Silent Night

I {heart} this card that I made for today's OCC Challenge which is create a winter themed card featuring snow or snowflakes somewhere on your project. In doing this challenge, my 2009 Christmas card emerged! It is December 19th, and I have not yet made my cards. I was going to make the embossed Santa card from my previous post, but then I though about the layers and the mailing issues with envelopes extra postage etc., so I decided against it. I wanted a simple card that was on the flat side. Soooooooooooo I had gotten this wonderful stamp from Memory Box at my LSS before Thanksgiving, and I saw THIS sample on the Memory Box website. It was so gorgeous. I CASE'd it, changing the shape of the card, mounted it on black and embossed the background layer with a snowflake EF. I also bought a bunch of twinkling H20's from Lumin Art that I received in the mail this week. I tried them and I LOVE them. So today, I will work on my cards. We are having our first snowfall of any consequence here in central New Jersey. The weather outside is frightful, but I am delighted!!!! Let it snow!!!!!

Here is the recipe:
Stamps - Memory Box~ Tree Silhouette and All is Calm/Bright.
Paper - Papertray Ink white cardstock, SU watercolor paper, SU Shimmery White, Basic Black.
Ink - Versafine Onyx Black.
Accessories - Aqua Painter, Cuttlebug and Snowflake EF, Dimensionals.
