Merry Christmas!


I had so much fun making this card using digital downloads and some favorite MCT products!  Did you know that Jessica Sprague has One Buck Wednesdays, when you can get some awesome deals?  A couple of weeks ago, I was able to get half of the papers in the Echo Park This & That:  Christmas collection for one dollar!  All of the patterned paper on this card is from that collection!  I thought the woodgrain paper would make a nice mantle, and I added a scalloped border with the Fiskar's Treading Water border punch.


To make my sweet sentiment, I used one from My Creative Time's Warm Holiday Fun, switching out the stamped "merry" for letters cut with the new MCT Lowercase Fun Dies.  I cut them once in red cardstock and again in the patterned paper, adhering them together to make them thicker.


The sweet little stocking is a Silhouette Studio file.  I was able to "fill" the cut with the This & That patterns.  Love it!
