My Christmas card was fairly easy…the wonderful Snowflake Reverse die did all the work for me! I found some coordinating papers in a pretty color then die cut the snowflakes in white to put on top. I used just the Merry of the Merry Christmas die & stamped the small Christmas w/ Distress oxide ink & added it under the top layers.

Here’s a look at the inside. I used some of the snowflakes from the front die cut.

A very fashionable site Stacy chose for the Inspiration Challenge (IC676). I had a hard time picking just one. But I kept coming back to THIS dress w/ the red top & splatter of red on the skirt. To me it looked like it looked perfect for a Christmas card.

For my fairly simple card, I die cut the white front & red topper then used an angled border die to cut off the bottom of the red piece. I stamped the white part w/ different size snowflakes & also a little splatter using the candy apple oxide ink. On the red topper, I stamped the same images w/ Versamark but didn’t think they showed up very well so I stamped a few of them w/ the frost white pigment ink. The greeting was added along w/ a single ornament then some sheer ribbon & some glitter white & red snowflakes.

Here’s a look at the inside.

I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club October Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. 

For my Christmas card, I stamped & white embossed the Snowflake Package. I used a reverse mask around it then sponged on the tumbled glass & peacock feathers inks. A lipstick orange Copic was used to carefully fill in the bow & ribbon then I added a little Wink of Stella on top of the red. When I die cut it I did a little out of the box to keep the bow intact.

The large background is also emboss resist & I used some of the many snowflake images from the large bg stamp. I just cut the lg image apart so I could use the ones I wanted more easily. Only the first part of the greeting was used below the present so I put the rest on the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
