I started with Pool Party cardstock for the cardbase and then added a layer of Marina Mist cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder. Next I added a piece of This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper that was matted with Basic Black cardstock.
The stamp greeting is from the Tin of Tags stamp set and was stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock with Marina Mist ink before cutting it out with the Big Shot and Layering Circles Framelits. Before attaching the greeting I added a little piece of Pool Party Stitched Satin Ribbon to peek out with little tails. The final touch was to cut a small star out of Silver Foil Paper using the Big Shot and the Stars Collection Framelits (a dimensional was used to attach the star for added dimension).
I wanted to make a card that didn't use the traditional red and green colors and change things up and these colors with the texture and patterns really work together (black snowflakes, go figure). This is actually a card that has a lot of pop but isn't super complicated so you could easily make this in multiples and is definitely post office friendly (which is perfect for the holidays). The other design team members are sharing projects using their favorite accessories so make sure to check them out for fun!
