Winter Wonderland

These are not your traditional Holiday colors, but with the new Candy Cane Christmas DSP, it works. I love the Baja Breeze and Real Red together...I would have never paired these up on my own!

Believe it or not, these images come from the same two stamp sets I used on my last card: Jolly Old Saint Nick and Bright Christmas. Talk about getting two sets that perfectly coordinate and are so versatile.

I'm not sure if you can tell in the photo or not, but this card has a lot of Dazzling Diamonds glitter to create a true Winter Wonderland. I used two-way glue to dot each snowflake and to edge the banner, then I let the glitter flow. We were laughing at my last workshop about how long your glitter lasts. You think you're using a lot, but in reality, this glitter will last a lifetime. It adds the perfect finishing touch. Hope you like it!

Stamps: Jolly Old Saint Nick & Bright Christmas
Paper: Real Red, Baja Breeze and Whisper White Cardstock; Candy Cane Christmas DSP
Ink: Basic Gray and Basic Black Classic Pads, Black Stazon
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Scalloped Edge Punch, Two-Way Glue Pen, Baja Breeze Satin Ribbon (Retired), Blender Pen, Real Red Stampin Marker and Pop Dots/Dimensionals
