The Holiday Season has arrived

Today the sun is shining and it is very chilly in the Northwest.   Trees are turning, elections are almost here, and more hummingbirds are visiting every day.   Today is a great day!   

Christmas is just around the corner and I want to give you a quick and easy idea for a beautiful card.  I made two of them with my favorite colors - Purple and Blue.  

They are so beautiful.   Both were made with Feels Like Frost DSP.   I love the images on this DSP.  They are so lovely and make you feel like you just took the best picture EVER!  The nice thing about this DSP is you have gorgeous images on one side and the other is silver images.   

Here is a card I made with the silver side.

I embossed it with Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder.   I saw this technique done last year and I wanted to see if I could copy the technique.   The card base is Cherry Cobbler.   This gives you an idea about how attractive this DSP is and how amazing it is to add texture or a picture to your cards.

This card base is Highland Heather cardstock.   It measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4".  The next layer is Purple Posy and it is 4" x 5 1/4".   The Feels like Fost DSP measures 3 3/4" x 5".   I added a Purple tri-color ribbon to the bottom of the card.   I thought it brought out all the purple in the card.  The sentiment was done in Highland Heather ink.  The words are from the December "Joy to the World" Paper Pumpkin kit.   I mixed up a spritzer of Frost White Shimmer Paint with alcohol in a Spritzer bottle.  It adds more shimmer and frost to the card.  

This card base is Seaside Spray.   I love this color!   It is one of the 2019-2022 In Colors.   You will want to buy an extra ink refill and card stock.   This color will be missed at the end of this year.   I would love to see this color be added as a permanent color.  (Measurents are the same as the above card.)  Next layer is Night of Navy then Feels like Frost DSP.  The Sentiment is from Decembers Paper Pumpkin kit stamped in Night of Navy ink and the ribbon is Seaside Spray 1/4" Metallic.   I also Spritzed this card with Frost White Shimmery Paint.

Can you see the Shimmer?   It is very subtle.   (It was hard to get a good picture.)  

Hope you will go into your craft room and create some wonderful quick and easy cards.   You can head over to my Facebook page where I have more creative ideas to help you out!
