Christmas card #1

Lawn Fawnastics is having a challege #16; Use your oldest Lawn Fawn stamp. "Critter in the snow" is my oldest stamp set which I bought in the fall of 2010. Lawn Fawn opened for business in March 2010. 6 months after the opening, I decided to buy some of their stamps for the first time. This is my first Christmas card this year. 

I use VersaMark dazzle on black card stock, swiped with my faves, perfect pearls in 3 colors; interference green & red, Sparkles, to give more Christmas feeling. The "dull silverish gold" color heavy weight paper behind the front panel is from the "wrapping box" of cookies from Japan. It's not gold nor silver and I really liked the color behind the front image, showing stars to be that color. 
These are the stamps and dies I used. All Lawn Fawn

Critter in the snow (2010)
Santa's hat ~ "Hats off to you" set (2010)  Actually this stamp set was the oldest stamp among Lawn Fawn products I have but I didn't buy that set until some years later.      
Speech bubble ~ the coordinating die set of "A birdie told me" stamp set but I only bought die set (2012). 
The sentiment and the sparkles ~ "Merry Message" set (2016)
Starry skies die (2017)
Stitched hillside border dies in shadow box die set (2017) This set has two small stitched hillside in a package and I used both to make a larger hillside border, for the larger space, and cut the shimmery white paper. It worked pretty well 👍

I'm also sending this card to a card making friend in Norway. My first time, mailing something to Norway! 

Hope y'all are having a nice weekend! Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
