#1 Light Tis The Season Card

Created this Christmas card using a sketch which you can see below. Used a Sizzix Light die. Before I had a Cricut I had Sizzix dies like this and have kept them and found many uses for them. Used colors: gold, green, red & white. Used couple pattern papers. Embossed the background. Added some washi tape. This was first time I had stamped on washi tape. This was first time I had used heat embossing on washi tape.
