about my card:
The sentiment is from Essential Holiday Elegance, and I used the Flurries background stamp on both the background panel (in white) and the sentiment layer (in Aqua Mist). I stamped the sentiment layer before I removed it from the die (Nestabilities Labels 8). The background panel is tied with a piece of white herringbone glimmer ribbon and the card is adorned with a snowflake that I die-cut from a sheet of white glitter paper. I used the Dimensional Dots Assortment Pack to hold everything on (LOVE those things!).
From here, you're headed to Deb Felts’ blog. Enjoy the hop!
