Christmas Is the Day - Mounted

For my card I have used one of Suzanne's new stamps - Christmas is the Day, which is actually attached to the inside of the window of this card.  Over the die cut window is a piece of acetate that has a piece of Glitterfoil attached over it.  A frame for the opening was die cut using two sizes of Stitched Frames.

The gold Christmas die cut sentiment was die cut using Suzanne's A Way With Words "Merry Christmas - 2" die.  To help elevate this sentiment, a second Christmas was die cut using Fun Foam and the two pieces glued together.

To decorate the card further, Susan's Garden Notes Small Poinsettia dies were used for the flower and Els van de Burgt Studio Holiday Garlands 2 die set used for the border on the side and the additional snowflakes.


When you open the card, you will see the gold embossed sentiment that shows through the window on the front of the card.  At the bottom, another Holiday Garland was added.

Be sure to visit all 7 Quietfire Creations Design Team Blogs, and leave a comment before Midnight, Sunday, Oct 2, for a chance to win prizes.  You have 7 chances to win Quietfire stamps or dies!

It's always so exciting to see what you have created. I'm already working on my Christmas cards because it's only fun and relaxing, for me, if I do it at my own pace vs. feeling the pressure of time running out.

Love your card and thanks for the inspiration.

Selma: Your Christmas designs are gorgeous. Love the monotone white. Pure elegance.

Barbara Baxter said...

I love the classic white and gold colors that you used. The poinsettia on the outside of the card is gorgeous! I also love the window with the glitter paper on the outside of the card (I will now get out my glitter paper and use it on something as it is stunning!) and a different look at the stamped sentiment on the inside. And adding the holiday garland to the inside was perfect. Thank you for sharing!
