Card Design: Countdown to Christmas with Nicecrane Designs, Day 4
Happy Wednesday to you all!  I'm back today with another creation showcasing an image from the beautiful vintage set called A Happy Xmas by Bowley, available over at Nicecrane Designs

Yesterday, I showed you the first of five cards created for my momma as part of her Christmas gift (click HERE if you missed it, and would like to check it out).  Today it is number two and then each day for the next three days, I'll show you the remaining ones in the set.  I think this one is my favourite, there is just something so rich about that red colour.
Digital Image Details:
  • A Happy Xmas by Bowley:  This card features the image in the middle of the preview below.  Click on the watermark below to take you to its location in the store.
Embossing Folder:
  • The red panel on top was embossed using one of four folders available in the Cricut, Paper Lace II set.  
  • The half pearls are Crafts brand and were purchased at Dollarama.

Digital Sentiments:
  • These fabulous sentiments were created by Paulette from Create with TLC.  While I picked each up a while back as a freebie, you can purchase them from the store.  You can find the sentiment from the front of my card in the Miscellaneous Christmas Goodies set.  The sentiment on the inside of my card is available in the Christmas Peace 2 Vintage Images and Word Art set.  I've linked the two watermarks below to go to their respective 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, Shades of Red 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 are into kittens and puppies, then this is the set for you.
The Kittens and Puppies on Xmas set contains two collage sheets containing a total of 10 adorable images.  Be sure to go and check it out while you are at the store (click on image below to head to its location).
Remember, 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 third card in the set and if I am lucky, I'll be back a little later this evening with one of my progressive posts and possible even a promo post.  Man, there is still SOOOO much I have to get done before I can take a much needed break.  Here's hoping I can pull it all off.

Until a bit later,
