A little late...Happy Holidays card

You might have thought that you had seen the end of Christmas cards. Not if you are reading my blog! I actually ended up making this card for a teacher after the holidays were over because my kids had a snow day on the last day of school and so I had time to actually make cards to send in with their holiday gifts when school started back up!

I could say this card was inspired...but the truth is that it's pretty much a copy of the card that Kristina Werner made on Day 18 of her Holiday Card Series posts. I love the combination of bright Christmas red on the kraft card. It just sings to me. I used my very fun Unity Stamp Co. Tags, Glorious Tags holiday set for both the framed image and the sentiment. I also used some "twine" that I purchased from Pick your Plum and discovered that it's pretty much cotton string rather than baker's twine. Much thicker than the more high quality twine you can buy - but it works and I really like the final product!

On the inside of the card I added some candy cane striped washi tape to the top and bottom to give it a little pizazz, but I'm not including a picture of that because it's not really that interesting!

Ok. With any luck I will be moving onto Valentine's Day cards before the holiday actually arrives! Stay tuned for that post any day now...
