I love glitter and thought the SU! Baroque Motifs set would make a nice glittery background on a simple Christmas card with holly leaves from Winter Foliage, inked up with a marker to separate the leaves from the berries. I just love the nestabilities tags I got when sentiments fit perfectly inside!
After I made the above card, I got the idea to make a holiday wreath with the holly, just inking them up & stamping in a circle (a little tedious but look how pretty it turned out, what do you think?) I ended up having to cut out the wreath because I smudged the inside (don't you love it you can salvage just about every boo boo made with stamping?) a lot of my cards turn out better than expected because of it. I like the fact that you can see the detail on the snowflake cb folder inside of it.
p.s. thanks for all the prayers & thoughts y'all have sent our way regarding the untimely, tragic death of our cousin last week. We went to the funeral on Sunday and I have to tell you, out of all these years of losing family & friends it was the first time it was an accident caused by another person that was the reason I was there and it has been extremely hard to deal with (unfortunately it was not for others since another cousin was murdered by someone about 20 yrs ago - I know it brought back a lot of memories for John).
We were told by her dad that her boss is planning a $100,000 reward for information on the person responsible. Of course we all know that will not bring Cathy back but it will bring some closure to family & friends who feel robbed by the irresponsible actions of the person who caused Cathy to not be around to share her love & assist in the raising of her 3 children who are dealing with more than any child should at their ages, especially during this 'most wonderful time of the year' The only thing I find solace in is that Cathy will be spending Christmas with Jesus this year (thanks to Jada who shared a heartfelt poem with me about that after I heard the news).
