Christmas Tidings!

Hello everyone!  Hope you are having a great Tuesday!

Today I have a Christmas card to share with you that I think would be a great card to send to family and friends.  I totally love to use mirror cardstock......I think it adds a wonderful richness to a quick and easy card.  

For this card, I combined this beautiful phrase from the Christmas Tidings Set, with one of my favorite new dies from Spellbinders Paper Arts - Card Creator A-2 Matting Basics A , I cut the star and the tree from the Sweet Folk Art die set, Check out all the details you get when you are using the embossing option and the added piercing details!

All of the dies I used for this card fit onto the base plate of my Grand Calibur so I can cut/emboss in one pass.  That will make reproducing this card over and over pretty easy!  See what I mean?

I stamped the sentiment from Christmas Tidings onto white cardstock and cut/embossed it using Labels Eighteen.  Then I stamped the small holly with berries image from the same set onto white cardstock, colored it with Copic markers and fussy cut the image out.  To finish it up I added some red glitter glue for the holly berries after I put the card together.  
Here is a close-up.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great day!!
