The Carols of Christmas bundle helps to create beautiful wintery scenes like the dazzling peaceful night on the cards I'm sharing today! These cards are part of my September Countdown To Christmas class!
Only 2 Days To Register! Don't wait on starting those Christmas cards! My annual Countdown To Christmas class series will help you create your cards a little at a time, so you're not trying to get them all done at the last minute. I'll have all the prep work done for you—just stamp & assemble! Plus, you'll have stamps & leftover embellishments that you can use for many more holiday projects!

I think these cards are my favorite design from the Countdown To Christmas Carols of Christmas class! I love all of the glittery elements that give it the feel of a snowy winter's night!
Background Basics—The 3-3/4"x 5" Soft Sky background was die-cut with the Card Front Builder Thinlits. I layered that over a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to create a starry, moonlight night. It's mounted onto a Dapper Denim card base.
Peaceful Focal Point—I stamped the Carols of Christmas greeting in Dapper Denim onto a large Stitched Shapes circle die-cut. I also die-cut a Dazzling Diamonds Layering Circles scalloped circle to layer underneath. The Glimmer Paper is adhered with Tear & Tape and the greeting is popped up with Dimensionals over the top. I finished off the focal point with a small Dapper Denim Baker's Twine bow, adhered with a pinched Glue Dot.
Twinkling Trees—I die-cut the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper trees with the Card Front Builder Thinlits. I found that they cut easier if I turned the Glimmer Paper dazzle-side-down on the cutting plate. They are popped up with Dimensionals.
Dear Deer—I stamped the Carols of Christmas deer in Dapper Denim onto Whisper White card stock, then cut him out with the coordinating dies from the Card Front Builder Thinlits. I can't tell if he is looking at me, or at twinkling sky! I used the Mini Dimensionals to pop him up, too.
Two Cool—We'll be creating two cards in the Dapper Denim card base and two cards with the Pool Party card base. All the rest of the elements are identical.
