Christmas Day with Mulberry Wood & Giveaway Friday

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Friday's post with Steph. Many of you may know I run a handmade card business and usually once August comes around, I'm in full fledged Christmas card making mode in order to have inventory ready for the season and it's timely that this week's new release is Mulberry Wood Christmas images. I love that this collection not only has images, it also has so many sentiment and tag images that I don't always have enough of. Here is how I used one of them.

This is a simple card to make - I embossed and sanded a piece of card stock, matted it with patterned paper and stamped the tag image, then die cut it. A bonus I discovered - all the circle tag images on this stamp set fit the Spellbinders Nestabilities circle die SM perfectly. Yay - sure makes easy work! I hope this gives you some inspiration for your Christmas card making.
