Christmas Church

A new die and another Christmas card!  It's one of the new release Die'sire dies, I thought this church would be very versatile, good for wedding, christening, and of course Christmas cards.
 The church was fun to decorate, I added Glamour dust over Cosmic Shimmer white PVA for snow, and glazed the windows with Glossy Accents to look like stained glass.
The papers are Dovecraft, Back to Basics, Christmas, Modern, to which I've added a die cut kraft oval that I lightly dragged gesso over with a piece of scouring pad.  I then stamped the oval with a stamp from a Creative Expressions set called Christmas Post, in fact, all the stamps used on this card are from that set.
To embellish I added, some layered ribbon, a matching double bow, some die cut ivy made with a Joanna Sheen die, some poinsettias made with Nellie Snellen punches and silver micro beads,some punched snowflakes, some cream pearls, some tiny iridescent dew drops, and a few touches of Star Dust Stickles here and there.
