My First 2014 Christmas Card

I've made my first Christmas card for this year!  Unlike many cardmakers who make lots of different cards for Christmas, I'm afraid I design just two or three and mass produce them.  One or two friends who I know will keep them and who won't have recycled them by the end of December may get a 'one off', if I have time.  So this is my first design for this year.  I needed to do a bit a careful measuring as I didn't want the embossing to go under the 'Christmas' word, but it was fairly quick to make.
The die is a Memory Box one and I've used a Sizzix embossing folder, not sure about which one as I've had it for ages and there is no name on it.  The little punched tree is topped with a punched holographic star.  Apart from the base card, everything else was made with snippets, so by Christmas my snippet pile should be greatly reduced!

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:


  1. Hi Liz, a very nice CAS cd and i love this embossing folder looks very nice.
