiddos sledding over their Christmas break from school.
Got some Christmas stamping done today..yay!  This was not an easy task because I REALLY want to be playing with all of my new stamps.  But, I've got to focus on the last bit of Christmas crafting and get goodie bags done for my twins' birthday party next weekend.  In my effort to ink up all of my Christmas sets before the season is over, I pulled out the fun Polar party set this morning and got to work. I created a few cards, but this one was one of my favorites.  The colors I used were inspired by the latest challenge over at Fab Friday.   I've been all over the non-traditional Christmas colors this year.  This great color combo has both traditional and non-traditional colors...perfect!
It doesn't show very well in this picture (darn dark basement), but the edges of the Crumb Cake layer are sponged with some white craft ink to give the card a little "dusting" of snow. 

Supplies Used:

Paper ~ Gumball Green, Pool Party, Crumb Cake
Ink ~ Gumball Green, Real Red, Primrose Petals, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, White Gel Pen, Whisper White Craft
Stamp Set ~ Polar Party
Other Supplies ~ Primrose Petals Stitched Satin Ribbon , Dazzling Details (Clear & Cherry Cobbler)

It has been so nice to not have a million different things going on this weekend.  Not only did I get lots of stamping time, we've had some great family time too.  This is what weekends are for! 

Happy Stamping!
