Christmas Blog Hop! Week Two!

Did you check out all the exciting projects last week during Shirley's Christmas Blog Hop?   I know I did and WOW!  Such amazingly talented ladies out there.  I am so blessed to be included in the group! You can to just make a Christmas item 80% Stampin' Up!  and join our hop!
You can check out Shirley's blog here.

I have been busy making tags and cards and getting ready for the holiday season.  And here is what I came up with this week.

 I started with a Tempting Turquoise Card Base, and I ran it through the Big Shot with the Scallop Circle Die .Next I repeated the process with WW and Vellum Card Stock.   I used Whisper White Ink and White embossing powder mixed with Dazzling Diamons to heat emboss the snow flakes on the Vellum.  You have to be careful to move your heat gun around a lot when doing this on Vellum as you can easily burn the Vellum.  
Next I Used the outer edge of my WW scallop circle ( the part that is left over from cutting the scallop)  to sandwich the Vellum in between it and the Card front to create the snowy window.  I used t
I added a saying from Snow Swirled ( and the snowflakes)   and punched it out with the decorative label punch and repeated in Real Red to add dimension.  I sponged the edges of the card stock with Crumb Cake.  Added some bling and some Dazzling details to the center of the snowflakes for even more Sparkle!
I tied a mini jingle bell to the center of the Real Red Bow with linen thread.
On to the inside!   I used the small snowflake from Snow Swirled to add texture around the WW scallop.  I used crumb cake to sponge the edges of the WW scallop and used the saying from Snow Swirled .
I really liked this card and can see a few people receiving it for Christmas!

Now its your turn.
