As I was assembling goody bags with the help of my assistant last Christmas, I found myself thinking that they would make good cards, so I made a few extra tags which I have been using thoughout the year.
My latest effort was inspired by this Try Stamping on Tuesday sketch:
The snowflake was cut and embossed and the hexagon cut using Spellbinders Shapeabilities. The swirling snowflakes and sentiment are from a long retired but still one of my favorite stamp sets, Snow Flurries, by Close to My Heart. I embossed the sentiment to give it more pop and to balance the white in the rest of the card. Of course I had to embellish with sparkles because y'all know how much I like sparkles, particularly the itty bitty ones.
Thank you for stopping by! Until next time, Hansi
