White and Gold Christmas.....

Hello again, dear friends: I finished this card yesterday but didn't have a chance to post it so, here it is, I'm linking this card to the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown with a color challenge of White and metallic gold, the Crafty Hazelnut Christmas Challenge "Anything Goes" as long as it's Christmas and the Pixie's Crafty Workshop which asks to use our "snippets" of paper.  Here is my card.


There is just one stamped image on this card and it's on the finished inside, everything is die cut. The Jingle Bells are from Memory Box and the beautiful leaf wreath is done with my brand new and amazing Botanical Builder Framelits dies from Stampin Up!  I'm in love with this dies!!!!!
The "JOY" word is die cut with THIS Penny Black die set, really pretty fonts. I tied a bit of gold thread on each of the bells just to make them look like they are tied to the wreath.


This is a picture of the finished inside, it came out really pretty, it actually looks like another card, LOL!!

The golden Poinsettia is the only stamped image, it's from Power Poppy's Merry Littles which has a whole bunch of adorable little images.



Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

  3. Love the bells! Is there just one in the set and you die cut it 10 times? The first I've seen that new SU! die as a wreath, you're genius! Very classy!

    1. Patti, the bells come in a die with 5 of them, I just die cut them twice and the fern on the SU Botanical Builder set is just perfect to make wreaths because the die cut curves a little so it's easy to make it round.
      Thanks, my friend.
