Silver and /or Gold

Hello The theme for the challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs is "Silver and / or Gold".  I wanted to show you as many of the new Christmas dies as I could so I did  a  8.5 by 8.5 cover page for a Christmas mini album. I started with a white base and stamped some clouds on it. I tore some paper to make the snowbanks. The Victorian Picket Fence  was layered along the front. Then I stared layering all the beautiful Christmas dies after cutting and inking them all up. The Gingerbread House  was placed just a touch behind the snow bank with the candy cane and candies on each side of it. The Snowflake Delight 2  was layered in the top corner. One of the snowflakes from the Snowflake Set 2 was place in the center of it and one on the fence. I then cut the Toy Soldier  in blue. red and gold and cut them to layer the different colors were I wanted them. Then I  place a piece of flesh colored paper  for the face and hands and brown for the hair on the die and cut the pieces to layer for them areas. He is just priceless.  The Reindeer Fun  dies was used next. I cut him in brown and then used a different brown for the background and fussy cut around the reindeer. I cut a second one in gold and then cut out the accents and layered it on top adding red bling to them. The nose was cut from red metallic paper. He is so adorable.  The  Icicles Border   was placed across the top. The Paris Signs 1 was placed in the top left corner with the sentiment Believe layered on top. Well I have just used several of the new Christmas dies used for you to get ideas from. Be sure to check back next week when I will be doing another cover page but for a Halloween mini album using several of the new Halloween dies .  I now invite you to join our challenge
