Festive Friday #38

Hello my friends!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! 

It's time again for another challenge at Festive Friday!

Here is the inspiration photo for this time. I found this photo very interesting with so many different ways it could be interpreted!

I knew I wanted to do something with the snowflakes and the black stripes.

This is one of my favorite ways to put together a card. Just cut stuff out and start layering it and playing around with it until I like the way it looks. I started with Diagonal Stripe Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts from Reverse Confetti to build on. Then I added the snowflakes. The small white one is from WPlus9 and the gold ones are from Martha Stewart. I then added the pinecones from Papertrey Ink and the sentiment from Waltzing Mouse.

I hope you will play along with us at Festive Friday!

You can also check out the amazing talent from the other design team members at Festive Friday!

Thank so much for stopping by!

I hope you all have a safe and happy weekend!

  2. Fantastic card, Kay! I like the non traditional colors for your holiday card. The striped background is a wonderful backdrop for those pretty snowflakes topped with the neat pinecones. Your placement of the flakes and cones is spot on. The font on the sentiment is fabulous, too. Altogether a truly wonderful card. You are indeed a master of diecuts and crisp stamping! Have a happy and creative weekend! :)
