I created two Christmas/winter cards for the blog hop.  The first card used the newly released stamp set, A Whisper on my Nose:
A Whisper on my Nose, Set of 3 - Mounted
The quote was stamped onto white card stock and die cut.  While the die cut remained in the die, I gently applied blue ink around the embossed rim.
Next, several layers of blue glimmer and white card stock were die cut and layered.
The snowflakes from the same stamp set were stamped using the blue ink and mounted as shown.  White seam binding was used to create a double bow and a snowflake adhered to the bow.  Wee gems were added to the snowflake centers.
The second project was the small "Merry Christmas" card.  The sentiment is from the newly released stamp set, Christmas Eve was a Night of Song:
Christmas Eve was a Night of Song, Set of 2
This small card is perfect as a gift card holder.
Of course I had to add the sweet snowflakes to this card, too!
