Shelly says:I just love the neutrals of the All is Bright collection with that pop of red and blue. That soft kraft is just perfection. We all know that this collection is perfect for your holiday pages, but that soft blue works awesome for winter pages too.
I am not much of a hexagon user, but they just seemed to be calling my name for this page. To add a touch of winter to them, I embellished them with some snowflakes and gems.

On my first card, Merry Christmas, I used the bird stamp and added all kinds of Martha Stewart Glitter and well, I may not even send this one out, that bird has stolen my heart. The image stamped crisply and oh so beautifully! I love that you can also use any/all of this line to create "winter" cards if you do not personally celebrate Christmas or are sending cards to others who do not celebrate Christmas.
Adding glitter to the snowflake added "sparkle" to an already gorgeous image. I chose to add some stitching around the snowflake to draw the eye to the bird. I then decided adding some of the banners would add splashes of patterns and colors. I glittered the chipboard banner piece to draw your eye to the fact that it was chipboard, I loved the result and I will definitely do that again.
The buttons that come in this line are the perfect finishing embellishment for the cards and projects alike. I can not tell you how much I love the varying sizes, colors and yes, even patterns...beautiful!
I added a bunch of glitter to my snowflake die-cut and it added sparkle to the card and drew your eyes downward.
On my Merry, Merry card, I chose to highlight the various buttons because I love them so. I love the little Santa image and wanted the colors in the button to draw attention to him. You could certainly substitute stamps for the sentiment die-cuts that are stitched along the bottom, I had them cut so I decided to use them, but stamped tags would be oh so beautiful.
I love this line so much, from buttons, to chipboard, to stickers, it makes creating so easy and the finished result...gorgeous!
Have a beautiful and blessed weekend,MME fans!
