"To Die For!" Cardz TV Stamps Challenge #20

Happy Friday my crafty friends and welcome to the "To Die For!" Cardz TV Stamps Challenge #20!  Our wonderful Mary over at gave us a challenge to create a card, layout, or other craft project using die cuts from a manual machine or our Cricut.  I recently had purchased the A Quilted Christmas cartridge and had to try it out.  I found this cute image on there and knew Mary's stamps would be perfect for it.  Mary has a new set of Christmas stamps in the Cardz TV Stamps Store called "Christmas Joy."  This is a really cute set filled with wonderful sayings for the holiday.  I hope you check them out because they are wonderful!  They are perfect for cards!

This card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  The patterned paper came from a DCWV Christmas mat stack.  It was cut out at 4 x 5 1/4.  I love this paper!  The image was cut out at 3 1/4 inches.  For the holly leaves on the mantle, it cuts out these tiny little berries.  There was no way I was going to cut them out.  I used a glue pen and some extra fine glitter I found at Michaels.  The little stockings were cut using a mini Studio G punch.  I used a white gel pen on the top.  For the candles, I used a gold gel pen for the flame.  At the top I used a mini Studio G punch for the holly leaves and some more of the fine glitter for the berries.  

Now it's your turn!  All you have to do is create a card, layout, or other craft project using die cuts from a manual machine or your Cricut.  Sounds fun right?  You have until Noon EST December 6th, 2012 to enter. Once you've completed your project, head on over to Mary's Blog and enter a link to your project into Mr. Linky.  She will be giving away a set of her awesome stamps.  I can't wait to see what you create!   I hope you stop by the blog's of my Design Team Sisters to see what awesome projects they have made.

I will be posting more cards I have been working on starting Sunday.  I just love making Christmas cards!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  Hope you come back real soon!

Lots of Hugs,
