a seriously BRIGHT christmas!

Why is it that I really generally despise making Christmas cards? I hate it! Unless. . . .I am using some sort of funky color combination. Pink and green tends to be my go-to Christmas card color scheme. (Actually, pink and green tends to be one of my go-to color combos all year long!)

I used Pear and Cotton Candy to create this card, along with the Evergreen stamp set. To create my snow drifts, I simply tore a few layers of cardstock, and tucked my trees between them. Then I punched some circles from white cardstock, adhered them, and covered them in Liquid Glass to create my sparkly, shiny snow.

As you read this, I am at my parents' house, probably rifling through all my mom's scrappy stuff, seeing what I can steal and take home with me!! ;) And I'm taking a stack of cardstock to punch circles with. I only have two little circle punches of my own (and no room to store more than that, anyway!) So I always fill up a Ziplock bag of assorted punched circles when I go home!!! (Especially the scalloped ones!!!!) So thankful for my mommy and all her toys!!!!

Have a great weekend!

Very cute card. Really like how you made the snow 'drops/flakes' using a small hole punch and added Liquid Glass.
