Pool Party Christmas Card


 I love how this Kaisercraft sentiment die, the Lawn Fawn stitched snowflake, and the SU! softly fallen snow embossing folder always combine to make quick and easy Christmas cards! I've made quite a few in different colors, and the one I'm sharing today was done with Pool Party cardstock from SU! I added a touch of mirrored silver cardstock for the snowflake center, adding a big silver brad for the finishing touch.

I'm sharing this one over at the Cuttlebug Mania challenge which is embossing. I used my Big Shot to emboss the background panel.

Here's wishing you all a fabulous Monday and a great cyber Monday shopping experience!

Just a gorgeous card, Carol. I love every part of it. I especially like that the colors are non-traditional, which really seems to be to my liking these days. That mirrored card stock and brad are the ideal add-ons for that pretty snowflake.I hope you day is as nice as your card, without the snow of course.

I love Pool Party, and I'm also all about non-traditional colors for holidays, so this card is perfect in my opinion. :)
