All products used for my card are from A Muse Studio. For my card I used Cobalt card stock to create a frame with my nestabilities  labels #8. I embossed my snowflakes with Diamond embossing powder over Sky ink, on our velum paper. The sentiment is stamped with Cobalt ink directly onto the Sugar card base, then  covered with the velum layer. I used the cobalt frame not only to draw focus to the center of my card, but also to hide the lines created by the glue on the velum! The ribbon is from my stash, and wraps all the way around the front flap of the card. It's kind of fun to do this if you intend to add a photo inside, just slip it under the ribbon to hold it in place on the inside of your card! I just realized that this stamp set is not in the current catalog, but our new holiday catalog will be out at the end of this month, I am hoping that this set will be in there, it is so lovely!

Enjoy the hop!! Have a wonderful day!!
