Guest Design for Tammy's Scrappin Corner and IBSIC #37

It's definitely "Beginning to look a lot like Christmas" around here, especially on my craft table!  This week I was invited by Tammy of  Tammy's Scrapping Corner,, to be a Guest Designer!  The theme 
this week is # 39 Anything Christmas,  be sure to stop by and join in on the fun!

Here is my card using an image from A Day for Daisies called "Warm in Winter" 

I colored the image in with my colored pencils, added Martha Stewart snow glitter, and set it behind a new Spellbinders Shapabilities Die D-Lites Window Two die.  I just adore this die since it is interactive with the windows that open!  The window was cut from Tim Holtz core'denations Kraft-Core, sanded, edges distressed and then inked  with Distress Stain in Tarnished Brass.  A small piece of vellumn was placed behind the decorative swirls.  The background paper is from the Recollections Frosty Cabin Paper Pad.
I used paper from a new DCWV "The First Noel" nativity stack, it's full of really beautiful nativity images and complementary papers.  I cut it out with Nestabilities Label 28 die and a Spellbinders Shapabilities "Fancy Framed Tags Two" tag that allows you to cut a matching shape for you to stamp your sentiment onto (clear stamp from my stash).  I embellished everything with pearls, TH Distress Sticlkes dry glitter, swirls of bling and more Tarnished brass stain, and a Sakura Gelly Roll pen in Clear Star.  The roses were embellished with more glitter, sprays, and Stickles to really make them sing "Chrisrmas".

Here's the inside:

Stamps used:  all Recollections, Archival Ink in Vermillion and  Olive
