Classy Cards N Such - Our House to Yours

Hello, Stamping Friends.  Time is sure flying and not only will the snow be upon us soon,  so will Christmas.  Luckily the Classy Cards and Such challenge this week is to make a Christmas card with Christmas dies.   Now I have one more Christmas card to add to my stash.

I started off with the white card base, I cut a piece of red glitter paper to layer on top of it.    I used white card stock to layer over the glitter paper.  
I used adhesive to adhere these layers to the card stock.   I used a scrap piece of white card stock and used the Memory Box Frostyville border to make the snowflake border for the top of the  card.  I used glue to adhere it to the card.  I put glue over the snow flakes and added Crystal Ice glitter.   I love how it sparkles.  Next I took silver paper and used the Poppy Stamps Village Lamp Post die to cut the lamp post.  I cut  the glass for the lamps from light blue glitter paper to give the lamps a frosty look.  I decided the lamp post needed to be decorated for Christmas.  I used a branch punch and green paper to make the greenery.   I used the Memory Box Precious Mittens Die to  cut the bow  from Red Glitter paper.  I saved the mittens to use on another project.  I used glue dots to adhere the lamp post and the greenery, with the ribbon, to the card.  For the finishing touch, I used a stamp from my collection and red ink to stamp the sentiment.

Be sure to join us for the challenge this week and you will have another Christmas card for your stash.     We have a Christmas inspiration picture for you and the challenge is to use Christmas dies.
