Merry Little Christmas Challenge

Merry Little Christmas Challenge Time

Hello Everyone!
It's a new month and that means the start of a new monthly challenge
WOW here we already are in the middle of 2020 ... time is flying
and I'm so happy I've got yet another holiday ready to add to the pile!
Here's what I have to share with you today . . .
Don't you just love that Country Cabin Plaid?
I've mixed some old product & new product together for this card.
This awesome plaid is from the Echo Park 'My Favorite Christmas' 6x6 pack
as is the sentiment.   To showcase my Cheery Lynn Designs 'Bring Home Christmas' die, I've die cut two background panels using the VERY OLD Spellbinder Labels 4 die cutting set.
Instead of stacking the labels panels, I actually cut the larger one from black
then die cut the center of that panel with the next size smaller die.  
Using that same next size smaller die, I cut a panel from white card stock
and sponged some blue Tim Holtz distress ink over it to create a 'sky' effect.
I also added 'snow' on the background and on the branches of the tree using Nuvo White
Crystal Drops.
The upper icicle panel was created from a scrap of white card stock 
and I use another very old item ... a Martha Stewart icicle PUNCH!
Yikes ... I haven't used my punches much at all since I got HOOKED on dies!  LOL
The sentiment is also a part of the paper pack, I simply die cut it
AND ... here's a peek at the inside!  Yes I finally remembered to
complete the inside before adding it to the pile ... LOL.
I hope you've enjoyed today's Christmas card and I can't wait to see what you create and share over at the Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by and wishing you a fabulous week ahead!
As always ...
