Evergreen Window Stands Tall

Hello friends.

I had done this card a while back and liked it so much that I decided to
use it for one of my Christmas card classes.

One of the gals had her card this way to cut and I liked the way it turned out.
So I CASEd her.  Sometimes we have those happy accidents!

I stamped the sentiment crooked. What a surprise!
So I stamped again on a snippet and put some Dazzling Details 
around it to cover the boo boo.  

I added some sparkle to the trees and sky while I was at it.

I'm going to take this over to 
Thank you Mo for hosting this challenge each month!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoyed making this type of card in your class. Like how you turned it other direction and added the bling....easy and good-looking card for those last minute needs(!)

Bobby said...

This is lovely with all the glittery snow, Bonnie. The popped up sentiment looks like you planned it that way.

Susan said...

Great card with one of my favourite dies! Lovely sky behind it!

Loll said...

Awesome design, Bonnie! I love this die (had to buy one for myself!). The dazzling diamonds adds lots of sparkle to that beautiful sky. xx

I've seen some really stunning cards made with white die cuts and blue backgrounds. Everyone is one the same wavelength, except for me since I have an urge to make beach cards... LOL! Your card is fabulous!

Hi Bonnie,
Happy Rudolf Days.
what a very wonderful card and such a gorgeous background too.
Thanks for joining the Rudolf Challenge.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

JoAnn said...

Very pretty. Love the background.

Ina Grehan said...

Simple and fabulous Bonnie. Love the background, the bling on the trees and around your sentiment is a great touch making your card pop just that little bit more. Always nice when we can 'hide' a booboo.

A super CAS card, great background and die.

This is such a beautiful blue backdrop for you white die cut! I too love this one. Stamping straight is the hardest thing in the world, isn't it? Doesn't take much and Bam, it's off! Great job covering it!

I am having a giggle as I always stamp crooked. I got the Misti to help me but it is only good with the thinner stamps. The wood ones (which are the vast majority of my stamps do not fit.

Love the die cut rectangle's horizontal aspect and the pretty winter scene. looks like Brusho's for the background...simply fabulous!

Thanks for taking part in the November Rudolph Days Challenge.
