Holiday Muse

Here's my card for this week's Muse challenge.  I was inspired by Marion's clean and simple layout. Instead of using florals, I went with flakes!

Happy Holidays card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Clear and Simple Stamps
I die cut a pair of snowflakes from silver glitter paper, then used foam tape to adhere them to a red card base.  Each flake has a clear crystal at the center for even more sparkle.  I stamped the "happy holidays" sentiment from the Clear and Simple Stamps All Wrapped Up stamp set beneath the flakes in black ink.  Quick, clean and simple, but it makes an impact, doesn't it?

Materials Used:
All Wrapped Up stamp set, Dare to Be a Diva Red cardstock, Flurries dies (Clear and Simple Stamps); Memento Tuxedo Black markers (Tsukineko); silver glitter cardstock, clear crystals (Michaels); foam tape


  1. Love these flakes - they look very masculine and almost gear-like! Love the sparkle against the red - thanks for joining us at Muse this week!

  2. Great interpretation and I love the sparkle against the red, fab Christmas card!
