PIZZAZZ a plenty Xmas Card

Good morning! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Currently I am enjoying creating with some of my new purchases from Pizzazz a Plenty. I had been told that the Dark Red cardstock was amazing and thought that I might try it for Chrismas cards. OMG, I am here to tell you that this is the most amazing card stock I have ever used! It is sooooooo soft it almost feels like velvet or suede. I am a touchy/feely person...love texture! This pic really does not do justice to the color as it is a dark, deep red. I used Fancy Tags and Fancy Squares Nestabilities to cut my shapes. Added my bling...the irridescent reindeer and the shiny flat silver pearls are also from Pizzazz a Plenty. The ribbon is some from my stash...for once I had ribbon the color I needed when completing a card...and the snowflakes were created using a mini punch I had! Well, I hope you like my creation, I am pleased with its clean and simple design. Today, I have a baby shower to attend and will go to church this afternoon. Not real sure what the rest of my weekend will entail but hopefully it will include more time for creating! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I thank you so much for stopping by!

HUGS!

OMG, Vicki, what an absolutely gorgeous card! I have those Nestabilities, but would never have thought to turn the Fancy Tags vertical. Love the use of the little padded reindeer, and of course, the shiny silver pearls are one of my favorites. The dark red matte cardstock is perfect on this card. Thanks for such a wonderfully creative use of the products!!
Hugs,
