My friend Anita posts a new Christmas card design on her blog every Monday, but, despite my best intentions, I can't keep up with the challenge!  I know it's Tuesday, and Anita is encouraging Making Merry Mondays, but I thought I'd share a card with you anyway. 

This card is inspired by the pretty, girly creations that Anita has come up with lately.  I have used only one stamp set, called Snow Swirled - I think this is a 'must have' Christmas set.  Unfortunately, I don't have it - I've borrowed it!  Not sure if you can see the detail, but I started off stamping one of the set's snowflake images in Versamark (clear) ink on the bottom half of the kraft card.  I stamped the same snowflake on the Pink Pirouette card, using Pink Pirouette ink.  The tree image is white-embossed on kraft, and the sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on kraft card.  This was a quick card to make, but I hope you agree it's a pretty one.
