Mica Flakes Christmas

Good Sunday Morning everyone!  I sure have a busy day ahead of me today with church and then my DGD is in a cheering competition today!  Sure wish they would not do these on a Sunday.  But that is the way it is.

I was so excited with the finished product of this card.  When I first saw the stamping 411 sketch, I was trying to decide what stamp set to use and then while going through all of them this one, plant hope, caught my eye and it is not even a Christmas Stamp.  But that is OK because you can make one out of it as I did and there are others you can do the same with.  When stamping there are times you just have to be creative.  Like when I first saw this Christmas designer paper, frostwood lodge, I was unsure of it, but now I am loving it.  I have made regular cards with it and have discovered the same about it, you just have to look beyond what it is for and see the whole picture.

Here is a side view of the card!

And a close up of the mica flakes!  Loving those mica flakes!

How cool is that!

The words "mica flakes" really got my attention! I have a box of that stuff and still not sure what to do with it or how to glue it on LOL. Gorgeous card and clever idea with the trees. Noice!
