Snowflakes with Perfect Pearls Christmas card

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

Hello everyone,

I don't know why time is in such a rush these days but it's hard to believe it's been 2 weeks since our last Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge. Never mind, we only have just over 8 weeks until Christmas, and if you have been joining us this year, you will have amassed quite a stash to make things easier for you in the busy days of December. This time Cindy has given us a bingo challenge, and I decided to go with the bottom row -  die cuts, punches and pearls.

Challenge - Bingo

2 designer papers
Die cuts

We are sponsored this time by

Stamp and Create

I used a snowflake digital cutting file from Fred She Said and cut it out on my Silhouette Cameo,

then I used this as a stencil on some black card. I pushed Versamark Ink through the snowflakes and then added blue Perfect Pearls (the pearl part of the challenge). I used an Avery Elle Die from the Custom Panels set to cut the card, and stamped and embossed a greeting on blue card through the aperture.

I punched a red heart out to finish it off.

Why not pop over to the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge and see lots of inspiration from the Design Team.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges

Thanks for stopping by
