Ready For Santa

Here is my card posted for our 
using the inspiration photo below!


Hello Classy friends!!!
Diane with you today with my last Christmas card
for "Classy Cards 'n Such" this year!
Sounds funny hearing that doesn't it and rather hard to believe
another year has almost come to an end!

But, at least today I can share a fun Christmas card!
I could of kept adding and adding to this card, but had to stop somewhere..lol!


I made a 5" square card and wanted a "wallpaper" look for my background,
so I chose paper from KaiserCraft On This Day 6 1/2" paper pad.
I love how this particular piece resembles wallpaper!

The fireplace was cut using the Classic Brick Fireplace from PoppyStamps.
Before I removed the die cut I used a few TH Distress Inks on the brick and mantel.
There are a few options for the fireplace inserts.
Because I didn't want poor Mr. Claus to get burned, I opted for the Fireplace Logs.
I backed the fireplace with a piece of black card stock to resemble the soot usually
seen in a real fireplace.

The adorable tiny stockings are Tiny Stockings by Memory Box.
The Christmas tree is the largest one from  Impression Obsession Fir Trees.
I added sequins to act as Christmas balls.
Did you know you can cut your own sequins using My Favorite Things Sequin Die?
This die cuts four sizes, I use it all the time.
The perfect material to use for the sequins is the Iris Sampler pack of Shimmer Sheetz.
