The Same.....But Different!

Good morning everyone!
I don't know about you, but we are finally digging out from that monster snow storm we got over the weekend. Hopefully you are in a warmer clime and enjoying your days leading up to Christmas shovel free!
I do love having the snow on the ground for a White Christmas though - I just need to get all my STUFF done, kwim?

Anyway, enough chatter.....
Don't know if you remember this card below, but I designed it a few months back for one of the Stamping 411 Sketch Challenges. My regular stamp campers liked it so much that they requested it for WOW! Christmas card class.

Well, I cut way too many pieces for that class and had a lot of the Elegant Eggplant, Brushed Gold and Very Vanilla pieces left over.
So, what do you do with leftovers? Make HASH! hahaha, ok, no, not really!
You design a new card!

I needed one last card for my last card class of the year last week and this was the perfect thing! (Ignore the purple smudge on the front - it wasn't there before class, but when things get taken out of the plastic envelope mayhem and foolishness occur!)

This card uses the tree from Snow Swirled and the greeting is from Berry Christmas, all stamped in Elegant Eggplant. The punches for the greeting are the Large Oval and the Designer Label. I used Elegant Eggplant Narrow Grosgrain and of course some Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the tree. It's topped off with a Gold Brad and that was that!

I made a similar version for some of my downline Christmas cards as well as another one that I'll show you tomorrow. It's a remake too!

Have a warm Monday! It's going up to 30 degrees here today from a low of 11! WooHoo! And we are headed to the rink so Emma can skate in her ice show that was supposed to be yesterday - yay, more cold weather! :)
Good thing I have my fuzzy boots!
