Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop ~ Holiday Catalog Creations

Good morning and welcome to the Stylin' Stampin' Squad Holiday edition!  If you've just come from Jennifer's blog, I hope you enjoyed her creation as much as I did...she has amazing talent!  And a big congrats to Jennifer on making Founder's Circle this year! Way to go friend!!!

I held off on ordering many things from the holiday catalog, so I was a bit limited with what I could do this month, but I hope you like what I came up with. 
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Real Red, Eastern Elegance, Silver Foil Sheets
Ink ~ VersaMark
Stamp Set ~ Festive Flurry
Other Supplies ~ Expression Thinlits, Festive Flurry Framelits, Circle Card Thinlits Die, Frosted Finishes Embellishments, Real Red Taffeta Ribbon, Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, Whisper White Bakers Twin, Silver Embossing Powder, Red Sharpie

This is definitely not a mailable card, but it makes for a cute decoration.  I cut the circle out of the middle of the card and attached the snowflake using the Baker's Twine.  I wish I would have used fishing line to attach the snowflake to give it more of a floating look, but after fighting to get it just right with the Bakers's Twine, I wasn't about to take it all apart :-) The snowflake in the center is 3-D...3 snowflakes cut out, folded in half and glued together.  (I was having flashbacks of creating the ornament from last year's Holiday Catalog!)  I layered the two smallest snowflakes and added the Frosted Finishes embellishments in the center.  Even though I don't have any of the Winter Frost DSP yet, I made things work with the Eastern Elegance DSP.  And the new foil paper....LOVE IT!  I love how pretty it looks embossed and layering it behind the Real Red "Merry" was just what the card needed.

Now head on over to Diana's page and see what she has in store for us this month!

After you're done hopping along with all of us, be sure to head over to Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration to meet the new Design Team!  We are all ready to inspire you to CREATE!
