Happy Sunday All!

It's Christmas in July at the Tutti Designs Store and their July Release is jam packed full of awesome holiday dies!  You'll want to be sure to pop over and make your purchase early before they run out!  Today my card showcases two dies from this current release and one die from last July's release (MORE holiday goodness!).

The dies used today are:

It only takes a few EXTRA steps to make your card extra special.
They always say the 'little details' make the biggest difference.
Here are a few of the little extras I did today.

First of all, I knew I wanted to add extra dimension but not so much that the postage would be extra.

In order to accomplish this, I simply die cut my Winter House THREE times and glued them together.  

This technique is SO EASY yet adds that 'little something'!

Secondly, I die cut the corner bells from bronze foil card stock.  I know it's difficult to see in the photo but it really adds that extra holiday sparkle & shine to my card.  AND, if you notice, the corner die has a ROUNDED corner.  So to add another 'little something', I used a corner rounder from Creative Memories to cut my background paper as well as my actual white card base.  I left the remaining corners square.

And lastly, another touch of sparkle was needed so I dusted off my Stickles and got busy decorating the trees on either side of the Winter House.

By having the extra dimension of the 'stacked' houses, this gave me a nice 'well' to fill.  I've used red, green and gold.

OH and did you notice the little star on my Noel word sentiment?  It happened to still be stuck to the back of my corner bells and of course when it fell onto my table, it just begged to be used ... so I did!  LOL

Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store and check out all of the fabulous dies in this latest release.  And, of course, you'll want to browse through the store to see what other dies you need to have on hand.

Straight to the wish list! I've been wanting those snow globe words since last year, and I adore the Bell Corner and Winter House. Surely I need more Christmas dies, right? I do like that rounded corner and how the little stars pop out. Such a pretty card, Darlene, and one more done for Christmas! Yay!

Oh my word, I LOVE that cute little house...I think I NEED/WANT it! Your card is really cute and I love the patterned paper you used. Adds a lot or whimsy to this, well done!!!!

That little house scene is so cute, like how you decorated the trees and the sentiment :) The metallic corner is cool, and great idea to round the corner of the card too!
