The 25th Dimension in One Layer

Hello friends!
Hope you are having a great week so far!
Pretty soon it will be time for "Talking Turkey" here in the U.S. (Thanksgiving that is!)  I always look forward to spending time with family and I'm sure it will be great fun!

Today, I have a fun lone layer Christmas card to share with you:
I thought I'd have a little "play on numbers" here with my Christmas design today!
I have actually used two different stamp sets from Lawn Fawn.  They are both older sets, but I think one of them has even been "retired".  (Of course this is the first time that I've used it too!)  LOL!

So the embossed gold snowflakes on my design come from the Critters in Snow.  The "December" sentiment comes from a retired set from Lawn Fawn called "Say Cheese, Too".  I have that stamped in some Gumball Green ink.  I've also added a drop of gold stickles to the center of each gold embossed snowflake.

For the side of my design, I have used some really old (Stampin' 'Up!) Sizzix dies for the numbers.  I cut several of the numbers out with white card stock and then I took some of the Lawn Fawn (retired) "Snow Day" designer papers to cut out the red colored numbers on my design.  All of the white numbers were glued down to my card base and the red numbers were popped up for dimension over top of the strip of white numbers with foam tape pieces.

Lastly, I took some glue dots and rolled them to attach to the back of the snowflake sequins on my design which gave them extra dimension as well.  I think the only thing that doesn't have any sort of dimension on it would be the "December" word!

This concept is simple and fun.  I really enjoyed putting it together too!
Thanks so much for popping in today!  I hope you've enjoyed my one layer CAS Christmas card of the 25th dimension!! :)  See you soon!

I love the repetition of the 25 and then the single pop of color. The other elements add dimension but don't distract. Fabulous card. so glad you joined us for our birthday celebration at ATCAS this week
