Dies R Us Gold Christmas

Dies R Us Dies

Good Morning!  I'm back today sharing a new card inspired by the new challenge starting today at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  The theme is Christmas.  I was inspired by White Christmas but I ended up adding in some gold.  I guess my card is more of a monochromatic Christmas.  

I began with a cream 5.5 inch card and then layered a piece of design paper on top.  I cut a large circle out of the design paper with a Cheery Lynn Circle Stacker Set.  Then I glued a white scalloped ring to the front of the design paper.  I used the Cheery Lynn Horizon Boutique Circle and then cut the center out with the same circle from the Circle Stacker Set to form the ring.  

Before gluing down the design paper I played around with my Winter Neighborhood Border that I cut with a gold glitter paper.  I positioned it so all three houses would show through.  I cut a rounded piece of the same glitter paper and glued it in front of the border strip so the houses could be centered in the circle.  

Last to add a little more glitz I used a snowflake from the Cheery Lynn Snowflake Set 2 and glued it on top.  This kind of design would work well as a shaker card too but I was afraid the plastic would obscure the sparkle of the glitter paper.  

Thanks for stopping by today and make sure to submit your holiday project to the new Christmas challenge at Dies R Us for a chance to win a gift card to the store!
