It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Hey everyone! This is Maria for another card inspiration with LDRS Creative!
Is anyone else excited for Christmas?  I can't wait to be honest!  My husband and I are finally able to book a flight to go home for the holidays and I am counting the days!  I can't wait to see my kids and our home!  I am also excited to get a fresh tree and decorate it with my kids and that is my inspiration for today's card.
This slimline card is so easy to make and believe it or not, I only used one 6x6 patterned paper using the City Sidewalks Paper Pack to fill in the background.  Do you want to know how?  I started by using the second largest die from the Slim Line Corner Scallop die set and positioned this at the bottom left side of the paper.  I ran it through my die-cutting machine to get the first piece.  I did the same step but positioned the die at the top right hand corner of the paper to get the next piece.  
Next, I used the two biggest die from the Slim Line Corner Scallop die set to die-cut the frame and the inside piece.  I adhered the two pieces of patterned paper that I die-cut previously, making sure that the bricks lined-up perfectly to get a cohesive look.
The images from the City SidewalksCountry Corner Accessories and City Streets stamp sets were stamped with Raven Hybrid ink on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I colored the images in with my alcohol markers and die-cut using the coordinating dies.
Now that I have all of the pieces together, I am ready to assemble my card.  First, I foam-mounted the black frame that was die-cut earlier using the Slim Line Corner Scallop die set on a slimline card base.  I adhered the background that I previously fused together on the center of the card with liquid glue.  Next, I added foam adhesive to my focal image (the car) and adhered this piece on the card, making sure that I positioned this to cover the fused background.  I also foam-mounted the mailbox for added dimension and adhered the Light Post, Letter to Santa, and the Wreath with liquid glue to adorn the scene.
I stamped the sentiments from the Christmas Wishes stamp set on some black card stock using the LDRS Watermark Ink.   I sprinkled some White Embossing Powder on the sentiments and heat-set them with my heating tool.  I used the Wave Ribbon Stack coordinating dies to die-cut all the sentiments at once.  I really love this stamp and die combo!  You only stamp it once but you a get a lot of sentiment strips that you can use for your projects later.  I foam-mounted the sentiment on the card for added dimension.
I finished my design by adding some Stickles to the snow and used my white gel pen to add some dots to the car for more texture.  Here's another look:
Don't you just LOVE the new release by LDRS Creative?  To be honest, I really can't pick a favorite!  I love them all!  This scene from the City Sidewalks 6x6 paper pack was so easy to put together and you definitely need to check them all out!  It's a must-have for sure!
I hope you like my card today.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
