Well look at that we are halfway there! Are you still here?? Can you believe Christmas is only 6 weeks away? I have not even thought about Christmas shopping so I think I had better start soon.
I saw a card like this on Youtube and thought "I think I could make something a bit like that." It was made by Amy Celona, and you know what I did manage to recreate it in my own way! Youtube is a great resource for getting ideas for Stampin' Up! stamp sets - just type in the name of the set or style of card and up come lots of videos.
I have been desperately waiting for this stamp set to come here to Australia since it was released in the USA. I love its huge tree and cute little snow covered lodge. Ok, so we don't get snow here at Christmas but it is lovely just the same.This card is a sidestep (fancy fold) card. My stamp club girls were wanting to make a few fancy fold cards and this one came to mind immediately. I hope they like their versions of it as much as I did. It is so much prettier in real life.
Hope you like bling because this card really sparkles and shines! There are quite a few different elements here. I used the silver glimmer paper for the snowy ground cover & snowflake, Gumball Green for the ribbon and leaves of the branch. It is so much prettier in real life as the camera just doesn't pick up all those sparkles.
