As promised, I'm now posting the fourth project from my November 2009 Stamp Club meeting.

This simple, yet elegant, Christmas card features the Snow Swirled stamp set, one of my favorites. In addition to the images you see here, the set also includes several snowflakes of different sizes and a "Season's Greetings" sentiment.
It is easy to switch up the card design a bit by interchanging some of the images or the sentiments. (For exmaple, one of my Club members last night chose to use the "Season's Greeting" on the card front, and save herself the need to write too much inside by using the longer sentiment there. No doubt a wise tactic!)

The color combination is Mellow Moss (from the Soft Subtles color family) and Elegant Eggplant (Rich Regals).

Inks used here include Elegant Eggplant and Encore Silver. We used the distressing tool to rough up the edges of the Whisper White card stock. The ribbon is SU!'s 1/4" grosgrain in Mellow Moss. The embellishments are Silver Brads, which we positioned using the Mat Pack and Paper Piercing Tool.

I like using the Sticky Strip to adhere the ribbon. The Mini Glue Dots also work well, especially if you want to tie a knot or bow.
I'd love to know what you think of this project. And, please, let me know if you are interested in getting some materials for yourself or as gifts as we approach the gift-giving season.
