For the first hop day, I wanted to create a holiday card that could be mass produced if you wanted to do a batch of them. This card is pretty easy to make and would be quick IF you left the pearls off... I won't lie to you... it took me about thirty minutes to put all the those tiny pearls around the frame! They kept flipping around and I spent as much time chasing them as I did glueing them in place! 

These are the dies I used for today's card:




 I embossed white heavy weight paper with the Snowflake Background. The two largest Rectangle Frames are nested together and popped up using foam tape for dimension. I used a glue pen to add the delicate Season's Greetings die cut.

On the inside liner, I added the largest Rectangle Frame and a few gold snowflakes. You can see the little circle embossed detail on the frame... those little circles just begged for a pearl or jewel!

Here are the Blog Hop links again for you!
Have fun Hopping!

  4. I made it to the part where your pearls staged a mutiny and I shot a little coffee out my nose. I HATE WHEN THOSE &*&% PEARLS/RHINESTONES DO THAT!!! HAHAHAHA I agree that this is great for mass producing sans pearls...but you're the only person I know who can bring a 'simple' card to the table that has as much WOW factor as the layers you're known for? DANG, this is beautiful! Sidenote: You won. I purchased my perfect layer rulers. And you're right. I have NO idea how I lived without them as long as I did!!! TY for that tip!!!
