 I loved the suspended Die Cut Challenge and  chose the one with the clear Lucite pocket. Since I chose a die cut that wasn't symmetrical I just reversed the die cut on the back to make it look finished.
Using Papertrey Inks Tremendous Treats Christmas bell. I colored the bow with Copics and glittered the bell.
The Sentiment is from SS Holiday Envelope Sentiment.
Papers are from PTI.
Bow is by Lil Inker Mini Bow.

I loved making this card. I used Papertrey Inks white along with Enchanted Evening cardstock. The Joy is from PTI Wonderful Words Holiday and the Holly is from Holiday Button Bits also by PTI.
I used Enchanted Evening patterned paper for the Joy and Lil Inker Stitched Rectangle Die for the front white panel. The inside was embossed with Cuttlebug's diagonal striped embossing folder.

I used My Favorite Things Winter Wreath then added stems from Martha Stewarts fern punch. I cut them out of brown paper then sprayed them with Gold Glitter Dust. The Peace die is from Papertrey Ink which I cut out of the card and again out of  gold paper, embossed it and reinserted into the card front.  The stars are from Papertrey's star border die, cut apart and glittered with red glitter. The bow is done the same way and from MFT's Winter Wreath. I had fun!

From the Make it Monday Stamped Square Frames on PTI I was inspired to use the Leaf Print Stamp and Die collection.
After I die cut them, I stamped them with Simply Chartreuse, Orange Zest, Terracotta Tile and Pure Poppy inks and stamped the veins in Dark Chocolate. I then sprinkled them with clear glitter.
I used the Mega Mat Stack 4 and the square I created using Boutique Borders Birthday. The sentiment is also from Boutique Borders Birthday. I adhered all to a Chocolate Brown Stripe and  Canyon Clay cardstock. The Buttons are f rom my Autumn Mix stash. It was a fun card to make.
