Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!

I've been pouting lately and I apologize.
We are moving across Canada soon and this has caused a stall in my creativity.
I will be back in 2016, more grateful for what I have and who I know.
Meanwhile I will show you my mom's Christmas cards that I created for her this year...

She wanted something more elegant this year and helped me choose the design.
My friend Tesa at R&R Scrapbooking created the original card and we tweeked it for mom's taste and ease of mailing. 
Here's the formula:
  • The die is a 6x6 die and I will have to look up where I got it!
  • I cut shimmer white cardstock to 5 3/4x 4 1/4" and die cut it on one side of the die and the other to give slightly different scenes.
  • Matted this on top of the same size paper cut from Bo Bunny's Snow Print
  • Matted this on a piece of 6 1/2x 4 3/4" silver cardstock.  Yep, that's two shades of silver there too, to give more variety
  • Finally it is all placed on a white 6.5x5" card
Repeat 40 times and you've got cards ready to mail!

Hugs and happiness to you all!
See you in 2016!
