Another Christmas Card

I'm on a roll...I finished another Christmas card today!!...I haven't tallied up how many I need total...but I've got a decent start so far!! is my card!:

The products used on this card are a little of this and a little of that!!...I am trying to use up older supplies before buying anything new!!...I have a lot of Christmas papers that are a few years old...time to use them up!!

The card base is from DCWV....and the light green panel is a metallic cover that I embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder...the big snowflake is from Hot off the Press and the little ones, I have no idea!!...LOL!!...I used Fired Brick Distress Ink to stamp the snowflakes...I covered the little snowflakes with glitter glue that I made!!...I used a black Copic marker to go around the edges of all of the snowflakes...for the big snowflake...I tried to use embossing powder on it and for some reason the powder didn't stick very well...maybe I need to re-ink my stamp pad...will have to try, since I didn't get a very good embossed image...I used three different colors of glitter glue on, green and copper...and I used a red gem for the center...think it turned out pretty good...

I used some ribbon that has wire on the edges and pleated it for the side of the card...It is white ribbon but looks pink in the pic....I used a metallic red ribbon and adhered a snowflake ribbon on top of it...I had a time with that snowflake started out white so I used a Copic marker to color it...I tried to use it by itself...but just couldn't get it still isn't perfect, but it looks better than it did!!

I stamped the sentiment on the same green cover as the main panel...again, I don't know who the maker of the greeting stamp is...I did successfully emboss the sentiment...but I used Peeled Paint Distress Ink and clear embossing powder...I also edged the sentiment panel with Peeled Paint Distress Ink...

I added some gems to the top left and lower right sides of the main panel to finish it off!!

Thanks for looking...and have a Great Day!!
