Christmas in August!
It's never too early to get started on Christmas cards. I know I waited too late last year and really had to push to get them out. So, here is my first one for this year. I went with blue and cream with a touch of red. This stamp is Dasher from Stampin Up. He is inked in Ranger Distress Ink in Faded Jeans and with Icicle Stickles. The snowflake stamps are also from Stampin Up and it is called Snow Swirled. They are also inked in Faded Jeans. The ribbon is from Stampin Up as is the CS. The button is from my stash as is the ruby blings. The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes and is punched out with the scallop and oval Stampin Up punches. And lastly I did a border punch in snowflakes at the bottom of the card. This is from an EK Success punch.
I plan to enter this card in these challenges:
