Merry Christmas and thank you for visiting my blog today...hope you and your family & loved ones have a lot of  happy times this holiday season...the cards I'm sharing today are my personal favorites...the box card took a while to plan and create but it was absolutely worth the effort...and I just love the little girl on my second card...

I started by using the Lawn Fawn box card dies and watercolour cardstock to create the base of my box card as I had planned to use lots of Distress Oxide inks to create the inside background...on the outside I simply stamped snowflakes all over using blue ink....I also used Distress Oxide inks on the outside panels of my card..

I used the Lawn Fawn Winter village stamp and dies for the village scene on the inside....I have coloured in the images using Prismacolor pencils and then adhered them onto the hilly panels...these panels are from the shadow box die set but I thought they were perfect for this card...

I added a few images on the side flaps and the sentiment on the front flap as well as another on on the front of the card it's folded....and to add a bit of shimmer to the night sky background.I added some tiny flat silver sequins near the moon image...

The little girl image I have used in my second card is from a birthday stamp set from MFT called Happy Birthday To You but I have repurposed it for a Christmas card...I first created the background on a white front panel using Distress Inks and then used a die to emboss the pattern on it..I also splattered some water for effect...

I adhered this panel to a white card base and die cut the word Merry from gold glitter cardstock as well as a small white banner to heat emboss the word Christmas using gold embossing powder...I stamped and coloured in the girl and dog images and adhered them to my card front and then added the die cut sentiment as well...
