Merry Christmas

Hello everyone!
Have a beautiful day!
  I decided to make a Christmas card since it is just around the corner.  I created a little winter scene with my stamps.
This time I also choose a BINGO theme at
For this challenge  I am using the NINE items from 2nd row and p column (6+ buttons, handwritten journal, distressed edges, Tags from the row and flowers, gemstones, black & white photo matting, Bling/glitter from the column P). And also inspired by silver color theme.

I enjoyed so much to put all these elements in my creation!!! So here is my project.........

One more bright picture
I love this stamp set, really adorable and cute. I embossed the white CS. For this one I cut a large circle using the Spellbinders Nestabilities decorative elements, topped that off with my polar bear snow scene I made the sliver mirri "picture frame" as a snippet for it ,with an embossed circle inside.
 I stamped the image using jet black archival ink, fussy cut and torn the base for snowy banks. Instead of coloring the image I added stickles to show them as snowy polar bears, put glossy accents to the eyes and added diamond Dust for the snow, popped up the images for dimension. Matted on the PP and a border from Do Craft -Daisy and Penelope & Percy A4 paper pack.

I don't have an icicles die cut and got an idea to make it using my hot glue gun. I randomly placed the glue on an acetate sheet, added the glitter dust and removed it from the sheet and ......tada .....done easily:)
I distressed the edges of this metal flower.
Created the Christmas tree by adding corrugated sheets and some cotton snow with silver stickles on it, tied a velvet ribbon bow and added it with foam dots.
Added a Christmas Lace to create lots of texture and dimension.
Added the sentiment tags from the same stamp set and  a perfect match for this scene.

This one remind minds me so much of ice and snow and sparkly winter things. I embellish with flower gemstones , rhinestone, bling and a enamel pink colored heart.
 The inside of this card says:
I journaling the inside matter and layout a photo of my daughter. Merry X-Mas letters are the die cuts and added buttons too. I will mail this card as a surprise to her before Christmas!
 Hope you enjoyed this creation in Non Traditional colors!

Supplies used:
Stamp set from Hot of the press
Embossed folder Spots from Itsy Bitsy
Spellbinder  Shapeabilities Back to basic tags
Upper Alphabet et from Memory box
Picked Raspberry Distressed ink

Your card is incredible! I agree, it's never too early to start making holiday cards.

I loved the icicles...You did such a good job that I couldn't figure out how you did it until I read through your blog. Amazing! I will definitely try that trick with hot glue, thank you!

Great card and whomever receives it will surely enjoy it,
