What is your favorite style of Christmas Cards?  Do you love traditional?  Unique colors? Elegant? Cute & fun?

Today's card uses a semi traditional color, blue, and definitely leans toward elegance with all the Silver and White Sparkle.

It is a single Z-Fold Fun Fold and is loaded with texture and dimension!

The Pool Party panel on the front narrow flap is embossed with the Fern 3D embossing folder -- one of my current favorites!  One half of the leafy die cut from Merriest Frames was cut from Silver Foil and adhered to that front flap.  I only adhered the rectangular area, so the leaves were left to float free.

The sentiment from Brightest Glow Stamp Set was embossed with Silver Embossing Powder on a Basic White die cut made with the rectangle stitched die from Merry Frames.  It is mounted to a mat of White Glimmer Paper and then the left portion of that assembly is adhered to the front flap.

Silver heat embossed poinsettias and holly leaves decorate the upper right corner of the sentiment.  The center of this larger poinsettia has a small poinsettia made with white glimmer paper as its top layer.  A tiny white glimmer poinsettia was made with dies from Merry Frames to decorate the lower left corner.  Both flowers have Iridescent Pearls as their center.  

The 5-3/8" x 4-1/8" Pool Party panel on the "inside" of the Z-Fold was embossed with the Hybrid Merry Frames Embossing Folder.  Another sentiment from Brightest Glow was heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder on Basic White and die cut with the rectangle stitched die from the set.  Another tiny 2-layer Poinsettia decorates the upper left corner.

The inside sentiment is positioned so that it is directly behind the front sentiment when the card is closed.

I hope you have enjoyed the Christmas Cards made with the Merriest Moments and Merriest Frames this week.

We all are drawn to different styles and colors, and the cards I shared this week all have their own unique style.  I'd love to hear which was your favorite?
