Is everyone still "stuffed" from Thanksgiving?? We are looking forward to "round 2" today with the leftovers!

And now on to my Christmas card.... This card was created using white cardstock as a base card and green textured cardstock as a front matting. I stamped the candle image and surrounding circle onto smooth white cardstock. After coloring the candles, bow and greenery with Copic markers, I used my circle nesties to cut out the candle image. I then used to scalloped nesties to cut a small red matting and a larger green matting. The three layers were glued together and set aside.
I used the base layer of my nestie charm to create the pretty printed background matting. I attached the three layers with the candle image to the center of the charm and affixed the charm to the front of the card.
I used Peel Off Christmas phrases to add greetings to the cards, as well as two different ribbons to create a different feel for each of the cards. Where the print ribbon creates a sassy, fun card, the solid ribbon creates an elegant card. In both cases I finished the cards with white gel pen doodles.
Depending on my post-Thanksgiving recovery and decorating schedule I may or may not return tomorrow with a new project. I will keep both of us guessing!
