Meet Me Under the Mistletoe

I made this card before Christmas and never had a chance to upload it here.  This was a quick and easy card to make.  I just picked the papers and went from there with the colors.  This is some of the Ski Slope patterned paper from the SU  holiday mini along with some riding hood red cardstock.  The felt snowflake and grosgrain ribbon is also from the mini catalog.

I added some glitter to the liquid applique snow for some sparkle.  I took quite a few photos and never could get a good one of the sparkle.  I used some chunky glitter so it looks neat in real life.  Some stitching and a button finish off my card.

How was everyone's Christmas?  Ours was very nice.  We stayed home and just had a wonderful family day.  Anyone get some neat storage stuff?  I'm always on the look out for storage ideas.  I have one to share myself.  My husband made me a ribbon holder.  I'll snap a photo and share it soon.  I love it!  Anyone care to share how they store their buttons?  I have an idea, but I'd love to hear what others use.

Have a great weekend!

Glad you had a good Christmas! Can't wait to see the ribbon holder!
I store my buttons in small candy jars-one jar for each color. They are great. I think I picked them up at IKEA.
Have a great evening!

Good to hear you had a nice Christmas with your family. We've got one last get-together tomorrow and we will have seen everyone on both sides of the family.
I store my buttons in a clear plastic case with 17 compartments that I got for $1.99 in the craft section at Wal-Mart (they have them at Hobby Lobby too). I have the buttons sorted by color groups so it's easy to see what's inside and the case snaps shut when I'm done.

Absolutely adorable card, Niki!!!
My buttons are stored in little clear glass jars I picked up at Wal-mart in the food storage section. Right now they are stored in color groups but my goal is to eventually have one for every color!
