Hello friends! It's Debbie, for this afternoon's post. This is my first Christmas card for this year, that I did not make from a kit.

This card quickly came together. The only thing I can say is, whatever you do, avoid sticking your fingers in wet Stickles. I cannot tell you how many times, I messed up a spot with a finger, and had to add more stickles to the open spots. Lesson learned, the messy way!

I started my card with a medium blue card stock. Then, using the Braided Vines embossing folder, by Sue Wilson, I used a white ink pad and applied it to the front of the embossing folder.

Once I applied the card stock to the white base card, next was to die cut the Joy - Festive Collection and Delicate Fronds dies, also by Sue Wilson. The Joy - Festive Collection is two dies. I added Stickles to all the open areas of the die. 

Next, I attached White Mini Roses, (they look yellow, but they really are white), and tucked some of the Delicate Fronds die in under the flowers.

I attached everything to the card using the Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive

That is as easy as this card gets! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.

Come back tomorrow, and we will have a new CCNS challenge for you. It will be Challenge #111 - Thankful. There are beautiful cards just waiting to inspire you by the CCNS Design Team.

Debbie, this is gorgeous. I love the embossing folder you used, going on my wish list, and I like how you put the white ink over it. The Sue Wilson die cut is a beauty. I just got my Sue Wilson Joy dies and can't wait to use them. Thanks, for sharing your fabulous card.

Thanks for the compliments. I love that I can use the embossing folder year round. The Joy dies, cut beautifully and popped out so easy. I thought I would have to use wax paper on the intricate die, but everything just popped out when I used the Tool-n-One!

Beautiful card and I love all the Sue Wilson dies and embossing folders also.

Thank you for your compliment. I couldn't agree more I think Sue Wilson's dies and embossing folders are fabulous. Especially when you can mix together so easily. Have a great weekend.

Lovely card, Debbie. I love the Sue Wilson dies and embossing folders, too, but sometimes have trouble extricating the cuts from the dies, even with wax paper. I think I need a new die cut machine.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful card.
