A Cute Christmas!

Does it always seem like now much how you plan for the holidays you alway spend the entire month on the run?  That is definately how I've felt this month, which has left little time for "fun stamping."  You know what that is, just having fun creating with now specifice recipient in mind.  Since both Aidan and have have been sick this weekend several of the christmas parties we wer planning to go to we've had to pass so I've had some unplanned time and I was able to participate in this weeks Stamping 411 challenge. 

This weeks card uses the A Cute Christmas Stamp Set and the Candy Cane Christmas DSP, two of my favorite items this year.  The cardbase is Blushing Bride with a piece of Baja Breeze cardstock on top.  I used a piece of 5/8" Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon to wrap around the DSP and then tied a nice big bow.  The main stamp image was colored in with Stampin' Write Markers and then I added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the snow with a 2 Way Glue Pen.  The entire image was punched out with the Large Oval Punch and then layered on a piece of Garden Green cardstock that I punched with the Decorative Label Punch.

The final touch was the greeting from the Four Holidays stamp set with Early Espresso Ink.  Now check out the sketch challenge provided this week.

I love this card, it has lots of dimension and just screams happy holidays.

Hope you enjoy and have a great week!
