Season's Greetings

Well I think winter has arrived.  We woke up to six inches of snow and it is still snowing hard!  It is beautiful but we planned to drive down to Spokane and looks like the highways are very bad.  Maybe I will have to stay home and do more creating!

I love creating cards with all those new Nellie Snellen embossing folders.  This one is the "Holly" folder.  Isn't it beautiful.  I decided to give the embossing some color so used "Peeled Paint" Distress Ink Reinkers with the Ranger Water Brush to color the holly leaves and "Worn Lipstick" Distress Ink on the berries.  Red Stickles was added over the berries once the card was finished.  To color the ribbons down the side, I used the Perfect Medium Brush to add ink over the embossed ribbon then added Rangers Detail Silver embossing powder and heat set.

The beautiful ornament is the Memory Box "Snowflake Ornament".  It was die cut using shiny silver card stock.  I glued it to a piece of pearlized red card stock with "Glue N Seal" and cut around the edges.  It was attached with dimensional tape.  A silver cord was used to make a bow and placed at the top of the ornament.  The beautiful sentiment is from the JustRite "Large Fancy Holiday Sentiments" stamp set.  I love the font on all the sentiments in this set. It was also silver embossed.

Hi Selma,

Sorry to hear about your outing being cut off because of snow. I like snow but the longer it waits to get here the better. Love this gorgeous card. I have a couple of Nelli folders and really like them as well. Going to your blog most every morning to see what you have created is a great joy for me - your crafting ability is totally awesome.

Hey there Selma! I'm with Judy ... I'm not in any hurry to drag out the snowblower and sorry it cancelled your plans. But look on the +side ... you get to do more crafting to inspire all of us!
This creation is BEAUTIFUL! I have that die and sorry to say I've never used it ... thanks for inspiration, it's now on my table ready to create some holiday cards!
Be careful out there and HUGS from OHIO!
