Keep it Simple Sister - Sparkling Holiday Card

I love a good, easy project. Especially in the hectic winter months! So when American Crafts posted their weekly challenge for quick & easy Christmas cards last week, I was thrilled. Perfect inspiration for the few minutes I had available for mid-week creating.


After digging through my scrap box, I came across a sheet of white American Crafts cardstock that my daughter had run through my Texture Boutique several times, with several different embossing folders. I loved the finished product - kind of a random, shabby chic type of feel. Especially after a dusting of iridescent powder to give it an extra shine. I also had a scrap of American Crafts Letterbox patterned paper (in Sir), which also got a dusting of the iridescent powder. It coordinated perfectly with my leftover stash of the striped grosgrain and adorable Dear Lizzy Christmas rub-ons (both, coincidentally, American Crafts, from the June and December Lucky Girl Crafts kits). Woohoo! Who doesn't love when that happens, right?! A little bling just enhanced the rub-on phrase.

Thanks for popping by! Oh - and remember to take part in the Frosted Designs Holiday Blog Hop, if you haven't already. You've got until noon central standard time Thursday (Dec. 9) to enter for a chance to win one of the many prizes my DT sisters are giving away! (See my post below.) Good luck!
