Softly falling...

Good Sunday morning to you. Chicago land had our first snow fall of the season yesterday. It actually started Friday night and snowed all through the night and all day Saturday. I live south of the city so we did not get as much accumulation as those north of me. I got around 5-6". I love the first snow fall - especially when it is over the weekend and I don't have to drive in it!

Speaking of snow fall, my first Christmas card of the season I made using Stampin Up's embossing folder Softly Falling.  This is so beautiful and so many different ways you can use it.

I took a piece of white cardstock and embossed it with the Softly Falling folder. I punched out some stars using Stampin Up's silver glitter paper and adhered them to the white cardstock around that beautiful poinsettia flower I made. Can you believe this flower was made with one punch? It's called the Festive Flower Builder punch. Love it! I'm going to try it next using vellum. I sprinkled fine silver glitter around the edges of the leaves.

I die cut the word peace using the same silver glitter paper, tied some red and white twine around the white cardstock and topped the bow off with a button. I then adhered this to a red 4 x 5.5 card base.

Now that I am finally in the mood to create, I think I'm going back to the craft table to see what else I can make with all my new goodies!
Enjoy the week ahead~
