Serene Snowflakes Christmas Card

I saw a card that Chat at Me My Stamps and I blog and I just loved it so I HAD to make it.  (please note that her site contains music so you may want to be ready with your volume button and because of the music it takes a bit longer to load) So back to this beautiful card.  I didn't have the stamp set she used but I did find a snowflake in the "Serene Snowflakes" set that worked just fine.

I used satin ribbon instead of the grosgrain ribbon.  I didn't have the same "Merry Christmas" that Chat used but I did find one that fit.  Mine is from the "Four the Holidays" set.  I added a tiny rhinestone to the "i" in Christmas. If you squint you can see it!!! LOL  Just click on the photo and it will enlarge and you can see the details then.

When I made my version of this card I stamped the two snowflakes in the corners and then added the one in the center.  It seemed like the best way to do them.  

The colors here are very simple, Whisper White and Marina Mist.  I have to say that Marina Mist is one of my favorite colors and I've probably bought about 10 packs of it since the new catalog came out!!!  I think I have one full pack left.  I even used it on our Christmas cards this year!!  And now that I'm thinking about it, since I have them done I should print out the mailing labels so I can get them all finished up on Thanksgiving weekend and get them in the mail the following Monday!!  I have not been this early with my Christmas cards in years!! I LOVE it.  Though I shouldn't be bragging about it yet, I still have to sign them, add a letter to a few of them and get the labels and stamps on plus seal them up!!!  So they are not 100% ready to go but I'm hoping that Thanksgiving weekend it will all come together for me.  

This was a very quick and easy card to make.  I just wish there was something else to use for the ribbon bow so it wouldn't cost extra to mail.  Though I will probably make a few to add to Christmas gifts since I LOVE the card so and want to make sure a few of my friends and family get to see it. 

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
