Four the Holidays Christmas Card

Today I'm going to share with you one of the cards from the DIVA Day Shoe Box Swap! This card was made by Sue A. There are SO many fun elements to it. Sue is a very talented stamper and I honestly have to say that I have never seen a card made by here that was not fabulous!!!

The decorative paper is from the "Deck the Halls" designer package. Now what I found fascinating here is the colors of the paper she used. These two were on my "not so favorite" list. I liked the other side of the paper much better. Well, now it's a different story!! Why is it that it takes just one sample to change your mind?? LOL

The base of the card is a piece of Crumb Cake card stock. The edges are sponged in Chocolate Chip.

"The Merry Christmas" is from the "Four the Holidays" set. A set I have and have not used much at all. That "Merry Christmas" is so elegant looking and then to do it on top of Cherry Cobbler card stock and emboss it in gold, well...need I say more?

The next layer is the piece of decorative paper that was embossed in gold on the edges. Such an elegant and beautiful touch! On top of that is another piece of decorative paper that was set on with Dimensionals.

On top of that is the scalloped circle. After punching it out it was sponged using Cherry Cobbler ink.

It's a little difficult to see but on top of that layer is a punched snowflake that was embossed in gold. SO darn pretty! On top of the snowflake is the gathered lace ribbon and the button! I just love this card.

Oh, I almost forgot. Between the layers of decorative paper we tied a piece of seam binding ribbon and set it in place with tape. The ribbon on the left side got a bit bent when I put it in the pile of cards. I'll just put it on the bottom of the pile and it will straighten out! And if that doesn't do it, a little dot of tape will take care of it.

Isn't this just the most elegant card? It's SO beautiful! Thank you Sue for your fabulous creation!
We have a HUGE snowstorm heading our way. I've heard talk of 6" to 16", cold (single digit temps) and winds. I think that constitutes a blizzard but no one has said that word yet! SO I got a lot of my running around done today and got my hair cut and highlighted too!!! Glad to get that out of the way! Just wish I were done Christmas shopping! But if I'm stuck indoors tomorrow (which doesn't usually bother me unless I know I can't or shouldn't go out!! LOL) then I want to have some stuff to do. So I'm going t wrap what gifts I have purchased and hopefully finish our Christmas cards. Those things should have been done the first part of November. Each year they get later and later. I should just make New Year's cards instead!!! LOL I need to get my workroom cleaned up and I have a few movies I want to watch too! Crank the heat up and make the most of it! I'll let you know the total snow count when it's over!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
