The Blog Hop Order is located at the bottom of my post.  Scroll on down, enjoy the card samples, and hop to see more inspiration.

My cards feature dies from A Sweet Christmas by Sharyn Sowell.

I created two cards that use the following dies: 

This is the first card.  I thought the Mistletoe Gatefold die made a beautiful festive flap fold type card.  I layered a green die cut under the gold for shadowing to make the Mistletoe Gatefold die pop.  
When the card is opened, a  warm surprise awaits.  

Here's a quick video




This is the inside of the card featuring Spellbinders Hanging Stocking Die from A Sweet Christmas Collection by Sharyn Sowell.  I have once again layered the dies for a bolder effect.  



This is the second card.  I decided to use the Spellbinders Mistletoe Gatefold from A Sweet Christmas Collection by Sharyn Sowell as a border on this card.  I cut the die from cream colored cardstock and enhanced with inks and mist.  


Thanks for stopping here as you hop through the blog order.  I value your time and you comments.
