Snow Swirled Christmas Picture Card



Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
I just wanted to quickly share a card I help design for my grand kids Christmas Card. My Son, Daughter-in-law and two beautiful grandchildren are here visiting for Thanksgiving. My Daughter-in-law and I always seem to sneak back to my Stamp Room and play while she's here.
Anyway we were talking about Christmas Cards and how time is flying and she needed a easy card to do that would house a Christmas Picture. This happens to be an old photo of my sweet grandchildren but I had to share the design.
We started with Very Vanilla Card stock and cut it into a 4x12 piece. We then scored it at 3". That is the foldover part that had the tree on it. We stamped the tree in Always Artichoke and Melita put little red rhinestones in the snowbursts in the tree. The top snowflake is stamped in gold as is the right edge of the card. Melita then stamped the envelopes with the same row of snowflakes down the left side. We then matted the picture on Vanilla and Red mats. it is so pretty in person.
I hope you enjoy it, we sure are. We could add more but we decided it was pretty as is.

I so enjoy when I get together with my Daughter-in-law as we always seem to come up with something fun.
Gotta' get back to them...just had to share and say "Happy Thanksgiving!!!
