Snowflake Wreath

Well, I'm back! Did you miss me?!?!?  With the holidays right around the corner things are crazy in my neck of the woods.  My husband and I cut down our Christmas tress this past Saturday and we've been decorating it and the house ever since.  Year after year I forget what a huge job decorating can be, but as soon as all those bins come up from the basement, I'm quickly reminded! 

I'm glad to be off of work today and that majority of the decorating is done.  I have a date with my stamping room! :-) After several days without stamping I'm starting to have withdrawls!  

Just a little secret...today's card is just a "fill-in," it's not one I recently created. I just haven't had a chance to show it to you, which makes it perfect for today!  I actually made it back in April when I went to Shackapolooza with all of my Stamp Shack friends.  I cased it from one of the cards my friend Kathy had, and she cased it from an idea she saw on SCS.  

The snowflake used to create the wreath is from PSX.  I know PSX is a retired stamp company and if you like this idea, DRS Designs has a similar wreath that could be used to create this card perfectly.  You can see DRS Designs Snowflake Wreath stamp and all of their winter images HERE.  I'll be showing you a card made with that Snowflake Wreath very soon.  Stay tuned for that.

As for today's project, I stamped the PSX Snowflake in SU! Ballet Blue and added a dot of fine glitter to the center of each snowflake.  I used my EK Success snowflake border punch to decorate the light blue panel--this is one of my favorite punches! I think it complements the stamped wreath perfectly! The sentiment, also stamped in SU! Ballet Blue is from SU!.



Here's a close up of the wreath.  The glitter dot dresses up each snowflake & gives this card the right amount of elegance!

Well, It's time for me to get off this computer & go stamp!

Hope your holiday preparations are going well,
until next time,

Smiles,
Jennifer

Very pretty. The colours are very wintery. Good luck with all your decorating. It certainly is lots of work.

Gorgeous card! I love snow flakes as long as they are not falling from the sky!
You only need a snow flake stamp and you could create a wreath. With a clear snow flake stamp it wouldn't be too hard to do. Just lightly pencil a circle and use it as a guide to position your snow flakes. I think I might just try that!
