Suede Snow Christmas

Hi friends!  I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving with your families.  We had a great time!  Now it's time to get serious about Christmas, and I've got a warm snowy card to share with you today.

I started with a brown card base and I cut a layer from vanilla cardstock. I sponged the edges of the vanilla paper first with some brown ink and then I adhered this to my card base. Next was a smaller layer of brown cardstock and I cut some Kraft cardstock slightly smaller. The Kraft cardstock was sponged with brown ink and then adhered to the brown cardstock layer.

Next, I cut my snowflakes. I used the Snowflake Edger die (Cheery Lynn Designs) for the tiny little snowflakes. Look at the edger die and see where the tiny little snowflakes are cut out from the border? I saved those little snowflakes and set the Edger die cut aside for another use. I also used the Snowflowers Set 1 and Snowflowers Set 2 (Cheery Lynn Designs) for the three larger snowflakes. The Quickie Glue Pen is perfect for adhering these tiny and intricate snowflakes.

With the snowflakes in place, I cut a small strip of vanilla cardstock and sponged the edges. Then I used the Merry Christmas die (Cheery Lynn Designs) to cut out my sentiment. I used the smaller set and the Quickie Glue Pen to carefully adhere this to my vanilla strip. Then this sentiment strip was adhered to my card with Joy Foam Pads.

I know you want to add these dies to your collection, so please feel free to use this code, Holly-10, when you shop at Classy Cards 'n Such.  I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
