Holiday Peace

Good Morning everyone :)
It has been almost a week and I'm back and ready to share my newest card. I almost didn't have energy to keep up with everything that was going on this week including stamping...too much going on. I'll get back to that another time :)
Now this card was done with different sets and I promised myself to incorporate only 1 embelly...not including ribbon :) I have to have ribbon.lol...that is just a given. I wanted something simple but elegant looking...I think for Christmas cards you need to be careful with how much you put into the card, especially if you plan on mailing some out. Threadart is where I buy my glass rhinestones with all of the other colors you can't go wrong :) it is in fact the perfect embelly that is nice and small that will give cards that small feature with a big (Unff).
I did actually weighed this card and sized it through the mailing slot device thingy...lol...I have at home for shipping purposes and it is in fact thin and light enough to pass through regular letter mail with a no extra postage :) I'm quite happy with that fact...it gives me the incentive to make more because it won't cost more...I will be posting more cards just like this so I hope you stop by and check it out.
Her is the inside of the card with a snowflake in the corner...just enough to complete it. I have to admit I wasn't one to really do the insides of the card I make but I love doing it now...it just doesn't seem complete without a pretty inside

Stamps: "SU" Scandinavian Christmas, To You and Yours, Rubbernecker Trees
Paper: Unknown DP, Bazzill CS, "SU" Old Olive and WW.
Ink: "SU" Close to Cocoa
