52CCTD41 Joy to the World

 Hi peeps!  Wow, what a fabulous weekend weather-wise we had...temps in the mid-70s!  I think we are having the October weather that passed us by last month!  I am sure we'll pay for it later on, though, LOL!  The Christmas Card Throwdown challenge had a "challenging" sketch for sure, but I gave it a go!  Here's the sketch:

I have my stamp clubs today, so I was trying to make some samples with the Classic Christmas DSP papers...I just love them!  SO here we go, in the color palette of Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce:

I used a die from Ornate Layers and layered on pieces of the little tree pattern in the corresponding colors:

These dies are a bit fussy to use, but they certainly are worth the effort!  In order to not compete with the intricate borders, I just did a very simple sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas.  I did put the panels on a layer of Whisper White diecut with a Stitched Rectangle die and embossed with the Dainty Diamonds EF!  Another Christmas card to add to the stash!  Thanks for popping in today---enjoy it and be blessed!

Lovely, I enjoy your Monday Christmas cards,
What trick do you use to get the 'Sticking Chads", out of your designs?

I love all the textures you've got in this. Wonderfully done!

Those dies are ornate and I can imagine there's quite a bit of poking bits out of them! Love the EF in the background and oh my goodness, let's all wish joy to the world! Vicky x
