simply snowflakes !!

stamps: lili of the valley Christmas icon (set 36), Christmas circular sentiments (set 5)
inks: tim holtz distress ink pads (blue tones) & archival ick pad (jet black)
punches: Martha stewart snowflake punch, 1 3/4 inch circle punch from stampin up!
other: white ribbon, craftwork cards digi cardstock,  stickles

I thought I'd quickly just share this cute 4x4 Christmas card with you today. it makes the most of the sentiment, I  think its a nice alternative to a picture (and means if you are making in batches you don't need loads of different colours out for the central image, as this sticks to a limited colour palette.) a bit of glitter on some punched snowflakes draws your attention to the aperture, and gives it that extra Christmassy feel. you could take the same idea and change colour and swap the snowflakes to flowers, butterflies (or anything else you can think of) for a pretty and simple card for a birthday, thank you or any other occasion !!
