ID: MC May16 - Now Dasher Now Dancer - ECD Winter - Joyeux Noel card
size: 7"w x 5"h

Created: May 29, 2016

Well this is the 1st Xmas card for 2016... It's that time to start making them. 

One of the NEWEST "A Way With Words" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs ("4 Seasons" 4pce die set) I believe are available now, designed by Suzanne Cannon (also available HERE). 

I'm also using a sentiment and part of a sentiment stamp on the inside from Quietfire Design  

("International Merry Christmas" 6 pce set);  ("All our Best Wishes")


Scored and side folded my cream toned cardstock.

The over piece to create the full size card was a left over piece that had been die cut  using Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Rectangles", then used the "Stitched Ovals" to die cut the opening. Sponged with Distress "Chipped Sapphire" then adhered to card front.

Die cut the reindeer (Sizzix Tim Holtz "Reindeer Flight") from a brown scrapbook cardstock which was laying on my desk from a previous project... Adhered to front adding mini amber rhinestone eyes.

Stamped the "Now Dasher..." which is one of my own rubber stamps created with my calligraphy using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Die cut with Spellbinders "circle" die set and sponged with the blue. adhered to card front.


On the inside: stamped the house to fit into the oval front opening using the black. Colored with Prisma colored pencils.

Die cut the word "Winter, twice from white cardstock. Top layer inked with Versamark and embossed with Emerald Creek Hot Stuff "Soft Fallen Snow" embossing powder. The under layer colored with a blue colored pencil. Adhered both layers off set, then onto the card.

Stamped the word "Wishes" with the black and clear embossed.

Stamped the "Joyeux Noel" (first cutting the stamp between the 2 words) using the black and clear embossed. Die cut the with circles die set, sponged with the blue and adhered to inside. Die cut the bauble holder, embossed with Queen's Gold embossing powder. Adhered the gold metallic ribbon using Sookwang tape.
