Vanilla Sparkle Snowflake

Mornin' folks!
I am so happy to be sitting here in my jammies and typing my post for you, knowing that I don't have to leave the house today until after 4pm! Doesn't mean I'm not working, but I at least get to chill and enjoy my coffee today. I'll be in the studio most of the day getting ready for Stampin' at the Firehouse on Thursday - probably won't get to play today with my box of NEW Stampin' Up! goodies that came yesterday, but at least I'll be creating! That's always good.

I did stop everything yesterday and make two cards with some of the fun new treats that are coming out in the Occasions Mini Catalog in January. So fun!! I can't wait to share them with you!!
But for now, I'm still focused on Christmas. And my 20th Wedding Anniversary. And Emma's 14th Birthday. And our friends Brandon and Ellen's Wedding. Yep, if it sounds like it, it's true. Things are a little extra crazy around here this month. But it's all good, so we're just gonna go with it!

We head out to get our Christmas tree tonight and FINALLY decorate it! A friend posted on Facebook the other day about describing in one word your Christmas decorations. I put "sparse". I literally have a wreath on the door, a flag in the holder and a wreath and cute towels in the studio bathroom. Got my poinsettia yesterday, but it's currently sitting in the middle of the kitchen table waiting for me to place it.
What's that song? "I need a little Christmas, right this very minute.". I don't know the rest of it, but that line describes my home right now.

How 'bout a little Christmas for you today?
Here's a card I designed for my Last Chance Christmas Card classes last week, and I really like this one a lot! It's pretty simple, and I think I'll be making a few more of them.....

I used Very Vanilla cardstock and cut it at 4 1/4" x 11". It's folded in half and I then ran it through the Big Shot with the Northern Flurries Embossing Folder to texturize the front.

The embossed oval is a piece of cardstock that was done with the Oval Folder in the Embosssed Frames set with the Big Shot. It was trimmed out with Paper Snips. I stamped the greeting from the Word Play stamp set in Real Red ink on more scrap cardstock and punched it out with the Extra Large Oval Punch. Those layers were adhered together with Stampin' Dimensionals and to the card front as well.

The snowflake was punched out of the polka dot glitter paper from Holly Berry Bouquet with the Snowflake Punch and adhered to the card front with a Mini Glue Dot.
A Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon bow and some Basic Rhinestones finish off this very simple card.

Here's a couple of the products I used to make this card:
#120902 - Northern Flurry Embossing Folder $7.95

#124004 - Holly Berry Bouquet Designer Paper $12.95 (12 sheet pack)

You can find these products and everything else Stampin' Up! in my Online Stampin' Store. Remember, the Holiday Mini Catalog is winding down - you have until January 4th to purchase your favorites! Most of what's in that awesome catalog will not be available anymore after that date, so don't miss out on something you really, really want!
