Card Design: Countdown to Christmas with Nicecrane Designs, Day 5
Greetings to you on this Thursday, exactly one week before Christmas.  My Christmas Panic is in full swing gaining momentum as each hour goes by.  I have no shopping done, have no decorations up, and no idea what we'll be having for dinner.  Oy vey!  It is going to be one BUSY week.  For right now, I'm back to share another creation showcasing an image from the beautiful vintage set called A Happy Xmas by Bowley, available over at Nicecrane Designs

Over the last two days you've seen the first two 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 and HERE for the second).  Today it is time to show you number three and then there are just two left to go over the next couple days.
Digital Image Details:
  • A Happy Xmas by Bowley:  This card features the image on the bottom right hand side of the preview below.  Click on the watermark below to take you to its location in the store.
Digital Sentiments:
  • This amazing sentiment is part of a set of Primitive Christmas blocks that I picked up over at Create with TLC.  I used the 'believe' one on my DS4J/Doodle Pantry card in November.  As I mentioned at that time, 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 blue 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: 
  • Another great sentiment from Mudmaven.  Don't forget to check out her blog for many awesome freebies. 
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, Cool Water collection.
Challenges I am hoping to enter...

Before I go...
Time to share another great Christmas themed set available at Nicecrane's Designs.  This lovely set focuses on vintage pictures of women ready for the holiday season. 
The Vintage Women's Christmas 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).

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 fourth card in the set and if I am lucky, I'll be back a little later this evening with the last of my progressive posts and hopefully even a promo post since I didn't get it done last night.  Time to check one more thing off the list!

Until a bit later,
