Fancy Friday Blog Hop – My Christmas Card

Welcome to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop…a super fun hop with my Fancy friends…who also happen to be past or current Stampin’ Up! Artisans!  On the last Friday of each month we hop with a new challenge…and this month the challenge is to share our own Christmas card…so let’s check out my card.



Now…I have a bit of a confession to make.  This isn’t actually our Christmas card.  We’ve had what seems like a thousand photos taken lately…so we’ve decided to go with photo cards this year.  But…I like to keep a stack of holiday thank you cards on hand to send out for party invitations or sweet, unexpected gifts…and this IS that card…the holiday thank you.  So I think it counts.


I also think there’s so much to love about this card!  First…I adore how the silver and copper play together so nicely!  I never thought about pairing them…and I think it just works.  Second…I couldn’t love the Silver Foil Edged Cards and Envelopes more!  I grabbed them when they were first released with the Holiday Catalog…and I almost forgot about them.  I’m so glad I remembered them.  They are gorgeous…and the foil edge is an effortless way to add amazing impact.  Then…I couldn’t resist using the Snowfall Thinlits again.  I know I’m repeating myself…but I have to say it again…these snowflake dies are AMAZING!  They’re only available until November 30th…and if you haven’t nabbed them for yourself stop what you’re doing and order them.  You’ll be so happy you did!  Finally…I love that all the shiny, “fancy” elements are balanced with a bit of plain old Pool Party cardstock and white baker’s twine.  It’s like elegant and organic all rolled up into one…and that’s just the way I like it!



Thank you so much for stopping by for the Fancy Friday Blog Hop! I hope you’ll be inspired to your own Christmas card…and I’d LOVE to see it! So…post it, using #fancyfridaybloghop when you share it…and let me or one of my Fancy friends know!
