From Anniversary to Christmas

Check out the For Sale tab for some great deals.

I really love the new PTI Transformation Tuesday challenges.  Hubby's anniversary card is still on the coffee table & I have another PTI Mix & Mat Plaid die cut from my friend, Cat
Original Card
Thought the same layout & products could be used for a Christmas card.  Amazing what a different look you get by changing the colors.  
New Card
I used the same Love die stacked 4 high, brushed with Wink of Stella & covered with Nuvo Glaze.  Again I used stickers for the companion sentiment.  The green glitter is paper that is hard to die cut, but makes a gorgeous sparkly layer. 

To step this card up a notch, I added a couple die cut leafy branches from Spruce & Sprigs stamped in Sweet Blush twice & embellished with white Nuvo Drops.  I also mounted the panel with fun foam since it's white on white.  Fun to use soft green & pink for a change instead of the traditional red & green.  I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes with DiesThe Snippets Playground & WAW.

  9. So interesting to see the different colours and how they change the mood of the card. I like them both, but as Shaz said, I really must use what I have before I buy any more dies!
