Hello! I hope all is well with y’all today.
I decided to join in with Freshly Made Sketches today — I haven’t played along with them recently and just loved this week’s sketch, so this was a great time to jump back in.
My card base is Garden Green (gasp! I know!). I cut a Real Red panel, then embossed the gorgeous Winter Wonder snowflake on the bottom two-thirds. I sponged Real Red ink over the snowflake, just for a little extra depth. Then I sponged all the way around the edge of the Real Red cardstock. The paper (which actually has the words “Oh! what fun” on it) is from the Merry Music Specialty designer series paper. I cannot get enough of this paper!
I thought the “oh, what fun” sentiment from the Oh, What Fun stamp set was pretty perfect for this card. I heat embossed it in silver, then added a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper behind it. The snowflake is from the Trim Your Stocking thinlits, and I finished off the card with a Clear Faceted Gem. I love these things!
I stamped the inside with a stamp from Hang Your Stocking and also added a strip of the Merry Music paper.

Today’s card is super easy to put together. I made it from some scraps on my desk — a strip of designer series paper left from another card and a panel embossed with a snowflake — the left edge of the snowflake didn’t emboss for some reason, but I didn’t want to waste the whole piece of paper, so I just hid the un-embossed part under the paper.
I just love this sentiment, and the font! It’s from the Ready for Christmas stamp set that coordinates with the Christmas Staircase thinlits (you get can them together in a bundle for 10% off). Love it! I finished the card off with some Black Rhinestone Jewels.
I hope you like the card, and if you happen to have some scraps on your desk, I hope you’ll make a scrap card, too.
You can find all the products I used to make the card in my online Stampin’ Up! store.
