Traditional Christmas

I'm back to Christmas cards today.  I saw a card similar to this on Pinteret and decided to create my own version.


I used Kraft card stock and papers from the First Edition - A Christmas Story paper pad.  The star is a Tonic die and the banner is a Die-namics Fishtail Flags die.


The Poinsettia is a Sue Wilson die along with the Pine Bough and the Sentiment and Holly are Joanna Sheen dies.  I cut the sentiment several times and layered it up for dimension.


Thank you for visiting my blog today, please leave a comment so that I can come and visit you.
