2020 Kre8tors December Blog Hop Holiday

I am so excited to be a part of this special Kre8tors Blog Hop for December to finish off 2020 on a creative high note. Our theme is Holidays and I can't wait to see all the amazing projects shared by talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators participating in our blog hop today. I hope that you will be inspired by the ideas and projects we have to share with you.
One of my favorite things about creating cards for the holidays is all the different types of cards that you can create. Over the past few months I have created traditional, elegant, whimsical and even fancy over the top cards. But today I wanted to create a clean and simple card that reflected the peace and beauty of the season. I chose to use the stunning Feels Like Frost 6"x6" Specialty Designer Series Paper (item #150444) as the focal image for my card design and added a simple sentiment from the Curvy Christmas stamp set (item #155364). The scene I chose was a beautiful, snowy Winter forest and I just love the photo realistic look of this pretty paper. It was important to me that the sentiment not overwhelm the scene, so I chose to use the Layering Ovals Dies to create the layers to fit in the top right corner. 
Products Used:
Feels Like Frost 6" x 6" Specialty Designer Series Paper (Retiring) (item #150444)
Curvy Christmas stamp set (item #155364)
Layering Ovals Dies (item #151771)
Night Of Navy Cardstock (item #100867)
Silver Foil Sheets (item #132178)
Silver Embossing Powder (item #109131)
Basic Rhinestone Jewels (item #144220)
Stampin' Seal (item #152813)
Night Of Navy Cardstock Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" 
(Scored at 4 1/4")
Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper Layer - 5 1/4" x 4"
Night Of Navy Cardstock 
- For the sentiment oval die cut with the Layering Ovals Dies
Silver Foil 
- For the scalloped oval layer die cut with the Layering Ovals Dies
The key to this card design is the beautiful contrast between the Night of Navy card base and the designer series paper. I love the way it frames the image and brings it to life. The silver embossing for the sentiment from the Curvy Christmas stamp set coordinates with the Silver Foil scalloped oval layer that adds a touch of elegance and steps up the design. I added three small Basic Rhinestones to the card front for a touch of bling to complete the card design. This card design reminds me of when it snows in the Rocky Mountains not far from where I live and the fun family memories of holidays  past. The Feels Like Frost 6" x 6" Specialty Designer Series Paper is sadly retiring and is available only while supplies last. It is also on sale so make sure you place your order soon to avoid missing out on this beautiful paper.
