Winter Frost Christmas

I usually go for the usual red and green for my Christmas cards, but I might have to break the tradition this year.  I really love the softness in the colors of the Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper and I have found myself using it a lot more than I thought I would. 

My card base is Smoky Slate Card Stock with a layer of Soft Sky and a piece of the Designer Paper.   The Soft Sky is a little bit lighter than the Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana that are in the paper, but I thought it softened the look even a bit more.   A piece of Soft Sky 1/2" Seam Binding was tied around these layers and then I added my sentiment and foil piece that were cut with two Deco Label Framelits.  You get two different 12 x 12 papers with foil-accent designs, perfect for your layering.

The following were used:
Card Stock:  Smoky Slate #131202, Soft Sky #131203, Whisper White #100730
Designer Series Paper:  Winter Frost #132341
Ink:  Bermuda Bay #131171
Stamp Set: Christmas Messages n#131790 w or #131793 c
Ribbon:  Soft Sky 1/2" Seam Binding #131210
Tools:  Big Shot #113439, Deco Label Framelits #130102
