Holiday Card 30 - X for XO

Hello, everyone! Today I'm sharing another holiday card!  I'm getting a lot of them made this month with inspiration from Beccy's Place and her sixth annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge. Beccy has been inspiring us with alphabet prompts all month - she's on the letter "T" but I've been jumping ahead and I'm already on "X" so I went with xo.


My card was inspired by a tag I saw on YouTube here.  I die-cut some houses in white cardstock and gold-foil posterboard to make a little scene.  I gathered some white crepe paper and added a red sequin bow and trim.  The patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn, and I added some puffy stickers (snowman, holly, stars) from my Dollarama stash, along with a green snowflake sequin, to embellish the scene.  You can bearly see the stamped sentiment in the lower right corner, but it says "xoxo" (Clearly Besotted).

I would also like to support the following challenges:  Cardz TV 75 AG 1/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper November UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Beginning with "H" (houses, hat, holly) UE; Creatalicious AG Optional Layer it Up UE; Cute Card Thursday Festive Colours UE; DL.ART November Linky AG UE 1/d; Happy Little Stampers AG w Dies UE; Jo's Scrap Shack AG 1/3; Just Keep on Creating November AG UE

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

Oh my, this is so creative and unique, Kitty!! Wow!! You have created a stunning design with that crepe paper, the gorgeous red sequin bow and the trim of sequins!!! Such amazing touch to make the lovely diecut houses pop!! The gold and the puffy holly give a so festive look and that cute snowman peeking out from the crepe is just delightful and fun!!

I was wondering what the x was going to be. I'm sure a lot of people went with xmas, so it was creative to go with the hugs and kisses. I love a city scene and it's even cuter with the snowman. [Bunny]```

What a fabulous little Christmas town you made Kitty, love it! Wonderful combination of colours and little embellishments... clever use of the the letter "X", it's the hardest one in the alphabet I think. Great job!
Cheers,
Beccy
