Cozy Carols of Christmas Wishes

Happy Wednesday!  Just a little over a week before the Holiday catalog is officially released (you should be receiving it in your mailbox soon if not already and I'm sure you will love it as much as I do).  Today I'm sharing another card using the new Carols of Christmas bundle that while in the Holiday catalog it's been released early and you can order it now and get started on all those holiday cards! 

I started with Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardbase and then added a layer of Garden Green cardstock as a mat for the Cherry Cobbler cardfront.  The Cherry Cobbler piece was embossed with the Big Shot and the Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder (this sweater pattern screams winter!)

Next I used the Carols of Christmas stamp set and used Stampin' Write markers to color in the greeting before stamping on Whisper White cardstock.  The greeting piece was matted with Early Espresso cardstock before being attached with dimensionals.  I cut the cute trees with the coordinating Card Front Builder Thinlits using Garden Green cardstock and then added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter for snow.

The final touch, a little holly that was stamped and then cut out with the thinlits.  I added three small pearls to the center of the holly.  To color the holly I used a red Sharpie and then went over it lightly with a Copper Sharpie to make it match closer to the Cherry Cobbler color (worked great!)

This is another nice and flat card that has a lot of elements to dress it up but is mailable to help the post office.  And that sweater embossing, makes you just want to touch it (love it!!)
