 Another Christmas card to share today which hopefully has reached its destination although it was well into teatime yesterday before  my post arrived so the postal delivery people are obviously being kept pretty busy this year.  I remember a time when each year there was plenty of seasonal work for students who used to join the 'posties' in the run up so that the mail all got through in time and of course in those days there were also more deliveries each day rather than just the one we get now. There were even deliveries on the Sunday prior to Christmas day then - Guess I'm showing my age here 😉.  

For this card I made up the background using two pieces of designer paper, the bottom one being die cut and laid over the 'sky' area.  The large word was die cut using white card and also a few miscellaneous snowflakes were cut to scatter around.  The little iridescent stars in the centre of the snowflakes look pink here but they look different depending which angle you view them on the actual card. The whole design was backed with a scalloped square of pretty silver card

Sky Paper - left over piece of Artylicious Seasons Greetings printed paper
Darker Blue Paper - from Stampin' Up Trimming the Town collection
Curved Die - from Curvy die set Stampin' Up
Snowflake Word - Sheena Douglass die Creative Expressions
Small Snowflakes - die cut from various die sets
Iridescent Stars - Stampin' Up
