Christmas card Sunday!

Hello!  Time for another Christmas card!  This makes three for me so far this year!  Wooo hoooo!!  My big, shiny plan is to make one a week every week so that when December rolls around I will have a nice pile of handmade beauties ready for the mailing!  Today felt a red card day so I went with it!  Here is my number 3 card:

The sun is shining and it is beautiful out today so I had to make my own snow!

I am just nutty about this silver glimmer paper!  It manages to dress up any project I put it on!
{{The only thing that might make this wonderful paper more perfect and beautiful is if it were pink! LOL}} 

This awesome tree is from the classic set Lovely As a Tree.  I used markers to stamp to color it and added some white snow with a gel pen and then went over it with Dazzling Details for just a little bit more shimmer and pop.

View from the side shows off the embossed background.

Stamps: Lovely As a Tree and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Real Red, Very Vanilla and Silver Glimmer paper
Ink: Real Red, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip and White Gel pen
Punches and Dies: Northern Flurry (retired), Word Window, Modern Label and Square Lattice EF
Extras: Dazzling Details and Dimensionals

I would love it if you played along with me!  I plan to post a new Christmas card every Sunday!  Leave me a comment with a link to your card!

Have a wonderful weekend!  I will be back soonest with more to share!

That is such a great stamp! I really like the sentiment and the punches you used on it. Great goal and card.

I love the pine tree image with the red and white color combo-so Christmassy!!

About the pink glimmer paper, you do know you can turn the silver to pink, right? Inspiration for your next card?!
