Snowflake Sentiments, All is Bright, Christmas Card

Did you ever see a card on the internet that you just HAD to make?  Well, this is one that I wanted to make REALLY bad.  I struggled to find some words that would fit in the space but I did manage to do it.  It's not how I would like the card to be, but it will work.  I found the original card on Pinterest.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. On top of that I had cut 1/4" x 5-1/2" piece strips (two of them) of the gold foil card stock.  I didn't have much left and I didn't want to use a 4" x 5-1/4" piece because that would be such a waste. I taped those strips to each side of the card front.

The words are from the "Snowflake Sentiments" set. I did mask off the "from our family to yours".  I stamped the words using Crumb Cake ink.  I'm thinking that Soft Suede would work too.  I stamped those words on a 5-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock.  I should have trimmed the sides a bit so more of the bulb image could show.  

The bulb image is from the "All is Bright" 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper pack (DSP).  I cut the DSP 5-1/2" x 2".  I could have cut it thinner because the amount showing is less than 2". 

The Whisper White piece on the right side was cut 5-1/2" x 3/4".  I set both Whisper White in place using Dimensionals.  And the card was done.  It's a very quick layout to play with. I do like the looks of it but I think that maybe texturing the Whisper White pieces on the front might be prettier.  Maybe!  I don't think I'd like the words textured though.  Rethinking that I would probably add the words separately if I were to texture the pieces.  But for now, it is what it is!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
