Dreaming Of A White Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
so much so that our theme being hosted by Team Diane is
Dreaming of a White Christmas and using the mood board
I created below.

I don't know where you live, but it sure looks like we are
going to have a white Christmas here in Michigan.
Not only white but very cold...brrrrr!

I made my card with a new die I purchased.
It is from X-Cut and one of  their 'shadowbox' dies.
The dies come with 4 layers and you just keep stacking
them one on top of the other.
I popped each layer up on mine.
It takes a bit to get the hang of it
(which I haven't
but practice makes perfect as they say.

This die is intended to make the cuts in 4 shades of green,
which will be my next one I make.

The stag head you see also comes with the die
as well as a flying eagle, which I haven't used this time.
I covered the stag head in glue, then sprinkled
Sparkle N Sprinkle  Twinkling Clouds on.

Make sure and head on over to the
Double D Challenge and see what
the design teams have to  show you,
as usual they have once again done a FABULOUS job!!

Entering the following challenges:
Scrapy Land .... ATG

WOW what a unique die and this is awesome! Can't wait to see it done up in other colors! LOVE what you've put together ... fantastic scene! AWESOME!

Beautiful card. Love all the layers and the white on white. I have had my eye on several of the X cut dies like this. Question.... Could the top layer be covered with acetate to make a shaker card?

YOWZA! I love the all white theme and all of your FABULOUS layers, that die and your craftiness is AHMAZING! The snowy trees and the white boughs sure put a frosty spin on the Holiday! That stag is awesome, we actually had 3 deer run through our yard today, a mama and 2 babies, a first for us!

Wow! That's SOME die set and what an awesome result! Even if it wasn't popped up it would look amazing. You know I'm going to have to go check this out now, and I told myself I wasn't getting any new dies for a while. It looks fabulous in white and I can just imagine the green, too. Can't wait to see that one as well. Totally gorgeous, Diane!
