Today I am having fun working with some more new dies from Joan's Gardens to create a quick and easy Christmas card. This card does not need much explanation but to tell you what dies I used. The Cheery Lynn "Santa's Sleigh" (DL 173) is such a pretty die cut, don't you think. It cut out really easy. The Christmas Tree is the Marianne Designs (LR0174) tree die. The hanging sign and bracket are from the Marianne Designs (LR0191) package. There are three pieces in this set: the bracket, sign, and a lamp. You can use the bracket for the post for the lamp. I love it when you can use these die cuts for more than one thing. The small snowflake is from the Marianne Designs LR0123) package which comes with three snowflakes. A piece of white card stock was cut with scissors to create snow at the bottom of the card then fine aqua glitter was added to give the card some sparkle. I used the Quickie Glue Pen to add glue to the areas I wanted to add the glitter. A small organdy bow was added to complete the card. This is a 5.5" x 6" card and the design paper is from the KaiserCraft "Chapter One" paper pad.
Now are you wondering about that doily behind the card? It is not attached to the card because this is a 5.5" x 6" card and it would make it to large. I couldn't resist using the Cheery Lynn "Mega Italian Flourish" Doily (DL159) for the background. This doily measures 7.5 x 7.5". It is a larger version of the small Italian Flourish Doily (DL103).
I love how you can complete a very pretty Christmas card by just using dies, don't you. All these dies are available from Joan's Gardens.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend.
