Mom's Christmas Cards

I finally finished the Christmas cards I made for my Mom & Dad for Christmas.  I have been trying to make cards for them to send every year.  I think I missed last year...

I used white and blue cardstock.  The stamps are Hero Arts Clings - Snowflake Circle & Stampendous - Cling Snow Brackets.  They are stamped with Sky Blue Color Box Pigment Ink and embossed with Ranger Holographic Embossing Powder.   The extra snowflakes were cut on Cricut, stamped & embossed the same as the snowflake stamps.

I have to thank both my friend Joyce & my sister Susan for putting up with my glitter embossing addiction.  Although Joyce found it easier to vacumn after I left her house because she could see where she had already swept.  Susan will probably never get the glitter out of her kitchen.  I had a little dropping problem.  Needless to say she & the kids all will be glittered for a while.

The card is an easel card from SplitCoastStampers.  I'm really sorry I can't give credit where credit is due, but I can't find the link.  It is an A2 card creased at 4-1/4" & 2-1/8".  I placed small snowflake buttons/embellishments to hold the card open with glue dots.

This is soooo pretty!

I know what you mean about the glitter thing - DD's been working on some glittery cards, and DS is not impressed. He muttered something the other night about finding glitter in places that should NEVER be glittered!
