Hello and welcome...
The first Christmas card of 2017!  I will post 'Festive Friday' right up to 22 December and that way you shouldn't be too tired seeing them... I hope! lol

There may also be one or two for the Saturday Give-Away card

I started with a 15cm square red card base.  I already had white card embossed from a previous make so I used that (this is another good way of using your 'left-over' card stock) to give me 4 x 7cm squares

I then cut another 6.5cm squares 4 times in red.  The final white squares, measuring 6cm are in white card and I punched all the corners using a small round corner punch

The snowflake die was die cut and embossed on white card and I sprayed adhesive over it and covered it with Glitter Jewels in Diamond Snow.  The wreath was die cut and embossed on green patterned paper and I added tiny red gems around it
Card insert
The stockings were also die cut and embossed on red card stock and I added Diamond Stickles to the tops and below the stockings

For the bauble I only added a little 'dot' of Diamond Sprinkles to the middle of the bow

On two opposites squares I ran Diamond Sprinkles all around the edge of the white card

I added a Christmas paper for the card insert and also rounded the corners on that then die cut and embossed the 'Season's Greetings', sprayed it with adhesive and covered it with Glitter Jewels again in Diamond Snow

I hope to see you tomorrow when we have our SATURDAY SPECIAL - CARD GIVE~AWAY
