In this close-up shot you can see that I used Lovely as a Tree in the background and also the snowflakes from Festive Favourites and Irridescent Ice embossing powder to add a bit of "snow" glitter.
The houses were stamped in Basic Gray on white paper and then I coloured them in with Basic Gray ink and an aqua pen. I cut the strip out and added it to the Basic Gray card stock base. The circle greeting comes from Circle of Friendship.
I was going to add some ribbon but it took away from the "peacefulness" of the card. So I've left it this way. I hope the ladies like it.
This second card uses the Classic Stars wheel and is slight CASE from something I saw on SCS (SplitCoastStampers).
I used Real Red for the card base and Ballet Blue for the accent paper strip and also the ink for the stars. I then used both Star punches from Stampin' Up! to make an embellishment. CONGRATULATIONS comes from Hugs & Wishes and is embossed in White Detail embossing powder.
Tip: I added the ribbon and then tied a smaller piece on to make the knot. Much easier to do than tying a knot on a piece of ribbon your trying to glue down!
I have a ton of wheels and like using them - on the spool or not - so I can't wait to see what samples I'll get back in the swap!
