Northern Snowflakes...

Oh, what a beautiful morning...OK, people up north may hate me right now, but this is the time of year that Houston makes up for the long, hot, humid summers! I am definitely going to need to find an excuse to walk across campus today....

This is the last card in the series from my class last Friday night and was probably the favorite (funny how the simplest ones are often the big hits!). The card is simple layers of black, white and a snowflake print from the "Holiday Thyme" Designer Series paper pack from Stampin' Up a few years back (trying to whittle down my stash:)

The bottom edges were clipped with a corner rounder punch which gives it a nice look. The snowflakes are from the Level 1 Hostess set from the new Holiday Mini catalog, called "Northern Hearts" and has some nice patterns for quick cards and gift tags. The snowflakes were inked with Bashful Blue, then over-colored with Basic Black for accents, then stamped on Whisper White and cut out. The top of the inset panel was stamped with a greeting from the "Bright Christmas" set (love these!) and dots were make with a black marker and the mat pack as a guide. A little black dotted organdy ribbon with a double bow and it's done.

This card could be jazzed up with some silver brads, layered snowflakes and machine stitching, but it works the way it is for a quick, pretty card!

Hope you're having a great day- I'm trying to convince the painters that they really can finish my new master bathroom before the onslaught of in-laws for Thanksgiving:)
