Tis' The Season - Cheery Lynn Designs




Hi and Good Morning :)
 
My card today is for our new challenge this week over at Cheery Lynn Designs, where this weeks theme is  'T'is the Season' and you still have bags of time to enter to be in with a chance of winning a brilliant prize so I hope you find time to play along.
 
Now I have loved making my christmas cards this year with Cheery Lynn Dies, there are so many fabulous and seasonal dies to choose from I was never stuck for ideas or inspiration. 
 
I started off with a  6 x 6 inch blank card base and I layered MME papers onto dark green bazzil cardstock.  I cut 2 Tiffany Border dies, enabling me to shadow the dark green with a splash of cream for contrast, and also did the same with the stunning O' Tannenbaum Tree.  I hand-beaded pearl seed beads onto the tree following the patterns on the die and this made it really easy and effective! :)  I  added a the Holly Lace Flourish, Christmas Lights and Holly Corner dies to the card panels before centering my main image onto matted oval stackers.  I finally added a bit of twine, wooden snowflake and a moonstone brad for a finishing touch.
 
All dies used on this card are:
 
 
I cant wait to see what you do with this weeks challenge, we are on the final stretch to christmas, and a hand-made card is always really special both to give and to receive.   Dont forget to check on our Cheery Lynn Designs blog for fresh daily inspiration and more fabulous creations by the very talented DT too.
 
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and I hope you have a smashing week,

Absolutely strikingly intricate - especially with your hand beaded tree! Love the softness you acheived with the cream & dark green & using just that hint of red overall & to accent. The impact of the base red & white is beautifully muted & I love the way so many of your elements extend beyond the basic card shape.
