Dies and Punches at CCT

Good morning! It's Thursday so that means a new challenge theme on Cute Card Thursday, this week we want to see what you can create with your dies and/or punches.  Our sponsor is Rick St Dennis, sorry no link as my internet is barely crawling today.  Stop by the CCT blog to read all about it and see what the rest of the DT have created.

I've made a Christmas easel card with some of the new Marianne Design dies I've just added to my collection, plus a few from last year and a while back too.  The snow is glitter over a white Wacco pearl maker pen, thought I'd try that so it looks more like snow than just glitter on a card - what do you think?

 Here's the card looking down on the text and showing the die cut pine cone embellishment:

And here;s the card view on the CCT blog:

The spotty paper is from my stash with the faux embossed stitches around the edge inked with a pale blue Momento, I used the same ink to ink the embossed areas on the die cut rectangle and to create the snowy background and stamp the falling snow in the sky.  Lots of Marianne Design products on this one so here is the list:

fancy rectangle LR0111
tree scape CR1287
village and fence CR1288
tree in foreground, deer and lamppost COL1330
pine cone and branch LR0286
holly leaves, and snowflakes COL1363
text from SF1118 stamped onto small circle die from LR0180
snowflake sky stamp in die set COL1328

I hope you will come join in our challenge and I look forward to seeing what you create, even though I can't leave any comments until the internet connection picks up.  Likewise, I'm not linking up my card to any challenges, but hope you have enjoyed looking at it.
