Card Design: Countdown to Christmas with Nicecrane Designs, Day 6
Greetings to you on this Friday evening! Today starts the last weekend to get ready for Christmas!  I wish you all lots of luck with your plans and endeavours.  

Today, I'm back to share card number four showcasing an image from the beautiful vintage set called A Happy Xmas by Bowley, available over at Nicecrane Designs

Over the last few days you've seen the first three cards I created for my momma as part of her Christmas gift (if you missed them and would like to check them out, click HERE for the first, HERE for the second, and HERE for the third).  Today it is time to show you number four and then there will be just one left to go tomorrow.

Digital Image Details:
  • A Happy Xmas by Bowley:  This card features the image on the top left hand side of the preview below.  Click on the watermark below to take you to its location in the store.
Digital Sentiment: 
  • Once again I have used one of the sentiments that are part of a set of Primitive Christmas blocks that I picked up over at Create with TLC.  This will be the third one I've used from that set in the past month.  They are just wonderful images, perfect for seasonal cards.  As I have previously mentioned, this set is still available for free.  Click HERE to go and grab them but make sure that you leave Paulette some love if you do.  For other great finds, be sure to click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and HERE to go to the store.
Embossing Folder:
  • The green panel on top was embossed using the one of the folders from the Cricut, Paper Lace II set.  
  • The half pearls are Crafts brand and were purchased at Dollarama.

Digital Sentiments: 
  • This sentiment is also from Create with TLC.  I picked it up as a freebie a long time ago.  General links to the store and blog can be found above.

Paper Products:
  • Card, image and sentiment base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
  • The paper used for the embossed panel on the front and the matting on the inside are from the Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, Soda Pop collection.
Challenges I am hoping to enter...

Before I go...
Time to share another great Christmas themed set available at Nicecrane's Designs.  This particular set focuses on vintage pictures of children all set for the holiday season. 
The Vintage Christmas & Children set contains three collage sheets containing a total of 24 images from original vintage Christmas cards.  Be sure to go and check it out while you are at the store (click on image below to head to its location).
As always, to stay current on ALL the latest releases and to check out the fabulous inspiration from my fellow DT members, be sure to head over to the Nicecrane Designs blog.

Thanks for popping in and checking my latest creation.  I'll be back tomorrow with the final card in the set.  Now it is time to work on some upcoming posts for The 12 Months of Christmas that start coming out on Sunday. 

See you again tomorrow as the Christmas countdown continues!
