CardzTV Stamps Challenge # 20 "To Die For!"

If you are looking for Digi Haven Challenge "Christmas", click here (after 5 am EST).

This is the challenge at CardzTV this week..."To Die For!" Now that sounds pretty bad, doesn't it? lol Actually, please create a project for Christmas that uses die cuts from your manual or electronic cutting machine. Mary has a set of stamps for the winner of the challenge. (Runs from Nov 30th - Dec 6th).

I made a card:

Another angle:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Burgundy, Green and 4 Different Patterned Paper
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps Christmas Joy, "Do Not Open 'Til Christmas!"
Sizzix Sizzlits Medium Die Cuts Party Set (Present)
Queen and Co Pearls, Pearl 1 Small, Grass Green 1 Small, Classy Red 1 Small and Berry Red 1 Small
Green Pigment Ink
Mounting Tape
Small Hole Punch

I think the sentiment is just perfect for this card...don't you? I cut out the present 4 times then mixed up the bows between the four of them. The two on the outside are glued to the background, the second present (as you are looking at the card) is single mounted and the last one is double mounted. The sentiment is glued to the angled paper (with 2 small hole punches) and then is single mounted. The green dotted background is also single mounted on the card.  I like having dimension on my cards...can you tell?

I also made another project using die cuts (just no "written"'ll understand when you see it). I made this for my granddaughter, Gianna. I hope she likes it.

A little closer:

Finished Project: 8 1/2" x 13 1/2" x 1 3/4"

Karen Foster Design Countdown Calendar (comes with countdown sticker numbers)
Cricut Cartridge Paper Doll Dress Up Body, page 29 (Shift); Santa, page 72 (Base, Shift, Headwear Shift, Accessories 1 Shift and Accessories 3 Shift)
Various Scrap Cardstock
Small Circle Punch
Mounting Tape (for nose)
Cotton Ball

I attached the Santa to the back of the box set with removable tape (this way I can always take him off if I want to turn the boxes around and use it for something else). I can't wait until she sees this. I'm sure she'll love getting the candy prizes. What do you think?

Don't forget to enter the could win one of Mary's stamps. There are so many to choose from, it may be hard to decide. Good luck to everyone.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you liked my card and countdown project. Please leave comment.
