Silver SFYTT

Have you seen Jen's SFYTT!!! Of course you have, I just showed!! I love it. Color blocking is one of my favorites for a few reasons. I love the look of it and you get to use up scraps. I choose to use my brown polka dot scraps.
I've been on a bit of a holiday card kick. I'm still not sure how many I'm going to need and I hate to wait until the last minute. Since this is my first christmas making cards I want to be prepared!! I'm so not a procrastinator and I hate throwing cards together at the last minute. I skimp on the details when I'm in a hurry and for me the details is what really makes a card. The Verve challenge must seriously be on my brain because I used wet and dry embossing on this card. I really love this tree from Snow Swirled embossed in silver. I first tried it for my Holiday Card Class Kit. I cased the idea from Patti Chesky's card seen {HERE}. I loved this layout and the shimmer on the card.
I used my snowflake cuttlebug folder to emboss the Real Red layers. The tedious part was cutting out the two snowflake but I'm pleased with the results. I added some brads because they are my new addiction and voila. One more christmas card done!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
