Theme Challenge ... Dress Up!

Hello everyone and a special hello if you found me at the Paper Cabana... If you haven't been there go get inspired right here!

Today we are playing DRESS UP!  I am dressing up Christmas Cards with my new Create a Critter 2 cartridge!!!!

They started like this being designed on my Gypsy ... check out that post here!
Then I cut out all the elements as below!

 Then I dressed that card right up and made it BEAUTIFUL!
 I used my Xyron sticker maker 5" to get adhesive on the joy and the wreath... stuck them in place on my window card that was made on my gypsy for my cricut like in this post.
After the layers were glued together I embellished with stickles and diamond dust.  Look how the diamond dust stuck to the wreath.. it looks adorned in snow!  I added wet embossing to the joy with snowflake pattern and dry embossing then inked the wreath with some CTMH New England Ivy!

Hope this card inspires you to make some for those close to you this year!  Everyone loves a nice Holiday card!  :)

May the Joy of the Season be with you as you show us your dressed up items ;)
