Season's Greetings

Stamps: Swirl background, Sentiment, Lady and snowman from Candy Kisses half-plate

Rogue Redhead Designs Candy Kisses stamp plate
Stampin' Up Pixie Pink, Summer Sun and Whisper White cardstocks
Blue textured cardstock unknown
Stampin' Up Pixie Pink, Summer Sun, Basic Black and Ballet Blue markers
Stampin' Up Pixie Pink and Basic Black ink pads
Stampin' Up pewter hodgepodge hardware and ribbon
Stampin' Up Curly Label punch
Adhesive and pop dots

This card has a special window for this special couple.  I stamped the swirl background all over the front of the card and cut out a window to the left. I cut a piece of summer sun cardstock and pixie pink, stamping the swirl background on the pink and sentiment on the yellow, and rounded all the corners. I punched out the curly label in the blue and then added all of the hardware. I stamped pieces of the lady and snowman image on 3 1" pieces of pixie pink, poked brads through the middle and popped up along the bottom. As a sneak peak of the Fabulous image inside the window. I finished by coloring the lady and snowman image on white cardstock, centered the image in the window and adhered the card closed except for the window :)
