The stamp used both on the inside and outside of the card is by Inkadinkado. I used 5 (365 cards challenge) different layers alternating with different patterns of black and white. I also layered each layer with the foam dimensional dots. The stamp of Mother and Child is the religious theme about Christ's Birth. I finished it off with a few pearls both on the inside and outside. Thanks for looking and taking a minute to think about what Christmas is really all about. Ok after I finished all this, it was brought to my attention, that I didnt pay attention *wink* This does not qualify for the 365, I was suppose to use five stamps. Blame it on my age. :) Thanks Robyn for catching me trying to cheat. ;)

And then this one on Saturday
Well Pam my childhood school mate, that I recently reconnected with had this to say about Flossie?
"Is Flossie in the in or out box"
I thought that was so cute and original. and to answer her question, I guess I would have to say, it's where ever she wants to me. See, she rules this house. She owns me, I don't own her. she is sitting here reading this as I tye, reminding me of that fact. Thanks Pam for the chuckle this morning.

In the last picture you can see that the same paper was used just in different colors. I used little gold seed beads for the center of the flower. The next one I make, I will use the green that comes in the pack, and will sand down the gloss of of it. I will also sand down around the edges of the red petals. It would look a lot more realistic.

I know many of you have already done a lot of layering on your cards, but now I want you to use it along with some fussy cutting to create a foreground/background image. Make sense? The idea is to use these techniques to create some perspective. If you often do this on your cards, you will be quite at ease with this challenge, but if not, then this is the time to give it a try.
I use my Cricut Christmas Cartridge to do almost all of this. The man in the chair was googled and printed out and cut. That was the fussy cutting part of the challenge. It was really tiny little cuts around his face. The packages under the tree was from some stickers. I used the foam dots for dimension. I used the pale yellow card stock behind the cut out window, so it would look like the light inside the house. I used the gray card stock for base, so it would look dark outside the window.

My son Chris' Birthday is on Monday, I thought I would give him this card, since he does like denim shirts. It needed to be a lighter shade, but already had then one cut out. I faux stitched around the color and on the button placket. I put the collar and placket on with foam dots. I used little studs and my cropodile to sit them.
I cut the branch out using my Cricut. I used the shadow feature to cut the bottom branch. I used the Nestability to cut my frame, and used foam dots to lift up the frame and the branch.
Pat's Saturday Night challenge was to use dimension. So this will qualify for that too. Thanks Pat and Pam for all the work you do to make the challenges possible. If you see some typos and such, it is because Flossie Mae insisted on helping me tonight.
