Let me share some photos of today’s card…
I created this card with the limited edition stamp set, SNOW IS GLISTENING. It’s only available during the month of November. This stamp set is awesome and makes such beautiful handmade cards!
Notice that little metal snowflake in the center? This is a Snowflake Trinket and what I love about this little piece is that it’s actually very lightweight so it won’t add a lot of bulk or weight to your card when you mail it.
That Mother of Pearl technique is so pretty!
- Gray Granite – 5 ½” x 8 ½”, score and fold at 4 ½”
- Night of Navy – 4 ¼” x 5 ¼”, tear off the bottom
- Glossy Cardstock – 3 ½” x 5″
Here are the supplies I used to create the card. Remember to die cut your snowflakes from the layer of Night of Navy before you adhere it together. Save cardstock!
I have shared with you about this special LIMITED EDITION stamp set from Stampin’ Up called SNOW IS GLISTENING. I think you are going to LOVE this stamp set for your Christmas cards because it is so versatile!

Thanksgiving came early this year! WOW! It really snuck up on me. Today I will spend my day packing up our Thanksgiving feast as we get ready to head to a cabin in the woods. It’s become a tradition around here to rent a nice little cabin in Broken Bow, Oklahoma. I love this little resort town.
I think what I love best about this getaway is the fact there are no distractions. The four of us can hang out, play cards, binge watch something (not sure what that will be this year), and just have some fun. When we’re at home, it seems like we have so many things that pull our focus from each other so this is a great way to reconnect.
If you ask my girls, they will say the best part of this trip is the hot tub. My favorite part of this trip is that I show up to an empty refrigerator. For those of you who struggle to get all your Thanksgiving food in the fridge, you know exactly why I am excited about an empty refrigerator. Everything fits and I’m not fighting pickle jars and mystery storage containers.
So, the grocery shopping is done, a lot of what we need is packed, the truck is gassed up. Time to head out for the 4 hour drive. Oh, the road trip snack bag is ready too. You can’t take a road trip without the snack bag. That’s the best part of any road trip!
Don’t forget to set your scales back 10 pounds this week! Happy Thanksgiving to all my USA friends! I hope your celebration is a huge blessing! We do have a lot of to be thankful for.
Please tell me you loved this technique. It is SO pretty in person and I don’t know how well it showed up in photos or on the video but guys, I know this technique is going to blow you away when you make it yourself. Give it a try! You will love the look, I promise!
Any color you choose will be stunning and be sure to mix up the shimmer paint color you use as well. Just think of that copper on a darker color. It will be so pretty!
Have fun creating my friends. See you all here on Friday for a great Christmas gift idea. It’s FLASHBACK FRIDAY! Yay!
