Happy Christmas

I made this card for the Dies R Us 'Use a Die Cut Sentiment as the Focus' challenge.  As I'm on a mission to use my snippets mountain, I'm heading to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.  I'm also entering Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Use a Die Cut', Crafty Cardmakers 'Lots of Layers', ABC Christmas Challenge 'O for Old' (I used old dies and papers), Die Cut Divas 'Christmas in July' and Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes'.


Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk tent fold
Dies: Creative Expressions 'Contemporary Happy Christmas', Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Classic Ovals Large' and 'Lacey Ovals'
Embossing: Crafts-Too 'Twinkle' embossing folder
Snippets: Gold pearlescent and whilte silk card, patterned paper

I trimmed the paper, layered it onto gold card and attached it to the card front.  I die cut a Lacey Oval and sentiment from gold card and set them aside.  I die cut an oval from white card and then die cut the sentiment from the centre.  I attached double sided tape to the rear of the oval and inlaid the sentiment before embossing it with the Twinkle folder.  The sentiment was layered onto the Lacey Oval and attached to the centre of the card.
