Winter & A Die the Mod Squad challenge

I have been gone for the better part of last week and I am just now getting to complete a card for this challenge.  My BFF"s  Donna Phelan and Joyce Erb are the hosts, I could not skip this one.   They are both people and crafters the I look up to. 
the challenge is to make a winter card and use a die.  I used a lot of dies on this one.  I got my inspiration from Pinterest, a good place to go to see that is the newest and best in the card making world.  My card is a CASE of the one that I found on the site.

Here is the recipe:
GDK layering and heavy white card stock
Simon Says Falling snow stencil
Lil'inkers stitched rectangle dies
Dienamics light post die ( a freebie)
Simon Says Stitched slopes and Hills die
Memory Box Cascadia Wreath, for the leaves. Green card stock from my stash.
Simon Says Holiday Hellos for the greeting, stamped in red embossing powder
Red embroidery thread for the bow.

I think this maybe my Christmas card this year.  What do you think? 
Thanks for your comments when you stop in  


  1. Absolutely stunning! I would vote YES, but it looks like a lot of work! Love the lamp post die and your stitched snowy hills (I was trying to order them on MFT--but they were out of stock--this is a good option!) I love that falling snow too. Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Mod Squad Blog. So glad you are back! xo~

  2. Very CAS and very pretty! I just bought the light post die from MFT but haven't played with it yet. This is really lovely and I may have to case it. lol

  3. This s CAS at its best. Love all the dies you used. You got so much texture and dimension. I think everyone would love getting this as a Christmas card.

  4. Beautiful CAS Christmas design. I love the use of the dies and the embossing folder you chose for this card. Awesome look!

  5. I bet you had THE BEST time in Door County! It must be a beautiful place! Your card is just perfect for the challenge. LOVE that lamp post die, I have seen it before and was very intrigued by it. Love the stitched snowdrifts and snowy background too. A really sweet card!!!

  6. You are right with this card for Christmas. Simple and so perfect. Love it Barbara.

  7. Clean and peaceful! What the Holidays should feel like! Super card!
