Tis the Season! - Lindsay's Stamp Stuff

I'm in the Christmas spirit! I've got my tree up and my house decorated and it's high time I made some Christmas cards! Here is the first one! I am so excited about Lindsay's new Christmas sets! They are so versatile!

The base for this card and the Happy Holidays Punch out comes from the Winter Printables set, which includes several different printables, including some cupcake wrappers for just $4.00. The wreath comes from the Christmas Potpourri set, also $4.00.

To make this card, I simply printed the card base on white cardstock, then cut to the size card I wanted, then folded. I painstakingly cut out this adorable wreath and then used pop dots to add some dimension. The snowflake charms are 8 pieces/$1.76 at wal-mart. They look metal, but are really plastic.

I am using this card to participate in the following challenges:
Charisma Cards -- Anything Christmas
Crazy 4 Challenges- Using a Punch
Creatalicious- Glitter & Snowflakes
Dare U 2 Digistamp- Glitter
Digital Tuesday- Sparkles & Christmas
Pollycraft- Anything Christmas
Pink Elephant- Using favorite coloring method (mine is my Bic Mark Its)
Papertake Weekly- Sketch

Now for your Thursday Freebie (sorry I missed last week, I'm making up for it now)

These are for all my fellow twilight fans! Of course, I'm TEAM EDWARD, but I know there are many Jacob fans out there as well. For example, I designed these for my cousin Shayla who I'm making a shirt for as a Christmas gift. I'm letting her aunt choose the design. I'll show pics of the final result later.
