My first Christmas card of the year!

My sister emailed me last week and asked if I would make her about 15 Christmas cards and that would be her Christmas gift from my family to her. So, I have been thinking on and off over the past week of how I could make something really nice for her that would not be embarrassing to send out to her friends. Well, I think I came up w/ it! I have been seeing on Splitcoast this leaf type punch by Martha Stewart. I had to get to Michael's this week anyway, so while I was there, I found it and grabbed one! I LOVE THIS PUNCH!!!! Now, I have only used it once so far, but I see HUGE potential in this little baby! I can't wait to try it out again!

Anyway, on to the card! The layout in my head isn't the same as what you're seeing. I didn't have a small enough Christmas greeting to do what I wanted to do. But, I like this as it is, so it worked out in the end! And I'm always one for improvising!

To make this card, I used Real Red, Whisper White, and Wild Wasabi paper. To make the green sparkle, I versamarked a space of Wasabi and then sprinkled, ok, poured Kaleidoscope embossing powder over it and heated. The greeting is from a stamp God knows where I got it. I used my scallop oval nestibilities and oval nest. which you can purchase HERE. I punched the berries w/ Real Red and the smallest circle punch by SU!. I used the snowflake cuttlebug folder, and silver ribbon. Very easy! Well, if you have the tools! But, this card can be changed up and enhanced!

I just love this card! I'm keeping this one for myself! I love it so much! And I don't usually get on soapbox about my stuff. I like everything that I post on here, or else it won't get posted. But, this card is just amazing to me!

Hope you like this as much as I do!
Happy Stamping!
