Merry Christmas for The Outlawz!

Hi friends! Well, I’m back on this fine Thursday morning posting another card for The Outlawz Challenges! I just couldn’t stay away, lol! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’m entering this Christmas card into the Festive Fridays Challenge where SheepSki Designs is our sponsor this fortnight, so come on over and play! I CASE’d my own card from several months ago – used the same dies and papers but created a totally different design. These dies and papers really work well together!

I cut a square top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock and diagonally-cut patterned paper and glitter paper pieces from the Christmas Print 6×6 paper pad which I adhered to the red cardstock panel with a narrow strip of red cardstock adhered at the seam. Using the Birch Press Design Wreath Layer Set, I cut the pieces from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Green cardstock and CutCardStock Canvas Texture Galax 4×6 cardstock, and assembled the wreath. Using the Sizzix Christmas Ribbon Thinlits, I die cut one sentiment from CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock and one from CutCardStock Canvas Texture Galax 4×6 cardstock, and adhered them together with just a peek of the green showing underneath the red. I adhered the wreath to the card front and then the sentiment. I added clear rhinestones to the wreath along with a ribbon bow to complete the card front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock and the patterned paper and glitter paper from the Christmas Print 6×6 paper pad. I stamped the sentiment in dark green ink and layered the panel on red cardstock.

And one more look… I really love both of these die sets and see lots of use out of them in the coming years!
