Joyeux Noel - Bloggers Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with last weeks Button(s) Challenge. This weeks challenge is Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa. 

My Christmas card is created with Artistic Outpost Stamps, Top Dog Dies and pattern paper from Bo Bunny.


I stamped the Vintage Santa image from the Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods plate in Espresso ink on a Vanilla panel, sponged the edges and layered it on a Cherry Cobbler doily that was die cut using Top Dog Dies Cherish Doilies and Tags Set (TC027).  The Espresso scallop edge under the middle panel was die cut using the Darby Doily & Tags Die Set (TC025).  After die cutting the Doily, I simply measured the length and width of the center panel I wanted to adhere over the doily and cut it to size.  To embellish I added a stamped tag die cut from Vanilla card stock using the smallest tag from the Darby Doily & Tags Die Set, Vintage Brown Seam Binding, a Prima poinsettia flower and flourishes die cut from Hunter card stock using the Leafy Flourishes Die Set (TC016).
