A christmas card in January......

Yup it's a Christmas card but hey it gets me started for this years...I actually thought of this design last night as I went to sleep... don't you love it when it hits you as you lay your head down...

Well I went with it this morning and I don't think it looks to bad and of course i started this year looking for the perfect sentiments to go inside my cards and you know this one had to have one too. Well I went to Two Peas in a bucket and did a search on snowflakes. I found the perfect poem to go inside this card.



This card was fun but I may add more to it latter... I love this stamp out of SAB set So Many Scallops. I can see using it alot of different ways even maybe using the faux metal with it...

I made the circle in the front of the card using the tab punch it is perfect for making a circle to go around your scallop circles.
I printed out my verse on a piece of shimmery white cardstock.. I stamped my image using blue bayou classic ink and did some faux stitching with a white gel pen around the edge of the card...

Hope you enjoyed today's card... I off to try a sketch out on CPS. I'll be back with that alittle latter have a great afternoon.

Supplies:
Stamps: So Many Scallops
Cardstock: Blue bayou, shimmery white
Ink: blue bayou
Accessories: white gel pen, soft sky stitched ribbon, tab punch

What a simple yet striking card. I love the circle trick with the tab punch! I knew about it, but I didn't know if was the perfect size to go around a scallop image/punch. Thanks for that tip!
