This Year's Bulk Christmas Card

I have a lot of Christmas cards built up in my stash so far for this year, but I always like to make a bulk set of at least one card.  

This one is it.  ;)

So far I've only made 4 of these cards, but I can easily whip up more if I don't have enough Christmas cards to mail out by the end of November.

I used a PTI tree die shape and cut it out of Kraft Paper, then simply backed it with a piece of the Kraft/Black houndstooth paper from the Basics Paper Fundamentals pack.

The "Merry" is a SU thinlets die.

Really a pretty easy card to create, and I like the layers and country feel of it by using the houndstooth with Cranberry, Kraft, Black and Colonial White color combination.  It just works.  :)

Happy creating!  :)

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  Basics Paper Fundamentals; Kraft, Black, Colonial White, Cranberry CS
Stamp:  Merriest Christmas
Ink:  Black
Embellishments:  Clear Sparkles, Red Shimmer Trim, Black Star
Other:  Expressions Thinlits Die (SU), In the Meadow Silhouettes Dies (PTI), Micro-tip Scissors

Lovely Christmas cards.
I am in awe of how ahead of the game you are. I don't do my Christmas cards until December.
