Christmas Kids

I made this card for the Cuttlebug Mania 'Winter' challenge.  I'm also entering the Christmas Kickstart Challenge 'Bundle Up', the Fab 'n' Funky Challenges 'Creating for Christmas' and the Cutie Pie Challenge 'Cute, Clean and Simple'.

5" x 5" white matt card blank
Lili of the Valley 'Christmas Kids' Die-Cut Image
Lawn Fawn 'Outside In Stitched Squares Stackables' dies
Kars tan embossing mat
Woodware 'Large Snowflake' and 'Regular Snowflake' punches
Lili of the Valley 'Classic Christmas' paper
Marianne Design 'Snow Paper'
Red card
Diamond Stickles
Clear gems
Wink of Stella

I glued a square of red Christmas tree paper onto red card and used the two largest dies to cut and emboss a frame.  I used the smaller of these two dies to cut and emboss the pre-coloured image.  I attached the frame to the centre of the card and inlaid the image. I punched one large and two regular snowflakes from the Snow Paper and attached them to the card, adding small clear gems to the centres.  I added Diamond Stickles to the snow and snowflakes on the image and highlighted the boy and dog with a Wink of Stella.

This is a really sweet image Kath and I love how you have framed with the die cut frames, and a great idea to stick the paper to card and die cut again for the outer frame. A gorgeous card! x
