Tidings of Comfort & Joy

This is my first Christmas card for this year.  I love the way it turned out. The card base is textured Always Artichoke, 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 folded in half. The mats are Always Artichoke also as well as the Sizzlets Lots of Tags label 2 die, and the small buttons.  I used the new Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder on the Cherry Cobler panel. The sentiment is from the Word Play stamp set and is stamped in Cherry Cobler on Crumb Cake (formerly Kraft) CS, and inked on the edge with Soft Suede ink.  I used the gold cord from last years' Holiday Mini.  That's about it. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.


  1. Oh JoAnn, how sweet is this? I LOVE the embossed background and how you tied the bow is just perfect! Super pretty!!

  2. Oh my goodness JoAnn I love this card. Beautiful colors & I LOVE that die for your sentiment. Haven't seen it before ... Also really like that you used a colored ink for the sentiment. I have a lot of SU ink & just always grab the black. This is beautiful & you have inspired me to use my colors ... Thanks for the inspiration ...
    Hugs, Janie
