Snowflakes seem to be the theme

This year everywhere i look all i see are snowflakes and i guess that has rubbed off on me.  Most of the decorations i have bought are snowflakes or have snowflakes on them.  So keeping with my theme of snowflakes i even made my Christmas cards this year to have snowflakes.
The beautiful, serene, gentle feeling that snowflakes bring helps put the holiday into perspective for me.

I came across these scallop cards at Michael's, 8 of them for $1.50, so i bought three packs.  Not enough but i made due.  I then used silver metallic card stock and red card stock.  I cut the circles out using the big shot and then the shimmery white circle was cut using the big shot as well.  I then embossed the shimmery white piece with a snowflake embossing folder.  As for the snowflakes they varied.  The blue and silver were stickers, then shinny fabric snowflakes and a couple cut from a memory box die and glittered icicle card stock.  I used red or silver jewels around the scallop and the red ones have a jeweled flower and the silver ones have a rhinestone snowflake.


I love reading all the wonderful message you all leave.
