Merry & Bright

Hey everyone!  Are you done with your holiday stuff, or are you like me and creating like a mad woman?  I wasn't going to do Christmas cards this year but then I suddenly got the itch and now I am a card making, photo taking, post writing, fool.  

I made my card after seeing this beautiful CAS card on the blog I'm in Haven - Lisa has created for many of our favorite companies and I am sure you will be inspired if you visit her blog just as I was.  First, this is my take on the card:

Of course after the card was finished, I noticed I'm off on my spacing, but you know what I say to that don't you?  That is the charm of being handmade. :)  Before I get into what I used to make my card, check out Lisa's card from I'm in Haven which inspired me:

This amazing card was made by Lisa Andrews, AKA I'm in Haven

What I Used to Make my Card:
White Top Fold Card Base
Authentique 6 x 6 paper pad, Festive {retired but available}
Reverse Confetti Winter Words Dies {retired}
Reverse Confetti Winter Words Coordinates {retired}
Embossing Ink
Gold Embossing Powder

Of course, everything I used to make this card is retired but there are so many different word dies and sentiment stamps out there, I wanted to share it with you anyway.  I die cut the words from plaid Christmas paper, stamped the words, and embossed with gold embossing powder, then it a wrap.  I really love the simplicity of this card so I am going to go through my stash and see if I can recreate the look of the card using products that you can actually buy!

I hope you enjoyed my card!  Time is running out fast now and I am feeling the pressure! Have a great day and I hope to see you very soon!   ~ Christi
