Hi and Good Morning  :)  This week over on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog I am  sharing a Christmas card created using more of the gorgeous new release dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.

I used a 7 x 5 blank card base for this, and I cut a strip vertically from the front panel, so it shows the underneath of the card.  I used some of my favourite frosty printed card on the front and inside, and then attached the beautiful Tiffany Border for a lacey edge.

I coloured my image with PM's, and matted and layered onto Oval Stackers and Scalloped oval stackers and cut the Italian Flourish doily (which looks like a beautiful snowflake to me) in half to frame the oval with a delicate background. 

The bottom of the card is decorated with the stunning Winter Neighbourhood Border and the top of the card shows the fabulous Santa's Sleigh & Reindeer.  The white poinsetta flowers were inked delicately with blue and dipped into frosty glitter, and I added snow paste, glitter and pearls for a finishing touch.

All dies used on this card are:

B324 - Poinsetta Flower Strip
B137 - Tiffany Border
B326 - Santa's Sleigh and Reindeer
B323 Winter Neighbourhood Border
DL103 - Italian Flourish Doily
L-7 - Oval Stackers
XL - 8 - Oval Scalloped Stackers

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I hope you find time to join us in our challenge where our theme is Frame It.

Have a smashing week!

Hi Alison, This card is simply stunning! I love they way you use your dies and the way this card just has that clean crispy first snow of the season feel to it. Really this is just so gorgeous! I love it. Hope you are doing well. I am still struggling with working 58 hour weeks, teenagers going back to school and when I am off work being so tired that I just can't make myself be crafty. I can not wait until my mojo comes back as I really do what to be creative. It is truly my relaxing time and I miss it and all of my blogging friends as well. Hugs, Lisa G
