Christmas Blessings

We mail out a lot of Christmas cards and whenever I can come up with a relatively flat card to mail out I am super pleased!  I made this card several weeks ago and decided it was time to make about ten of them to jump start my Christmas card stash.  To give the card a little extra finish, I matted a gray piece of card stock with a thin border of black card stock.  I love the way the square card base and gray/black mimicked the square outline on the fabulous intricate die cut from Frantic Stampers.  To finish off the card I added a simple sentiment and one little gem to highlight the holly in the die cut.  So nice to finally be getting a dent in the Christmas cards...December is right around the corner!

PS My intent was to make quite a few more cards to play along with some of the Christmas challenges...but there is a band practicing in my basement :) They sound amazing, but it is pretty loud in my craft room!
