Snowman Season, So Many Snowflakes, Christmas Card

I was going to make another Halloween card today but I think I'm all Halloween carded out! Maybe one more but not today! I decided to work on a sparkly Christmas card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Basic White card stock for the top layer.

I set the top layer piece in my Stamparatus and I stamped the "Merry Christmas" from the "Snowman Season" set. I think it has a pretty font. A little fancy and a little playful too! I stamped the words using Balmy Blue ink.

I had die cut the large ring using two circle dies. I had used the 1-7/8" for the outer part of the circle and then I die cut the glitter paper circle on the inside using the 1-5/8" circle. I set it on the front of my card and it looked too large. So I grabbed another scrap piece of the glitter paper and die cut a I cut a 1-3/8" circle and the ring cut for the center I used the 1-1/8" circle die. I thought it was just a bit too small. It was okay but it wasn't appealing to me, so I decided to use both. I had used a double sided sticky sheet to make them so they could be stickers and be set in place easy. I could have glued them too. The Tombow Mono glue is perfect for this. 

I took a scrap piece of the glitter paper and die cut a snowman using the die from the "So Many Snowflakes" die set. I added a Dimensional to the back of it and set it in place on the rings.

I colored a crystal rhinestone using my Balmy Blue Blends pen and set it in place on the center of the snowflake. 

I set the piece in place on the card base using Dimensionals and the card was done.

This was a very quick and easy Christmas card to make. And I do like the double rings.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's Christmas card,
