Celebrate In Blue and Silver

When I was creating cards for a Clean and Simple (CAS) challenge on splitcoastsampers, I decided to pull out my neglected brushed silver card stock. Love this stuff! Lots of shimmer with zero effort! I made 2 very similar cards...each use the silver, white organza ribbon, not quite navy ink, and Fabulous Phrases stamp set.


In the first card, I used the Circles Big Shot die to cut out the large circle from Candy Cane Christmas dsp, found in the Holiday Mini. Serene Snowflakes and some rhinestones sitting on a large scallop circle add all the detail I needed.

The second card uses the Tags til Christmas stamp set for the ornament, and the absolutely-gotta-have-itornament punch. Of course, some bling too!
Quick...Clean...Simple...Wow!
