More Ski Slope!

Okay, can you tell which is my favorite Designer Paper right now?!!!

Ink:  Old Olive

Scallop Envelope Card

Good morning!!  Here's a card I made using the Big Shot Scallop Envelope Die.

Bigshot9  I used the Snow Swirled stamp set to stamp the background in Baja Breeze and Real Red.  The envelope is made with the Ski Slope designer paper, with real red grosgrain ribbon tied around it.  Then, I glued the envelope to the card base. 


The insert is made with Baja Breeze and Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the saying from the Snow Swirled stamp set, along with a partial snowflake in the upper left corner.

This is a cute and simple Christmas card--you could easily whip out 100 of these!!

Have a great day!!        

Snow Flurries & Frosty

Bigshot2  Good morning!!!  This is a criss cross card that I made using the small pennant die and the ultra cool Big Shot machine!!  The designer paper is from the Frosty collection, and I used the Snow Flurries Stamp Set.  I really like the unusual colors in the Frosty Designer Paper--a nice change from the Green/Red "normal" combo for Christmas!

Scallop Envelope Box

Look at this cute box!!!  Wouldn't this make a great teacher gift?!!  It's made from four of the scallop envelopes--cut with the Big Shot!  (have you ordered yours yet?!!)


You could put candy or post it notes, or bath salts, or just about any little gift you can think of!!!  Leave me a comment with your ideas!!

I used the Ski Slope Designer Paper, The large and small Felt Flurries, and the Sweet Sampler Stamp Set for this box.  Oh--and of course, the Snow Flurries Stamp set!!  That one is definitely one of my favorite sets right now!!

Have a great day!!
