This card is my first using the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Oh My !!  This paper is gorgeous.  The picture of my card, and the photos in the catalog, do not do it justice.  It is awesome !

Labels to Love, 144967

My plan was to showcase the beautiful DSP and the oversized banner was what I chose.  Because of the gold, I could not decide on a base color.  By going with the white, it keeps it clean, but I needed something to highlight the gold.  So I decided to add the little bit of black.

I have been trying to use these beautiful Foil Snowflakes since I got them before the catalog even went live.  And all of a sudden there it was, the perfect spot for the snowflake!  I added the strip of black as if the snowflake is a wreath or a hanging ornament.  I am not sure which idea I prefer.

The sentiment is from the “must have” set Labels To Love.  The set covers several holidays.  This sentiment I believe can be used at any time.  I rarely heat emboss, ( maybe once a year! ).  However with the gold in the DSP and the snowflake, I had to emboss the sentiment.  I am so proud of myself that it turned out well.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I very  much appreciate you looking at my creations and for the nice comments.
