Its almost Christmas time again!!

I just received my pre-order from the Holiday Mini today, and couldn't wait to play with my new sets! So I decided to make a Christmas card with Home For Christmas! I love this set and am so happy I decided to get it!

I used my blender pen and my SU inks to color the image. Then I added Liquid Applique to the tree and the ground so it looked like real snow! I tore the right side of the image and matted it in Riding Hood Red card stock. The base of my card is Chocolate chip with a layer of Old olive that was stamped with the Canvas Background stamp. I wanted to use the saying that comes with the set and couldn't decide how I wanted it, so I did something kind of different. I stamped the saying on white card stock then cut it with my designer label punch. I then stamped the saying again and used my 3/4" circle punch to punch out the "Wish" part of the saying. I matted the designer label punch saying on a riding hood red circle and a chocolate chip scallop circle punch. Then I took the 3/4" circle and matted on a riding hood red 1" circle! I taped some chocolate chip ribbon flat on the old olive piece and tied the NEW Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon on top of that with a bow!
Enjoy
