Something New @ Christmas Card Challenges

Mornings all :) 
It is time again for a new challenge at 

This week the challenge is ... 
Use Something New

Too easy! I pulled out some of my new stash from Stampin' Up! that includes my new brads and glitter embossing powders!  

 The front of the card slides in nicely behind the distressed edge on the bottom. 

Being in the Stampin' Up! mood I also used their Swirl Christmas Tree, snowflakes and sentiment set.  The ribbon I pulled from my stash and mixed with the crochet trim that were off-cuts and left overs from a previous project and the inside piece has been punched with an EX Success swirl border punch.  The cardstock I found in my scraps and on the front I have stamped the snowflakes and then covered them with clear embossing powder.  And to add a little extra magic to the adorable snow swirl tree I added some mini pearls.   

As always the girls and I would love if you played along with us at
The challenge theme is optional, the only real rule is you must create a new Christmas Holiday, winter or Hanukkah card / creation.

I look forward to seeing you there!
