Paper Sweeties December Inspiration Challenge #26 - 'Happy Holidays'

Today I finally get to announce that I am so honored and so excited to be asked to join 
the Design Team at Paper Sweeties!!!!  Happy Dance! Happy Dance!!! 

And I get to start with this fabulous inspiration photo!
Happy Holidays!


I just love all of the cute Holiday stamps here at Paper Sweeties
So many options, so many choices!

Today I used Holly Days Stamps and Sweet Cuts to make my card. 



First, I die cut the snowflake in various places of a 4 X 51/4 panel of white card stock. I adhered this to some designer paper of the same size with foam adhesive tape. 
Next I used the Happy Days stamps and stamped the ornaments and snowflakes with Versamark Ink. I heat embossed them with gold embossing powder, and die cut them with their matching dies! Before I lifted them out of the die, I sponged them with Festive Berries and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks. The distress ink will not stick to the embossed areas.  Finally, I "hung" the ornaments with gold twine. Red Paper Sweeties sequins were added to finish the card.
Hopefully I have inspired you to join in this challenge and to to visit the Paper Sweeties Shoppe

If not...go check out my Paper Sweetie Teamies!
I know you will be inspired by them!
