Christmas is getting closer...

We're getting closer and closer to the big day, so of course I have another Christmas project, a card this time. So let's jump right on in, and I'll show you how it was made.

I started with a Kraft cardstock card, 4in x 9in in size.  Using the 2mm tip of my ZIG Fabricolor pen in Cobalt Blue, I created a simple doodle around the edge.  Even though this pen is made for use on fabric, it works perfectly on paper too.  I chose this pen because the color was a perfect match to the baker's twine I had chosen.

Next, I punched around the edge of a piece of white cardstock cut to 3 1/2 in x 8 1/2 in.  Set aside several of the punched snowflakes for use later.  Then I used the brush tip of the same pen to ink the edge of the whit cardstock. The adhere the white cardstock to the kraft cardstock base.

Using the brush tip of the same pen, I inked and stamped my sentiment and several snowflakes.

Next, I adhered several of the punched snowflakes using my ZIG 2Way Glue pen.  I also added a piece of baker's twine around the card.

Lastly, I drew over each of the snowflakes with my ZIG Wink of Stella pen in Glitter Clear.  I can't tell you how much I love this pen.  Such an each way to add a bit of glimmer.

A simple yet adorable card.  Now, the only question is who do I give it to?
