Deck the Halls

This card reminds me of crisp midwestern winter days when it may have been frozen nose-hair cold outside but inside the wood stove would be blazing away and we had the Christmas music playing and  the tree in the living room would be lit with the lamps turned off the better to enjoy the twinkling.  And let's not forget the sound of siblings fighting in the background.  LOL.

For this card I chose to use two embossing folders; easy to do now that they're all organized in my stash (love!).  Under the green strip of patterned paper I scored a couple of lines but it didn't feel quite right so I faked washi tape with patterned paper.  Methinks I should be getting some green washi tape.  The outside sentiment is printed on my laserjet on vellum.

The Details:  Cuttlebug bird and Darice music embossing folders, mystery PP and card stock from old stash, PTI white card stock, red washi tape, printable vellum, epoxy berries, Sharpie (eyes)

I'm entering this in Less is More 146 Designer Paper in a CAS way, Curtain Call CAS-ual Christmas,and Jingle Belles Holiday Traditions.
