Merry Christmas card

Hello everyone and a very warm welcome to Oksana, Scottish Crafter, Anne-Marie and Mary who are new followers this week. I'm always thrilled when new people come on board and I hope you will find something here to tickle your interest.

The challenge over at Less is More this week is to use silver, so I decided to make a Christmas card using my new Simple Stripes impression plate from Papertrey Ink. I kept it very simple and let the sentiment be the focal point

The word Christmas (from Stampendous) was stamped before I embossed the card with the impression plate, and the word Merry was cut from textured silver card with a Sizzlits die. I love the little Santa Hat perched on the M. I used the white dotted ribbon again and I can see it coming out a lot this year for my Christmas cards. I'm sorry its red again Mandi!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week.
