Three Minute snow flurry

I always post a three minute card on Thursdays to inspire those who have little time for card making and today it's a Christmas design that would be good for making multiples and posts easily too. Come and see:

White texture on white card stock is always an appealing look and these snowflakes on the gorgeous new Northern Flurry embossing folder almost make a Christmas card on their own!

All that's required is the addition of a Real Red border, this fabulous ribbon-style sentiment from Sassy Salutations and a few sparkling rhinestones.

These snowflakes are as pretty as the real thing and much warmer! AND they are just the thing to enter into Sandra's Rudolph Day challenge today!

Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Sassy Salutations
Ink: Real Red
Card stock: Whisper White, Real Red
Other: Northern Flurry embossing folder, Big Shot, Basic Rhinestones, stamp-a-majig

I'm committed to providing excellent customer service and am always happy to offer help and advice. To place your order, just send me an email or give me a call on +44 (0) 1280 820593.

It's cold enough here for my fingers to go purple while I type despite the fact it's not even winter yet. I have discovered though that the stretchy top I bought to wear to zumba is coming into its own... now if only they'd labelled it 'Blogging Top' I would've bought three!

See you tomorrow,


  1. Vicky, I love that embossing folder too. Very pretty card!

  2. oooo, my fave sentiment set. This is gorgeous! Don't forget I have a DT call over at Addicted to CAS if you are interested..... :) :) :) xx

  3. A fab christmas card Vicky! I love the CAS design!

  4. A lovely 3 minute card! Last night I hesitated to order that set of words, I didn't, and now wish I had! Our weather in France is cooling down today too.

  5. Beautiful card Vicky, very elegant and l really like the Sassy Salutations collection. It's having a bit of an 'over-use' in my house!

    I sound just like you, my fingers and toes go purple due to poor circulation and low blood pressure hence why l'm always cold. I wrap up in so many layers l'm like a Spanish onion lol

    Keep warm, l'm afraid the bad news is that it's going to get cold in the next few days :(


  6. I love how you can create something so stunning in three minutes. Another absolute beauty. Hugs, Buttons x

  8. Stunning card. You are right...that folder and the rhinestones is all it needs!

  9. Simply stunning Vicky, the snowflakes are gorgeous and I love the swirly sentiment! That typo is a great idea but if I was wearing it it would end up very inky and glittery:)
