Did you do a little intake of breath the first time you saw the Christmas Lodge stamp set in the 2011 Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog?  I sure did.  


So you want to order the Christmas Lodge stamp set, or already did.  So, are card ideas flying?  Or could you use a simply sensational card idea?  This handmade card idea is both – simple, sensational and elegant.



The Christmas lodge almost fully fits onto one of the ovals from the Sizzix Ovals Originals Die.  Doesn't it look like it is framed with the embossed snowflakes?


When I tried to layer the embossed snowflakes on Very Vanilla card stock, it took away from the Christmas lodge.  The Very Vanilla oval with the Always Artichoke stamped lodge just popped off the card when the embossed snowflakes layer was layered again on an Always Artichoke card stock base.


Want to see my favorite part?  Look at glistening snow on the roof.



The glistening snow was so easy to do with the new Dazzling Details.  The beautiful glitter is a glue.  Just gently squeeze the bottle and spread with the tip.  Talk about a small touch that steps your card up a notch.  Perhaps two or three notches!


Card making is a lot of fun, but not when you are stuck for ideas.  Does this happen to you?  If so, give the Stamping Smiles Hassle-Free Cards a try!  For a low monthly subscription price, you receive an exclusive card idea in your inbox every 15 days.  Not so often you feel overwhelmed, just in time to feel inspired.
