Warm Wishes - Guest Designer at Crop Stop

I'm here with my first project for my guest designer spot at Crop Stop and I thought I create a Christmas/Winter card as the Holidays will be upon us before we know it!



Skater Card:
Crop Stop Products:
Authentique Winter Bundle Paper Stack
Spellbinders Large Labels
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Winter Snowflake Wreath by Cottage Cutz
Darice Leafy Vine Border Embossing Folder
M-Bossibilities Patchwork Folder
Couture Creations Foam Mounting Tape
Copic Sketch Markers
X-Press It Blending Card
Other:
Winter Fun Stamp by Marianne Design
Cuttlebug Mini Snowflake Embossing Folder
Silver Cardstock by American Crafts





I love the Winter Snowflake Wreath by Cottage Cutz and even though it is a thin die as opposed to steel rule it cuts through everything beautifully! I chose to use a cream colored glitter paper to add extra sparkle and all the gorgeous accents on the wreath show up wonderfully. I used the Darice Leafy Vine Border Embossing Folder as a backdrop for the matted image and rather than leave it on the rectangle I cut out around the embossing and using the silver cardstock really makes all the details stand out.
I hope you like this and be sure to drop back next Wednesday for another project.
