Snowflake greetings

Snowflake and holly is a stamp by Penny Black that I have used here before, but in a totally different look.  Still working on my cards.  Lucky that we have the 12 days of Christmas for me to get them all where they should go.  As a little inspiration I am posting this at Joan's Garden just for the fun.  I would like to put a Thank You to her as I was the lucky winner last week.  The card was stamped with Memento black, distressed with Antique Linen and colored with Copic YG 61 an YG 63,  I added holly using the Viva Paper Pen in red to give it that 3D effect.  A snowflake gem from Hero Arts and some red and white twine put some finishing touches on the card,  Green and red paper from the stash finally make this a card.  Very simple, which is good as I am making several.  Hope you enjoy


  1. Oh so simply lovely! Very nice card....

  2. WOW, Mary Jo, I DID enjoy this -- LOVE it, in fact!!! Penny Black's stamps are quite special and this is an awesome one! I need one more card and it needs to be elegant -- too bad this stamp isn't in my arsenal tonight!

  3. Mary Jo, this is so pretty. I love how you used this stamp. Great job!

    Thanks so much for joining us at Joan's Gardens for our Weekly Challenge.


  4. Your card is beautiful. Always love the red and green for Christmas and the black and white gives an extra richness.

  5. Mary Jo the traditional colors and slight distressing give your card a fabulous elegance. Merry Christmas wishes to you!


Thank you for your comments. They are like hot cocoa in winter that makes you feel warm inside.
