*2016 Christmas Cards #32*

When I saw this stamp set and dies by Simon Says Stamp, I knew I had to have them.... but the dies were out of stock.  My favourite thing about the Simon Says Stamp website is that you can easily request to be notified when an item is back in stock... so I did that (I just wish they had a wish list feature too!).  And as soon as I got the email, I went to the website, clicked on "add to cart" and finished the transaction without another thought.

Sadly, it's been about a week since they arrived...  I finally had a chance to sit down to play today.

The idea for this card came to me last night...  I should have added a gold element as I really wanted this to scream "Santa" as inspiration....

My first idea was to use the red sparkle on the black, but I really ended up loving the black on the red sparkle instead.  I ended up not using the stamp set at all, just the two dies that come in the set.

Hi Nancy -- sorry so late in posting but wanted to say I am enjoying seeing your new creations. On the SimonSaysStamp, I use the Project List (see the left side on the account home after you log in) to keep a wishlist.
