Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas! : Festive Friday!

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas! : Festive Friday!


I was very busy last night and today hosting my Mom's
70th birthday party in Suquamish.
It went so wonderfully!
[though lots of work!]

Well, I have a quick card this evening before I drop!

I adore the Festive Friday Blog, no secret here.
I have to play!  
A TWO week inspiration challenge, what is NOT to love?
JOIN IN!
 You will be amazed that you will make truly one of a kind
cards for your family and friends.
Before you know it you will be perusing through your Christmas Card stack, hand selecting each 
"just perfect"
 card to the special person that your are gifting it to, 
and smiling the entire time!

I have this neat Balzer Designs star stencil I have been wanting
 to do a Christmas "frosted" card with.
I wanted the feel of FROST, just like when Conrad and I "frost" the windows with snowflakes.
I embossed the edges a little haphazardly to achieve this effect.
Using white Colorbox Ink I sponged the inside of the stencil with more pressure, 
easing up to the edges.

I hope this reminds you of decorated windows for the Holidays!
Enjoy!
Supplies: 
Ali Edwards Sentiment
Balzer Designs Bits Mask Script Star ($4.00)
Versamagic Dazzle Frost Embossing Ink
Colorbox White Ink
Recollections Snow Embossing powder
