Season's Greetings

What a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend it has been...a delicious meal with family, a little bargain shopping, a dinner and movie date with my hubby, Christmas decorating, and of course...lots of papercrafting!
How many of my stamping friends had this book as a child?! It was one of my all time favorites...and a perfect inspiration for my project today!
This scrappy holiday card was inspired by the Cover Art Inspiration, retro sketches 39, the Make It Monday 92: Layered Vellum Die Cuts, and Crazy 4 Challenges 164: Put a Bow On It.
Isn't this new paper, All is Bright by My Mind's Eye,...so completely gorgeous?! Creating the embossed, glittery vellum snowflakes was a new technique that I learned from the fabulous Melissa Phillips from the Make It Monday challenge...and I used her double bow technique, too...a little different from my usual way of making bows! Check out her fantastic tutorial video!

Stamps: Curly Cute (SU) Ink: Black Stazon (SU) Paper: Kraft CS, All is Bright (MME) Other: Big Shot, Snowflake die, Apothecary framelet, polka dot embossing folder, square punch, Baja Breeze Seam Binding, glitter (SU), buttons & twine (PTI), sewing machine, spray adhesive

That card is PERFECT for your sweet Frosty book cover! What a beautiful bow! Love the red polka dots just popping against all of the lovely snowy colors in the background. The chartreuse buttons really POP, too!
