First Christmas Card

I have been seeing a lot of ladies starting their Christmas cards and I keep thinking I need to do that but I am usually close or behind in my Birthday card making that I don't get around to it, but since I received my copy of Quick Cards in the mail on Friday (British card magazine) I decided to give this a go first.  In every issue of this magazine you get either stamps, papers die cuts free with every issue and this past issue it had Christmas papers and decoupage papers.  If you are interested in these magazines I found them at Barnes and Nobles, I started getting mine in the mail because it was cheaper to do so.

There are 5 layers of images to layer on top of one another so I used EK success 1/16" dimensional adhesives for this project.

Somebunny to Love Decoupage and paper pad set
DCWV-- Cardstock
Spellbinders --- Decorative Labels One
Martha Stewart -- Snowflake punch
Tim Holtz -- Crinkle Ribbon (colored with Tumbled Glass distress ink)
Forever in Time -- Button (colored w/ marker to match the blue)

Here is a side view so you can see the different layers.  I don't know if I will be sending this through the mail or hand delivering yet, so I didn't put any kind of sentiment on it since I don't know who I will be giving it to.  This card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2".

Hopefully I can make the time to get more cards done and post more frequently, I was shocked to see the last time I posted was last Thursday, how the days just seem to fly by, wonder if it will be any different in the winter. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
Have a terrific week,
