My First Christmas Card

I'll just start with an apology.  Yes.  A Christmas!  It will be here before you know it so I've decided no better time to start.  This was an easy one and I used some old CTMH paper and the new September Stamp of the Month Poster Tidings.  This is a great stamp set and the card was oh so easy.  I just stamped the poster image twice... once in Champagne and once in Ruby.  Then I used part of the ruby image and popped it up over the lighter one to call attention to it.  The great thing is I'll be able to use the rest of the ruby image in the same way and just highlight different sections of the stamp.  This is going to be a set you have to have. I then embellished with the Ruby Mini Medley accents.  I used up the felt poinsettias in the pack, but I can easily cut some on the Cricut with my CTMH cartridges and layer a couple and make my own when I create more.  I also used the pink glitter gems.  Also, instead of the baker's twine I will use hemp and/or the burlap ribbon and unravel it to use the separate fibers.  Can't wait to make more.  When I do I'll upload the different version.

OK, you make me want to use this Sept SOTM now. You are just a Scrapping Maniac lately! I'll have to cut out some red flowers and make this card too. So glad you are back "inspiring" me again!
