Crafters Of Faith ~ Snow

Today is the last day of the month and I am here to welcome you to my Crafters of Faith card! I am blessed to have you stop by and celebrate New Year’s Eve with us! The Crafters of Faith blogging group is a joyous blending of Christian friends ~ joined together to fellowship, share our faith, build friendships and craft together!

Kelly provided us with our December Challenge--

For December, we wish to "SNOW" you our winter inspired Crafter of Faith cards!  We are to create a card/project using a snowy-winter theme and "ring in the new year with glitter and bling!" Your winter/snow card creation should reflect the beauty of the gift of the season - snow, winter, snowflakes, etc and include bling and glitter to ring in the joy of what will be!

I realize I am posting a Christmas type card—however I knew I wanted to use my most favorite of all time Stampin’ Up set—Lovely as a Tree.  And, I found this perfect saying as a part some DSP I considered using.  The colors all came together rather well I think…………………..   The glitter is on the trees-Iridescent Ice embossing powder and the blink is the silver brads and snowflake! 

Here is the inside of my card.

Image/Sentiment—Stampin’ Up Lovely as a Tree

Cardstock—SU Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Deck the Halls Designer Paper

Ink—SU White Craft Ink

Accessories—Silver Round and Snowflake Brads; Cherry Cobbler Quilted Satin Ribbon; Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder;

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you do check out the other Snowy Creations from the wonderful ladies in the Crafters of Faith group! The blog list on the left side--please check out all of the cards.

Yeah! Let's use that "Lovely as a Tree" stamp set! It is a classic and has been around for many years. I think many of us would go into mourning if they retired that set. Of course, many of us would be the lucky ones to have purchased it! As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I want to thank you for using (so beautifully) our stamps and other products. :)
