I'm dreaming...

...of a white Christmas! Lalalala! OH! You aren't here to hear me sing, so sorry! No no! Don't go away, I have GINA K DESIGNS PREVIEW TODAY!! WOOT!

Today is day 2 of the of this month's release for Gina K Designs. Wasn't yesterday's awesome! If you missed them, Gina has them alll linked on her blog, down below today's post! And dont forget to comment on Gina's Blog today and yesterday for a chance to win some awesome blog candy...free stamps!!

Today, I have a card that I have done using Asela Hopkin's new set, "Christmas Blessings"....


I love traditional colors for Christmas, but I also love non-traditional too! I change my color theme for Christmas every year, and one year I did the colors in this light blue tone and silver. That is what inspired this card. I love how sparkly this looks in real life. I used silver embossing powder on the edges of the poinsettia's and then colored them in with my copic markers. Added a few silver rhinestones to the middle after cutting out and popped them up on the card. For the sentiment area, I used my circle nesties to cut that out, and also the little 'frame' around the circle was done with the nesties too. I then used a piece of vellum, stamped the sentiment and embossed it also, then ran top edge, and then the bottom edge through my CB machine with the swiss dots folder. See that gorgeous, shiny, oh so silky to touch ribbon? Gina K is going to be carrying that in her store also!! If you are a regular visitor to my blog, you know me and my bow issues...well for some reason, this ribbon was MUCH easier to tie! (I think it has to do how smooth and silky it is, but not TOO silky to where it slides everywhere, seriously!) I even LIKE my bow on this card! The scallop corner punch that I used is also available from Gina K Desings

Ok, ready for some more awesome previews from the rest of the team?? I have them linked below for you, but you can also find them on my side bar too.
