Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I was inspired for the design on this card by a card I saw on Esty by Richard Thomas.  He used Gold foil and the Diamonds embossing folder.  When I saw it I immediately though of our Balmy Blue Glitter paper and redid it using a few different items.  I used the “Wrapped In Christmas” and “Christmas Mean More” Stamp sets all by Stampin UP®.  Instead of the Diamonds Embossing Folder I used the “Winter Snow” embossing folder.  Add in the “Pine Woods Dies” and your ready! I also used the Balmy Blue Stampin Blends and colored in the Snowflake Splendor Ribbon.  

I hope you like this version of the card!  Please don’t forget to leave me a comment below!  Also please follow me by adding your email to the right so that you will be notified each time I post a new card on my blog!
