A Christmas First

I have made my first Christmas card, well it is August so we are more than half way through the year. It is quite a simple card, but it takes a while to get my christmas ideas going.

The base card is Kraft card which I have embossed with a folder. Then I have added some layers of patterned papers matted with red. A cute Santa topper is the main image. Finished off with a die cut greeting and lots of die cut Holly and Ivy leaves in copper and gold mirror card.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges
Winter Wonderland - Xmas Carol or Song
MAWTT - Snow in Summer
ABC Christmas - Quantum Leap d/die cuts
Crafting by Design - Ready for Christmas
