Christmas Bling with Sweet Stamps

Sweet Stamps Challenge:

Christmas Bling

Make sure to join us on the Sweet Stamps blog, we'd love to see what you create. You have a chance at winning $20 to purchase some "sweet" things of your own!! There's plenty of wonderful things to choose from!

Here's the card I created:
I created a fun gate-fold card for this challenge.  For the front sentiment I used "Look Like Christmas", which has to be one of my favorite holiday sentiments!  I guess I just love decorating for Christmas and love all the lights!  It is kind of hard to tell and I couldn't get the greatest picture, put the paper I used the sentiment on was first stamped with some VersaMark using the "Tiny Snowflake Background".  The tree on the front is a fun die! It's by Nellie's Multi Frame's and is called "Christmas Tree Multi Frame Dies'.  You get two trees, an ornament and star dies.

I really like it because I love being able to BLING it up!  I used some Silver rhinestones on the tree to act as ornaments or lights.  The red garland is actually white thread that I covered with Creative Inspiration Paints "Rustic Red" to make red and to add shimmer to.  I used CI Paint "Gold" on the star on top of the tree.

I used "Merry Christmas Script" for the inside sentiment. And also stamped the outlined ornament from the "Ornament Silhouette and Outline Duo" set.

I then used CI Paints "Rustic Red" and "Silver Frost" to add shimmer to the ornament!
Lastly, I finished off the card, by adding "Lippy Red" and "Mint Green" rhinestones!

Have a wonderful day!

Really cute layout on your card. The different papers go well together and the ribbon and rhinestones really add the finishing touch.
