Card Design: Countdown to Christmas with Nicecrane Designs, Day 3


Happy Tuesday to you all!  With Christmas fast approaching (I can't believe there is just a little over a week left), it is time to get this show on the road!  Each day over the next five days, I will be showing you a card I made from the beautiful vintage set called A Happy Xmas by Bowley, available over at Nicecrane Designs

This card, along with the four other ones I'll be showcasing over the rest of this week, are part of a set that I have created for my momma as part of her Christmas gift for THIS year.  My mother adores vintage images, so I am hoping that she'll like them.  Knowing her, she probably didn't send out the ones I made for her last year, wanting to keep them all for herself!
Digital Image Details:
  • A Happy Xmas by Bowley:  This card features the image on the top right hand side of the preview below.  Click on the watermark below to take you to its location in the store. 
Digital Sentiment Details:
  • The sentiment used on the front of the card is one of my own.  You can still find it available for free by clicking HERE.  Please note that since this sentiment was created using an element from another artist who is strictly PUO (although I did receive permission to incorporate her images in my own work and offer them as freebies), you would be unable to use it on a card that you intend to sell.  
Embossing Folder:
  • The pink 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 Sentiment:
  • This wonderful sentiment was created by Paulette from Create with TLC.  While I picked it up a while back as a freebie, you can purchase it in the Happy Happy Joy Joy Word Art Set OR in the Joy, Joy, Joy Digi Image Set.  I've linked the two watermarks below to go to their location in the store.  For great freebies and inspiration be sure to click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and to see more awesome sets available for sale, click HERE to go to the home page of the store.
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, Pink Buttons collection.
Challenges I am hoping to enter...
Before I go...
Time to share another great Christmas themed set available at Nicecrane's Designs.  If you prefer to colour your images yourself but really like the images in the set I showcased above, then you'll want to check out the digital stamp version of
A Happy Xmas by Bowley DSL.  This set has the same five images but allows you to colour them as you wish.  Be sure to go and check it out while you are at the store (click on image below to head to its location).
Don't forget, 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.

I am so happy that you had a chance to pop by and check out my latest creation.  I'll be back tomorrow with the second card in the set and at least one other post. 

 Until that time,
