At last! I have a Christmas card made only one of six now in my stash. Honestly, this is just pitiful for what I had planned! I wanted to have at a minimum of 12 to go out, but that's just not going to happen. Any way, I've completely enjoyed this whole design process and I loved having some darling images to work with.

Here I've used #3090 Tilda with Snowy Heart from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection. I have five more images to work with from Diana's fabulous collection. If you're in the market for some great deals, using her code " " you can save yourself some money while building up your stash! Please run right now over to her awesome shop to see all the fabulous deals she has going on.

I have also used my newest Memory Box Dies for the snowflake border and corner on this card. So absolutely delicate and beautiful and the paper falls right out of the die. No trying to manipulate something in behind the paper to release your image. These are gorgeous dies and they are on sale right now!

So here is the card I made...

I used Bo Bunny double sided paper 'Tis the season Snow Flakes'. I love the double layer I used on the front because I really wanted the red and white look to the card...

A different view of the card...

The inside upper panel used both sides of the dp. I used my SB Fancy Labels to make the hinges and added red rhinestones from my stash. I also used SB Petite Ovals and Petite Oval Scallops. The sentiment is from the Amy R collection called Handy Christmas Greetings.

The sentiment used on this notation panel is from the same Amy R Collection.

Other things I used to create this card...

E0000, 000, 00, 11, chalk for the cheeks, C9, 7, 5, 3, 1; R46, 22, 21

Merry Christmas Sentiment - Magnolia
Stickles - Starduts, Icicle from stash
Puff paint
MS Coarse Glitter
Rhinestones - stash
Viva Pearl Pen - Cream
SB Nestabilities
Seam Binding - stash

Hope you've enjoyed your visit to my blog. Please come back soon. I promise I will have more to share with you then....
