A Swirly Bird and Snow Place Christmas Card

I promise I won't do another Christmas in July card!  I'm not a big fan of Christmas in July.  I'm not in the Christmas spirit this time of year. I like to go to the stores when the Christmas music is playing and the store is all aglow with Christmas items and smells too! So with that said, I will hold off for a few months before I make any more Christmas cards.

I had the "Swirly Bird" bundle for a few days making card and this card came to mind.  SO I cut out the front panel and set it aside for a day that I had time to play with it and see if what was in my head would come out well on paper.  It did, I like how it ended up/.

I used the "Snow Place" set and matching die for the snowman, hat and holly.  I especially loved the holly.  It was fun to just stamp it and use the die to cut it out.  Fussy cutting is something I'm not all that fond of and especially on small tiny pieces.

First I stamped the snowflakes using the white craft ink.  I set it aside to give it time to dry.  Next I punched out a 2-1/2" circle of Whisper White and tore it for the snow. Then I stamped the snowman, arms, hat and holly.  I took a red Sharpie and colored the rhinestones in and set them aside to dry while I hunted down my glue dots.  I used those to put the holly in place on the hat and the word panel.  The words are from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set.  I was going to use some wording from the "Snow Place" set but I forgot and I knew I couldn't stamp it once I got the card front on the card base. I've tried that before, it just doesn't work!  I like the words from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set.  I punched the words close to the edge so I had an open space on the left to add the holly.  The words are set in place using Dimensionals.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
