Blue & White Christmas

One of my favorite color combinations at Christmas time is blue and white.  To create this card I started with a blue card base. Using my Sizzix machine I embossed a piece of white card stock with a dot embossing folder and a smaller piece of white card stock using a snowflake embossing folder.  I added the dot embossed piece to the card base. I backed the snowflake embossed piece with blue card stock and added it to the center of the card. I stamped the sentiment on white card stock and punched it out using the real estate sign punch from EK Success.   I colored the stars using Spectrum Noir pens and backed the sentiment in blue card stock. I added the sentiment to the center on the snowflake embossed piece.  I punched a snowflake from white card stock using a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and a smaller snowflake from blue card stock using a Martha Stewart snowflake corner punch.  I layered the snowflakes and added them to the bottom corner of the sentiment added a pearl to the center.  I added crystal stickles to the snowflakes and to the stars on the image.
