Itty Bitty Christmas, Let it Snow DSP, Christmas Card

Today I played with an interesting die cut that I had. I'm not so fond of it. It's pretty and all but it's difficult to work with.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.

On the left I taped a scrap piece from the "Let it Snow" Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack.  My piece measured 5-1/2" x 2".

I die cut the bulb using Dazzling Diamonds glitter paper. I also cut the top part again so I could color it.  The trees and stars were cut from the dame glitter paper. This die had the trees and stars with it.  

I found the cute image on Pinterest. I just did a search for "Vintage Girl with Snowmen".  I found a child with a snowman and I clicked on it and then I scrolled down to see what other images there were under that search and I found it there.  I copied it to my computer and then I printed it out after sizing it to fit the circle.  Here's the link to this image. 

I put the die over my image and cut it out.  Then I had to figure out a way to get it to stick back into the circle. I ended up adding little bits of scotch tape to it.  And I added LOTS 

I took my spritzer bottle and mixed some Real Red ink with alcohol and sprayed the ribbon piece. I did trim it up a bit to get only the ribbon.  I sprayed the trees using Pool Party ink and alcohol and the stars with Daffodil Delight ink and alcohol.  I let them dry before I glued them in place.  They dry pretty fast.

I cut the tip of the bulb using some silver foil card stock.  That piece is also a single die in the set.  

The words are from the Itty Bitty Christmas" set.  I stamped them using Shaded Spruce ink.  

I was ready to set the bulb in place. I added Dimensionals to the back, making sure I caught both the circle and the rest of the bulb.  I REALLY wanted to make sure that circle wasn't coming out.  I set the bulb up a little higher than center and that was it.

It was a fun card to make but I need to rethink how to work with it so I don't have to work so hard to make sure that circle stays in place.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
