It is an {ippity} Monday!

Good Morning! Happy Monday!

Well it is happy because it is a {ippity} Blog Hop Day, and there is a lot of {ippity} goodness out there to be shared!

The challenge for todays Blog Hop was to make a project using 4 of a kind!
I decided that I was going to do a Christmas card for this challenge. Maybe if I start now I might actually get them ALL done this year! ;)

I used the {ippity} set " Season of Joy" from the newest release. ( which I do have on sale! ;) )

I have several "4's" on this card! There are 4 snowflakes, 4 squares, 4 label1's, 4 rhinestones and 4 layers!

I used frosty VersaMark ink and silver ranger embossing powder for the snowflakes and did a resist with tumbled glass distress ink from ranger on Ginak pure luxury white cs. The white squares are White Diamond CS from The Paper Temptress, it has a beautiful shimmer to it that I don't think the photo captures very well. The blue layer is ocean mist from GinaK and I sprayed it with Tattered Angels Pearl glimmer mist, then everything is mounted on Pure luxury white.

I used a rectangle nestie to create the tag and then used a slot hole punch for the ribbon to go through. The ribbon I bought at Micheal's last Christmas for 1$!

I did use pop dots to give the card some dimension.

The clear rhinestones I bought at Cat's Craft Cupboard awhile back as well as the Ranger silver embossing powder. This embossing powder is not a silver in the true sense of the word or description I guess you would say. It is more of a pearlized version, softer I think.

I hope you like what I came up with! Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to read my post!
All of your comments are always so kind and I truly appreciate each one of them!!

Have a Fantastic week,

Blessings and Hugs to each of you,
