Joy Christmas Card

I am starting to get into the Christmas spirit. This week I will haul the Christmas tree up from the basement and start the decorating process.  Usually Amanda is the one that helps me decorate the house but she has a place of her own now.

I have also been playing around with some new products we have at the store.  I used a stamp and embossing folder set from Sizzix/Hero Arts to create this Christmas card.  We used it in a demo/make 'n take.  It was really popular and all the folders sold out.


I used white ink to stamp the snowflakes and then lined them up in the embossing folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug.  I added some iridescent bling to the center of some of the snowflakes and adhered some red/white bakers twine around the edge of the kraft cardstock.


The letters were cut out on my Silhouette.  I love how thin they are and they cut beautifully.  I made a strip and placed the letters and added a twine bow with a bling center.


I love how clean and simple this card it, but it have a great impact.  Thanks for looking :)
