It's time to start thinking about Christmas cards!!! :)

I made this card for the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge #165.

In just a couple weeks, I am participating in a Christmas-themed card swap with fellow demonstrators. (Card swaps are awesome: you come up with a card and make one for each participant; then you swap your card for their card and all participants then have a excellent assortment of cards!) This is one that I'm considering, but I haven't decided for sure what card I want to make for it. I've come up with a few other good options! The tab with "Merry Christmas" was cut with the Big Shot. However, there is a punch almost exactly like it in the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalog called Decorative Label. (I'll be ordering that soon for sure!)

Below is a picture of the inside.

Stamp Set: Come to Bethlehem
Ink: Not Quite Navy, VersaMark/VersaMarker
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Brushed Silver, Whisper White
Tools: Big Shot, Top Note die, Matchbox (labels) die, Elegant Lines EF, Circle Scissor Plus (3.75" and 3.5" circles), Silver Embossing Powder, heat tool
Embellishments: Basic Pearls
