A “Blue” Christmas

Posted on

So, I am not a huge fan of all red and green for Christmas as I think I have mentioned before. I like lots whites and blues with some traditional colors thrown in. Dark blue has to be my all time favorite color next to brown. It is a very bold and vibrant color and was the inspiration for this card.

As I was browsing through the Holiday Mini Catalog a few weeks ago I came across the Peekaboo Frames Bigz L Die. What an different and versatile die it is. You can make all different size window frames in 5 different shapes. They are great for stamping and image on the front and a little message inside. I used the Stampin’ Up! Merry Winter Clear set for the cute little snowman on the front of the top note window and the phrase on the inside inked in Night of Navy Classic Stampin’ Ink. I also brushed the window agains the stamp pad to give it a little separation from the Snow Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I like the little swirls too, they make it look a like a little wind swept snow is blowing around. The Merry Christmas is from the Delightful Dozen Clear Mount Stamp set. I love the card and hope you do too!
