The Paper Cut is an inspiration for Christmas~ I see Santa!

In the hush of winter night, when the ice crystals form a mist around the full moon, I could swear that the shape of St. Nick and his reindeer is streaking across the sky.  When I saw this very special metallic card stock from The Paper Cut called Lapis, I just knew I had to make a card for the midnight hour.  The shimmer and sparkle from this gorgeous  mat cardstock is hard to catch in the photo but it is stunning.  I sponged my interpretation of ice crystals onto the Darcie embossing folder with a white Stampabilities pigment pad. I used gold Stickles for the stars and red for Rudolph's nose. Then added a fitting inside liner for the snowy weather.  I'm sure you are looking for a unique finish for those Christmas cards~be sure to check out this fantastic site.  It's a great place for pre-scored shape card blanks of all varieties, card/lay-out accessories and awesome cardstocks in many varieties.

    1. awwww I'm so glad you liked it! I reread my post and it sounds like I daubed the folder-I actually sponged the raised image after I ran it through! Loved this folder-Thanks Mel!
