CCC Week 2 – Die Cuts!

Hi, crafty friends! It’s time for a new Christmas Card Challenge, and this week, we’re featuring festive die cuts of all shapes and sizes!
My card features some peppermints that I die cut with a fun Savvy Stamps die and some Basic Grey Aspen Frost paper. 
I wish I would have been able to die cut the jar as well, but of the jar dies I have on hand, none of them were the right size for the image! Instead, I used Staz-On ink to stamp the jar onto a transparency sheet, and then added paper for the lid, some twine and a holly stamped accent.
Other supplies: jar stamp (American Crafts), twine (Trendy Twine), sentiment stamps (various – Paper Smooches, Some Odd Girl), button, jumbo ric rac, card stock (Stampin’ Up – red; kraft & white – PaperTrey Ink), Stickles, Glossy Accents, transparency sheet, ink (StazOn black, Brilliance Graphite Black), Copic markers.

All of our challenges are optional…the only “real” rule is that you must create a new Christmas, Holiday or Hannukah card, then link it up on our blog so we can stop by and say hi!

It’s not necessary that you use a Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp on your card, but we sure love it when you do!

Don’t forget to visit the rest of the CCC team to take a peek at the fun and festive cards they’ve created this week: AlannaCorinneJennifer,Jovita, KarenKatieLeesaLorie, MargoMichelePat, Stephanieand our guest designer Mel. B.!
