Christmas Cross

     One of the loveliest sets I've seen at Deedee's Digis is her Seasonal Crosses and I chose to use the one for Christmas on this card.  There's also one for Spring/Easter, one good for fall, and one for summer.  I love them all.  (See photo at the bottom of this post.)


     The image I used is pre-colored but the set comes with both pre-colored and outline images for each season.  I fussy cut the cross and layered it onto a die cut (from a scrap in the throw away pile!) from Spellbinders.  Although it doesn't show up well in the photo, the gold CS is very sparkly.

     I adhered the sentiment onto a tiny scrap piece of the gold CS left over from doing the larger die cut.  I used some of the negative curls and added them to the sentiment piece. The white snowflake was also die cut (Memory Box) from a scrap of shimmery white CS.

     This is probably the last of my cards for Deedee's Digis.  Since the shop is closing in another couple of weeks (at the end of the year), I won't be doing any more DT cards for Deedee.  That doesn't mean I won't be using any of her digis.  I love the precious style of her images and have a huge collection which I've built over the years.  I'll be using those on many projects in the future, especially at Christmas and Easter.

     Remember, all the images in her shop are 75% off between now and the time the shop closes.   That means every single set is under a dollar!   Don't miss out -- get over there and shop 'til you drop.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Lovely in so many ways! I especially like the hopefulness of the sheep, and the reminder that it is during our "nights" we find our Dear One, or during our times of quiet (like the snowy woods in winter) where we discover His Wonderful Essence. Gorgeous!

Oh! And before I forget - Thanks for playing in the {Scrapy Land Challenge}! Hope to see your pretty projects again soon!
