More VSN Mini.....inspired by Christmas

With a busy Friday night home alone with the boys (well, not really home....we had basketball practices and cub scout bowling) I managed to squeeze in a few more of the SCS VSN MINI challenges. I used the gorgeous, (THIS is a must have holiday set.....I can't seem to put it down) new Inspired by Christmas set to make two completely different cards.
First is for the Marshmallow World Challenge....make an all white card. 

I pulled out some SU Shimmer white cs and used that for my main panel. I cut out a frame with the Vintage Cameo Frame die-namic and stamped the sentiment on the oval, popping it up on dimensionals.  I then cut two large snowflakes with Puff Cloud White MFT felt. I touched the edge with some stickles glitter, but it wasn't enough, so I added a few pops of color by adding some red rhinestones.  The whole thing was wrapped with silver cord!  I think I'll be making a few more of these for my holiday stash. Love that it's a relatively flat card, perfect for mailing!

Then I inked up my bells for the Jingle Bell Rock challenge (make a card inspired by your favorite holiday song).
  I used some music note dp by Authentique, added a few scallops (scallop border die-namic and scallop riobbon die-namic) and tied it all up with my new GORGEOUS gingham ribbon (my ribbon carousel order arrived....yeah!!!) and some twine and real jingle bells. The sentiment reminds me of the Polar Express movie. Can't wait to pull that out for the boys again this year. It's become a fast, family Holiday classic!
You can check out the rest of the VSN Mini Winter Wonderland challenges over at Splitcoast. You have until Monday to play and get your creations uploaded!
