The Snowflake Spot Card!

It's November already! Time to get those Holiday cards started if you haven't already. This card was another one of our October stamp club projects. Again I can't take credit for the design of this great card. It is another one I copied (with minor changes) from the monthly swap I do with a small group of other local demonstrators (this was Laura Palmer's card swap).

This is a card that doesn't require a lot of stamping and no special techniques were used, but I love the color combination. The layering on the Basic Black really makes the Bashful Blue and the Certainly Celery (card stock and designer paper) stand out. And the Square Ice Brad (turned diagonally) in the center of the snowflake (from The Snowflake Spot set) really adds some bling to the card!

Speaking of Designer Paper, there is a GREAT special in this month - the Paper Party Promo! Between now and the end of November, you can get a FREE pack of Designer Series paper for each 3 packs you purchase. This includes the 16 monochromatic paper packs, the 2 Designer papers in the Holiday mini, and the other 17 patterned papers in the catalog (see page 170-173). All the Designer Papers are double sided (patterns on both sides) and thicker than typical patterned papers. You can see "swatches" of each of the paper packs HERE.

Stamp Sets: The Snowflake Spot
Inks: Bashful Blue
