Christmas in August

I suppose the Happy Harvest card didn't quite do the trick...  It's still hot in Texas, and I'm still dreaming of cooler weather... Maybe a white Christmas...? lol

My hostess last week requested a Christmas theme for her workshop, and I will post a couple of those cards for you, too.  We had a lot of fun!!

This card looks black-and-white, but it actually is not.  (Unfortunately my camera is having issues.)  The card itself is Night of Navy, along with matching grosgrain ribbon and ink.  The Whisper White cardstock was embossed with the Flurry Embossing Folder, and then the snowflakes were highlighted (fully or partially, depending on the look you want) with Crystal Effects.  Once that is dry, you can add the sentiment from the Bells & Boughs stamp set and add the ribbon/bow, and your card is complete.  Very simple, but the shimmer of the Crystal Effects makes it feel fancy!

This card is not an exact copy, but was definitely inspired by another demonstrator.  I did not make note of her name -- my apologies!
