The clean, crisp details of the Tisdale Snowflake Collage create a quick, contemporary card that's easy to mass-produce.  A quick Silvery Shimmer-stamped greeting and some sparkly sequins from Birch Press Design are all you need to finish it off.

Hello, Jean Okimoto here - and yes it's just 52 days until Christmas.  Let's create a simple card that works for anyone on your list.  Try it in pale aqua, bright teal or chartreuse too!

Cut bright red cardstock with the  3.5"  x 4.75" Rectangle Basics die.  Cut it with the beautiful Tisdale Snowflake Collage - it's a perfect fit!  Save the delicate snowflake from the top left corner.

Stamp the greeting - from the Open Studio Merry Christmas Sentiments Clear Stamp Set - with Silvery Shimmer Delicata.  Dry the ink, then diecut the greeting with the 1" x 2.25" Rectangle Basics die.  

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded 5.5" square card of Ultra-Smooth White Cardstock from Impress.  It's a beautiful winter-white that's perfect for stamping.

Add a trio of pretty sequins from the Birch Press Design Fairy Sparkle set.  View - and fall in love with - the entire collection of Birch Press Design Sequins.
