Card Design: Countdown to Christmas with Nicecrane Designs, Day 7
Greetings to you on this Saturday! Is your weekend going to be filled to the brim with doing last minute things to get ready for the big guy's arrival?  I know mine will.  First I'm going to start with sharing the final card featuring an image from the beautiful vintage set called A Happy Xmas by Bowley, available over at Nicecrane Designs

Over the last several days you've seen the first four 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, HERE for the third, and HERE for the fourth).  Today it is time to show you the fifth and final card in the set.

General Information:
  • When I chose the sentiment for the inside of this card, I hesitated but then thought, 'no it is 2014, it is fine'.  Of course, sitting back I have now realized why I hesitated.  It might be 2014 this year but it won't be next year when she actually sends this card to someone.  So, sometime in the next week, I need to get creative and find a way to add a new sentiment to the inside without it looking strange.  Wish me luck!

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 purple 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:
  • These beautiful sentiments were once again, both created by Paulette from Create with TLC and both picked up as freebies.  For more great freebies and inspiration be sure to click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and to see some 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, Soda Pop collection.
Challenges I am hoping to enter...

Before I go...
Time to share one more great Christmas themed set available at Nicecrane's Designs.  This particular set includes ready to go ornaments that you just need to print, fold and glue.  I made one for my momma last year using a different image and I'd really like to work with images available in this set too.  Hopefully next year.
The Christmas Ornament Pack set contains three ornaments to provide you with a bit of variety.  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'm not exactly sure when I'll be back next, I do still have at least two cards that need to be made and I'm trying to get some decorations done as well.  Then I also have a special 12 Days of Christmas treasure hunt planned and I'm hoping that I can pull it off.  So, while I'm not exactly sure which day I'll be back, I'll definitely be back soon.

Until then, I hope that you are all getting some time to spend with family and friends.  That is one of the wonderful things about the holidays--being with the people we love, and those we don't get to see very often.

Take care until we meet up again,
