Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas

So hard to believe that Christmas is right around the corner. It's time to start thinking about Christmas card designs. I'm going to put together a list of all the people I need to send cards to so I have an idea of how many I need to make. I think I'm going to make something (not sure yet) with a list of the people that I send cards to and their addresses so that it's already done for me next year and I can skip the list part.

I used the cuttlebug Lace Tree Embossing Folder. It took me some time to figure out what to do with it being it is so detailed an elegant on it's own. But when I saw the sketch challenge at OCC I knew I had to use this folder. I am excited I finally got the hang of embossing (with a heat gun and powder)!! All the paper is from Colorbok Traditional Christmas paper pack (had it for a long time). The saying is from SU Merry Little Christmas stamp set and is embossed in gold.

Chrissy, this is a lovely card! I like what you did with the embossed tree. It is very elegant on it's own! Great idea with the Christmas card list, every year I say I'm going to do that and never do. We should challenge each other to get our lists together, then maybe this would be the year I actually do it! I don't even have Christmas cards I've been making for recent challenges gathered together in one I don't know how many I even have done. aarrgghh! Oh, well! Anywhooo, I enjoyed looking around your blog...I'm sure I'll be back to visit again!
Blessings, Maria
