52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge

Friday is here!  Hello and I hope everyone is having a craftasticable day!  I am so excited that this is my third post this week. 

My "adopted" Grammy, who lives in a care home, loves to send greeting cards. It is a way for her to feel connected to others and brings joy to the card recipients. I love to make cards and have offered to be her "supplier"....of greeting cards :) Everyone wins in this situation--Grammy stays in touch and reaches out to others, I have even more of an incentive to participate in challenges and grow as a paper crafter, and card recipients are blessed with a personalized gift. 

As always I am using Jaded Blossom products.  Here is my first Christmas card of 2015  that i am entering into the first challenge of the year over at 52 Christmas Card Challenge.  (drum roll please, hehehe)

Of course a close up.  I love how this snowflakes stamps!

I have used the following Jaded Blossom products:

Candy Wrap Dies – Sentiment
Elegant Holiday Greetings – snow flake and sentiment
Stampin’ up Pacific Point ink & paper
Doodle Bug Sequins
Rhinestones from my stash
Thank you for stopping by

I really enjoyed reading your post - I think your Grammy sounds lovely and I think that making cards for her is wonderful. Such a pretty Christmas card - I like the embossed background and super snowflake. Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week!
