52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - Chipboard Challenge

Hello friends!  HO HO HO its the last week of the month and that means that the DT at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown has an embellishment challenge for you.  We want to see your creations using chipboard on your card. The chipboard can be your main element as it is on my card (see below) or just a piece or two on your card. 
I really liked the colors from our 52CCT color challenge #8 so I used them again with this card.  These fun sparkly chipboard letters (and cute hat) are part of a stash I have been hoarding for quite some time (lol).  The metalic silver cardstock was run through my Sizzix Big Shot machine using the Northern Flurry embossing texture folder.  This is a 5 minute card and I just love how this turned out! No stamping on the front, so I put some on the inside instead:

If you would like to see some more great inspiration just pop on over to the 52CCT challenge blog and see the creations that the other DT members have prepared for you.  We would love to have you join the challenge this week and share your wonderful creations with us.  It's a great way to keep up with your Christmas cards and be able to check that off your Christmas to-do list first :o)
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today - I'm sure glad that you did!  Til next time - Hugs!!

Supplies:  Chipboard letters - Me and My Big Ideas.  Santa hat - Jolee's stickers.  Cardstock - Brushed Silver, Real Red and Whisper White (all Stampin Up!). Sizzix Textured Embossing folder - Norther Flurry (SU).  Santa Stamp - Jolly Old Saint Nick (retired SU set), sentiment is from Just Believe (SU).  Dazzling Details glitter glue on the tip of Santa's hat finishes it off.
