I made several cards. The first two were made with scraps from the third card pictured here. I used the Colonial White card pack for the base and envelopes. The patterned paper is Frosted, the solid colors are Champagne and Crystal Blue. I thought these colors complimented each other nicely. I love the way CTMH papers coordinate so well!
Two rectangles and a square for a simple card with pretty snowflake stamping
Same design – two rectangles and a square with snowflake stamping. I added a little silver shimmer trim to give it some bling with the neutral colors.
The main card design has more details with the addition of a sparkly snowflake, ribbon and a banner. I continued the snowflake theme with the stamping. I thought the Peace sentiment went with the peaceful theme of the card.
Sparkly snowflake card
The snowflake was cut at 2″ using the Art Philosophy CTMH Cricut cartridge (item #Z1686). The banner was cut at 2-1/2″ using the same cartridge. To purchase CTMH supplies visit my online shop at http://cydneyfowlercreations.ctmh.com or your consultant’s site if you have one already.

I used Crystal glitter glue and ribbon I had on hand.
The Peace card includes Champagne paper cut at 3-3/4″ by 5″, Frosted cut at 3-1/4″ by 4-1/2″. The ribbon is cut at 6″ long. The other two cards have rectangles cut at 2-1/2″ by 2″ and a 2″ square. I didn’t include a photo, but I stamped the inside sentiment on a 3″ by 1-1/4″ colonial white paper and used adhesive to place inside the card. This saves paper so you don’t accidentally ruin the inside of the card with a stamping “oops” and that does happen to me occasionally no matter how careful I am! I used the stamp set Yuletide Greetings, Item # D1553 and it says, “Wishing you a holiday season that sparkles and shines.”
I hope you are inspired by my cards! Your next stop is Lilian’s blog – click here. Thanks for stopping by. Happy Crafting and Happy Holidays to you!
