Flourishes is celebrating Christmas in July with 25% off all Christmas stamp sets!  It’s never too early to think about making those Christmas cards, right?!
I pulled out the lovely Snow Wonderful set and used the snowy cabin scene.  With the heat and humidity we’ve been having it’s a refreshing image!
First, let me apologize for the soft photo…I was too lazy to pull out the tripod, and an overhead light went out in my studio so…

The image was stamped on Flourishes Classic White card stock with Memento ink in Cocoa.   I used lots of ultra fine glitter on the snow for a super frosty look.  It was colored with Copic markers.  I used the coordinating Tailor-Made Classic Keyhole die set to cut out the image.  I also traced the die on red card stock and hand cut it to use as a mat below the image.  The patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Jovial pad.   A Martha Stewart punch was used for the pine border and I tied some small bells on the gingham ribbon
Christmas inspiration abounds with the lovely ladies of the Flourishes design team below! 
And make sure you head over to the store to get your favorite Christmas sets at 25% off!  Hurry, the sale ends July 31st!

Beautiful. Love the set and the Basic Grey papers. I suppose I need to work on Christmas earlier than post Thanksgiving. TGIF :)
