Criss-Cross Christmas ~ CCMC375

Hello stampers!  Today's Thursday, which means it's time for Create With Connie and Mary again!  Yay!  I hope you can find time to play along with our awesome sketch this week! 
I scaled the sketch down to make it fit inside a square "window".  I thought it would be fun to play with the criss-cross element and turn them into snowbanks made with the Sleigh Ride Edgelits.  

I added in a gold glimmer paper snowflake, punched from the Snow Flurry punch, to tie in the gold in the house windows and the gold sentiment.  The little white snowflake is from last years Christmas embellishments and then I topped it off with a black sequin from the metallic sequins.
I stamped the sentiment from {Reason For The Season} in VersaMark, embossed it with Heat and Stick powder and then added the gold glitter.

Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: Reason For the Season
Ink: VersaMark
Paper: Winter Wonderland Specialty DSP, White, Black, Gold Glimmer
Accessories: Gold glitter, Snow Flurry punch, Sleigh Ride Edgelits, Frosted Sequins, Square Framelits

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
