Timeless Tuesday...no red and green

Well TT over at Flourishes is to do a Christmas card/project without the traditional red & green ... easy peasy as my card to be sent out is not red and or green this year. I used white card stock and embossed the snowflake pattern for my background and then with some super sparkly paper I picked up at Hobby Lobby I used a Sizzix die and cut out my two flakes. Added a little jewel in the center and found an old stamp set from Hero Arts for my rejoice phrase which I stamped in as close to the color I could, using SU's razzle dazzle raspberry or something like that and I did a second generation to get the color to soften up a bit. Fini and to send these beauties off in the mail I of course had to put a crinkled piece of cs in the front of the card . This soft beauty of a card is as easy as punkin pie because I did all my embossing and die cutting and then just sat and slapped it all together.
Christmas shopping...oh dear what a dilema. Bought and took back 3 articles already and I'm getting too old for the hassel. Me thinks a card with some green stuff in it would be easier but my grass is no longer green so I guess that means putting in currency instead. Just kidding. Have a great week fellow stampers.

This is a beauty of a card! Sort of soft but sparkly at the same time. Well done. Slammed thumb in car door here so everything else will go in Christmas bags...my wrapping if done I'm afraid!

What a great card for a day like this, Pat! Just came in from the great out of doors ice rink, yow wee, one careful iceborne step after another, grab onto something solid, admire the frost-laden trees and shrubs, examine fog layers, scope out the next landmass inwhich a step is to be taken! Oh, the photos camera bugs should be snapping today!
Your card will be in the middle of those snaps. Simple, lovely, to the point! Rejoice! Hey, Pat, that idea bout crinkled paper to guard the embellies is so smart. You go, girl!
Keep Looking UP!
