Winter Wonderland card using Graphic 45's Twas the Night Before Christmas paper

 Yay!  It is Saturday!  FINALLY.

This week I was fortunate to find time to craft.  The Christmas card stash increased and I am feeling confident that this year there will not be any last minute cards to make!  Woo-who!  I owe it to my New Year's Resolution (make one Christmas card a month) and all of the gorgeous holiday stamps from Quietfire (they so inspire me to use them...Suzanne rock).

The card I am sharing now was based off a sketch by a sweet blogging friend, Jessi.  She is a designer at Tuesday morning sketches and came up with this great sketch this week.  The sketch made it easy as the card took less than 1.5 hours to make.  That is honestly not bad for me as I do nothing quickly in my crafty room.
Right away I thought of the new Graphic 45 paper, Twas the Night Before Christmas, and Quietfire's new stamp set, Winter Wonderland:

Ok. Ok.  I know what you are thinking.  Shouldn't it be snowflake paper?  Nope.  I wanted to use the holly paper.  Call me a rebel. 

Here is a side view of the card.  Stickles was used (big surprise) on the fussy cut holly and all of the holly on the background paper.
Flat view of the card.  Guess what?  I can actually mail this one.  
Edges were distressed with Antique Linen.  Green button was from my stash and gold metallic twine was used on the button.
Hope you enjoyed the card and I hope your Christmas stash is doing well!

Thanks for the awesome sketch, Jessi!  

Have a good weekend and thanks for stopping by!
