Simple Holiday Wishes

I need A LOT of Christmas cards and I don't really think I am going to get them done, acutally I know I'm not going to get them done, but I may just have a chance with a super simple, yet pretty cards like this.

I totally CASED this idea from Angie's Chic N Scratch blog. She has super fun, great ideas and a really fantastic blog so I chose this one just because it would be so simple to mass produce. It would be even better on shimmery white cs, but I don't have any left, so CTMH White Daisy will have to do the trick. I used SU Pacific Point ink and cs, my SU scallop circle punch, the snowflake stamp is from SU So Many Scallops (which fits perfectly in the scallop punch, as if you didn't know that already though:-)),the sentiment is from CTMH Festive Thoughts, added a rhinestone to the center of the snowflake and some silver cord from SU. So I guess I didn't copy Angie's verbatim, but the basic idea I sure did and I love how it turned out...thanks Angie for a great super simple, fast but pretty card!! Go on over and check out her site and Stampin Academy videos too!!

Thanks for visiting me today...only 4 more sleeps for me until we go to Vegas!!!


*****ETA...I am so full of wonderful friend Veronica emailed to ask how I puched out the centre circle piece and that's when I looked back at the card and I realized that although my initial idea was to use the SU Scallop punch, it didn't work because I used the stamp that would need to be punched out with it instead...anyway, I used my scallop circle and circle nesties to punch these out:-) Sorry for any confusion*****
