Christmas Dreams

Good morning all!

I'm well and truly in Christmas card making mode now, it seems all the cards I make are Christmas-themed! I just need so many still! My card for today is no exception, I'm hoping to inspire you to join our challenge @ Fab 'n Funky this week, which is themed "Die-cuts/Punches". I went the punch route and used my gift box border and snow flake punches to create this card. I also used a rounded corner punch for the inside of the card. The base for this card was a lovely piece of glittery paper that I recently delved out of my stash, I forgot I even had it. I'm glad I found it though, as it's just so gorgeous and perfect for those holiday cards! Even though the dreamy image I used might not be obviously Christmas-themed, I think the total card is definitely festive.

* Glitter paper & dark blue CS from stash
* Studio Light Decoupage image
* MS border punch 'Presents'
* Joy Crafts Flower punch (which I use for making snow flakes)
* Rounded corner punch
* Sentiment on the front from stash (perhaps from a Fairy Doodles die-cut sheet?)
* Eline's Winterhuis stamp set (sentiment inside)
* SEI Christmas Mint Vanilla Icing Accents
* Peel offs & gems from stash
