Tis The Season Card


I wanted something clean and simple.

I started off with the standard A2 size card base in Kraft and rounded all the corners on a 1/2 inch setting on my Corner Chomper.

I used a Hampton Art stamp.  I stamped this neat image with snowflakes and the saying "tis the season" using some Versamark ink.  Then I covered it with white embossing powder and heat set it.  

I accented the centers of the snowflakes with some light blue bling.

I added some white stitching lines with my Sakura Gelly Roll pen around the image and the edges of the card.  

I tied some pretty sheer lavender ribbon in a bow.

Seems all my cards lately have been the quick and simple kind!  *LOL* I'm just itching to have some time to play around and do something a bit more elaborate... if I ever catch up on my housework. ;)
