Merry Christmas! and blog hop reminder

 Hello Crafty Friends!

First, just a friendly reminder that today is the last day to leave a comment in the Way With Words blog hop.  Every blog participating in the hop has a die or stamp for a winning comment.  Start your blog hop here for more info

December 1 is tomorrow and the Christmas cards will be frantically finished by some crafters- like me, as an example.  Today I am sharing a quick and elegant card using Elizabeth Craft Designs Merry Christmas die designed by Quietfire Design's Suzanne Cannon.

The die was used to cut red glitter paper and white card stock.  Musical paper from Tim Holtz' Yuletide paper pad was mounted on white card stock.  A piece of seam binding was wrapped as shown.  The Merry Christmas die cuts were offset and adhered on the paper. 
The layered assembly was mounted on a tent fold Kraft card base.  A double seam binding bow was the finishing touch. 
Yes, it was a quick and easy card but the results are elegant.  I really like how the red glitter die just "pops" off the card.  Such a pretty die!

I had better get back to card making.  The cards need to be ready for mailing soon!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed the card and I wish you luck in the blog hop!
Big Crafty Hugs,
Kathy Jo
