Today is one day closer to Christmas... Ahh!! I seem to be a last minute person, but this year I am bound and determined to stay on track. That includes Christmas cards! So here is my card for today, enjoy!
|Soft muted colors is what this design is all about. The light falling snow reinforces|
the soft feel of this card.

|Embossing paste and the 'Falling Snow' stencil from Simon Says Stamp were all it took to get this fantastic texture. I thought the patterned paper base to be a perfect fit for our muted angel. |
|Sentiment strip grounding was used to anchor|
the main focal image and sentiment. Partially fussy cutting around the angel and presents
then leaving a 'strip' allowed it to be only one layer.
Left/Above: Our serene angel is so pretty sitting among the presents. The color scheme seemed like a good fit for the Winter season. Right/Below: The background paper I chose to have a shiny luster for the shimmer of snow and look closely the ribbon is colored using Wink of Stella glitter pen. Lots of subtle texture.

Today I am cold.... Am I complaining? Absolutely not!! The cool crisp air is so refreshing and a welcome change from the stifling Summer heat. So, making this card got me excited for snow; I know I will totally regret saying this in 5 months, but for now it leaves me with images of soft fluffy flakes drifting down to create a magical winter wonderland. Which of course all this magic will land all over the driveway and sidewalk so shoveling will have to happen. But let's keep my vision as pure as possible for now. Okay?
Well that should do it for me. I hope you have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by my little byte of the internet. I do hope you will join us at PINspirational. It should be fun! Until then take care and happy crafting.
All the best,
