Christmas in February Part 8

The next die cut sheet in the kit (Hunkydory Cute Christmas) is about the North Pole and has some paper tole type embellishments.  For this first card, I started with a white glitter card stock card base.   I added a die cut that looks a lot like a post card.  Then, I added a paper tole sign post (pieces layered with foam tape).

For the inside, I took a leftover piece of coordinating card stock to see what it would like like for the inside.  It hung out below the bottom, making it look like a cut away card.  I decided I like the look and I had some leftover white glitter card stock, so I simply added a strip to the back of the overlap.

I ran a red ribbon across, then added a leftover piece of striped card stock to the center, with gold outline stickers on either side.  The greeting die cut was also from the kit.

The second card started with a large die cut piece from the kit.  The background is coordinating card stock framed with outline stickers. I added a tag from the kit, using foam tape to add some dimension.

The inside border was a leftover strip from the coordinating card stock, framed with gold outline stickers.  Another die cut sentiment from the kit finished the inside.

The third card in this set used another paper tole piece - this time a Santa.  It is attached to a background piece cut from coordinating card stock.  I highlighted the snow on the background with some Stickles.

The inside used another piece of coordinating card stock and a leftover die from a previous sheet of dies.

I only got 4 cards from this die cut sheet & coordinating card stock sheets - because much of it went into layers for the paper tole.  This last card used leftover pieces of the coordinating card stock & sentiment die cuts from 2016 Christmas Sentiments.  Once again I used Stickles to highlight the snow and stars in the background piece.

Here's the inside of this last one:

So that's 4 more cards from this kit for a running total of 37 cards so far.
