Christmas Cheer!

this color combo was a bit of a challenge for me! But i always tend to gravitate to Christmas cards, so that is what i made! it's a little unconventional in the color scheme, but that's what makes it interesting, right?

One thing i believe requires explanation is the large ornament. i was not able to entirely fit the stamp on the piece i cut out with my Framelits Die, but i stamped the words (that had been colored with my Markers)on Whisper White, then used the actual Die itself to trace the OUTSIDE of the die and cut the white piece. The Summer Starfruit piece WAS cut using the Die, but i used my scissors to cut it in half horizontally, then just glued the pieces on the top and bottom of the white piece.   I also sponged White Craft ink on the snowflakes and added a little glitter to them (which is hard to see in the photo, but adds so much in person!)
