Less than one week to go....

Christmas is coming closer still.  Wow less than a week away.  Where has all the time gone?  Where has the year gone?  I thought I would share one of my Christmas cards with you all.  I used the Cricut machine to cut the snowflake circle.  Then I placed packing tape on the backside of the snowflake and sprinkled red glitter on it.  It sure made the snowflake shine!  Next, I cut out cardboard circle rings 1/4" thick.(I cut some out using 2 different sized nestabilites and for others I used the Martha Steward circle cutter.)  I applied green glitter to these circle rings and used pop dots on the rings.  There  is a 5" piece of red cardstock under the snowflake card and I used an EK success border cutter to cut out my saying on the front of the card, and popped it up with pop dots.  I took the whole card front and glued it on a sparkly sheet of ivory white paper that I had folded in half.  I really like this card.  On the inside I found a verse about friends that ws in the shape of a Christmas tree.  I printed that out on a stationary sheet bordered with poinsettias. I then tied ribbon in the middle to hold the inside and outside together.    Below is a picture of the outside of the card and the inside.  Merry Christmas to all!
