Finally another Christmas card!

 Hi All, and thank you to all of you who are still with me.  I apologize for falling behind on my visits to your blogs, I hope you will forgive me.  I have just had too much on my plate of late and I just can't seem to get caught up.  
Here is a card I made for the Gecko Galz Design Team using
Gecko Galz Snowbabies image and 
Song in my Heart papers.  Sorry I could not find the exact set we were given for the cross promo, but there is a link to the shop and all of the papers there are quite beautiful.  I also used red card stock and rhinestones.
Directions
Print Song in my heart paper 5 x 7 on Staples matte photo paper, print 4x6 on copy paper, glue 5 x 7 image to card front.
Crop Snowbabies image in Pic Monkey, add decorative borders, print on Staples matte photo paper and mount to card front.  Cut pinwheels on Zing, fold and glue, add rhinestones and mount to card.  Glue envelope liner to envelope.
That's it for today, thank you for stopping by.  ~Diane

  1. Hi Diane, this is a stunning card. I love the graphic and the plaid background you used with the red pop of color in the pinwheel flowers is gorgeous. As always the matching envelope is perfect.
    I know you are very busy with getting ready for the new baby. Take good care and enjoy the fun!!
    Have a great rest of the week.
    Hugs and Blessings
