Pals December Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals December 2017 Blog Hop featuring “All that Sparkles and Shines”. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
For this card I used the Year of Cheer Design Series Paper and the Star of Light Stamp Set with the coordinating Framelits.  I love how the mix of silver and gold make it so festive!  It reminds me of that old song, you know the one, from Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer :)  I can hear Burl Ives voice singing "silver and gold decorations on every Christmas tree" in my head as I am typing this
I heat embossed the sentiment and cut it out using the layering ovals dies.  The silver snowflake comes from the foil snowflake pack in the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog.  Make sure to get all of your favorite items from the Holiday catalog before they retire on December 31, 2017.

Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today.  Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on January 10, 2018. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Don’t forget to leave us a comment. We really like that.

  2. I love how you combined the Snowflake and Star, and topped it with a pearl. Just perfect!

  3. Gorgeous card, Jennifer. The gold star of light die cut works perfectly with the silver foiled snowflake!
