Good morning! For today's Blog Hop I created a fun Christmas card with non-traditional Christmas colors.

I used designer paper from My Mind's Eye, Spellbinders™ die templates and Prima pearls and rhinestones with a touch of glitter.

I started by creating all of my diecut using Spellbinders™ die templates, S4-290 Labels Fourteen die #5, S4-286 2010 Snowflake Pendants center piece, S4-287 Fanciful Holiday. Then I used Distress Inks from Ranger to ink the edges on the paper and diecuts as shown in the photo above.

Here is a close up of the snowflake. I added some glitter and a rhinestone to the center. I also used a 3D Foam Square from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™ to pop up the center on the snowflake.

Here is a close up of the reindeer, Christmas tree and swirly snow. I added a mix of pearls and rhinestones to the tree, glitter for the snow and a cute little pink bow for the reindeer.
