Getting a Little Merry

Another Christmas card completed!!  Yeah!  I did a little embossing, used a sliver of my favorite DP (I'm running out way too fast), scalloped some edges, and used a brand new die I got from Impression Obsession!  Love it!  Oh yeah, I also added some silver cording, a tiny rhinestone for the top of the tree, and some dimensionals.  I may have to make several of these - easy to make and an easy mailer!


Thanks for stopping by.........

Outstanding card and I may have to make some right along with you. That plaid is my all time favorite one. Everything is perfect about this card. Love that die, here I go shopping again. Have a great day, Lynn.

That die is awesome, Lynn. Excellent buy. And the paper is too good. Love your crisp and clean card. Embossing looks great. And the font of the sentiment is actually merry. So cheery.

Hope your eye is doing better...
Love,

Monica

WOW! Great embossing folders, you used, Lynn. I'd be in love with that plaid dp, too. I'd be hoarding it instead of using it which is really silly. lol Love, love, LOVE this card!

Oh wow Lynn, absolutely stunning! Love how dramatic the tree is with the red! I just got this die and haven't had a chance to use it, you've given me a nudge to try using it!
