My First Christmas Card of the Year

How about that, we go right from Halloween to Christmas. This is a version of a card I made last year using the linen technique. The paper has a texture. Click on the image to get a good look. After stamping you cover the entire surface with glue stick, then top it off with crumpled tissue paper. Save those scraps! I used the Snowflake Spot and Snow Flurries (both retired.) The sentiment is from Warm Words (dormant, but still available.) It's hard to see but I also used Aida on the Not Quite Navy card base. After I stamped, glued and tissued my cardstock I ran it through the Big Shot Top Note Die. As long as there is glue along the edges it should hold. Normally, you would turn the raw edges to the back and secure it behind. The Big Shot does a good job, though. I simple, quick card. Thanks for stopping today!
