Rustic Christmas Card & Card Challenges

I just love all things rustic. When our team lead gave us this months challenge as soon as I saw the elements I immediately thought rustic! I used Crumb Cake for the card base, I then stamped the hardwood stamp in Crumb Cake on Whisper White card stock. I then took a piece of Early Espresso  card stock and stamped the hardwood in Early Espresso also. I die cut the swirly scribble in Gold foil, the jar in Whisper White, pine cones in Dazzling Diamonds and Red glimmer paper plus in Early Espresso. I die cut some twigs and berries. The tree and deer came from our team lead. I did not have the dies but I knew I wanted them in glimmer paper so I traced them and cut them out. I cut the tree shorter so it could fit on my shelf. I pepped them up with dimensional. I then put the ribbon at the top of the wreath and finally added a piece of the new foil snowflake to the shelf. I had a lot of fun creating this card and I love BLING!
