Christmas Cheer

I know it isn't even Halloween yet but it is never too early to start thinking about what Christmas cards you will be sending out this year! My inspiration for this card comes from Maggie Patterson.  It uses the Holiday Collection Framelits and the Sweet Essentials stamp set.  After using the Framelits and my Big Shot to cut out the tree, I glued ribbon behind the tree.  My star is punched out with the set Merry Minis in the Holday Catalog.  I used our beautiful silver glimmer paper. I cut my sentiment on a strip of paper and used one of my square punches at each end to get the little notches.  It is so cool when you can used a punch in a different way!

I am happy with this card but it is a tad plain to me.  I would like to try another one with an embossed front or perhaps a little bit of shimmer mist!

Thank you for stopping by today!  Don't forget about my blog candy post - you can read about it HERE
