I have created two cards this month that is a spin off to my Countdown to Christmas.  I took day 14, made a standard A2 card and changed the background paper and added holly leaves.   I used Papertrey products Fairy Tale Christmas, Silver White Winters Die, Phrase Play #9 Die and Enclosed Bell Mini Stamp and Die.

 The sentiment is embossed with Wow Embossing Powder, bright white.  These detailed snowflakes and flying Santa are covered with Tim Holtz distress sticklers dry glitter, clear rock candy and the holly berries have Christmas red sticklers on them.

Next I used day 21 and again changed the background paper and made the card the standard A2 size.
This stamp set is also from Papertrey, using Fairy Tale Christmas Stamp kit and In the Meadow die.  I kept the added detail simple on this card using the Christmas red stickles on all the berries. Seeing these children is what sold me on this beautiful kit!

A Thank You to Kelly for allowing me to be part of her Keeping Christmas Blog Hop! Please enjoy the hop and leave some love to Kelly and the team members.

I hope everyone has a healthy, safe and joyous Christmas Season!
See you again in January!
