Festive Friday Reminder: Holiday Cheer


I'm starting to crank up the creation of Christmas cards.  This fall is going to be very busy for me with more work travel than normal so I'm trying to plan ahead (we'll see how I really do :)).  I love our inspiration photo as always at Festive Friday. I embossed on vellum and fussy cut before adhering to my card base.  At first I put the silver directly on white but felt I needed a bit of color so patterned paper was added to the base of the card.

Please pop on over to Festive Friday to play along. I'd love to see how you are inspired!
