Clear Scraps and Quick Quotes Hop!

Happy Friday to you!  

I'm super excited to be part of this fun hop between Clear Scraps and Quick Quotes!!!  I received this beautiful "Send It Clear" card with a bell closure.  The Cracklin' Rose collection seemed like the perfect compliment to this card.  

I decided to use a bit of Glitter Modge Podge on the backs of my front bell closure pieces to simulate the feel of snow and ice.  You'll see the snowflakes and angel that were stamped with a bit of White Staz-On ink to give a bit of interest and texture to my card.  The glitter effect is very pretty but a little tricky to photograph.

I've adorned the bell with some ribbon at the top, a touch of bling and a button on the bottom.

The inside of my card...  I used the "Dreaming of a White Christmas"
Itty Bitty Vellum Quote and inked behind the vellum.

Here's the back of my card, all ready to address!

You can see I lined the right panel of my card so that the sentiment is totally obscured from the front when closed.  I thought it was a nice surprise.  There is still room on that right panel to include a cute Christmas photo too!

The Cracklin' Rose collection is so rich and elegant, it was perfect for this project!!!
