#2 Light Merry Christmas 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: green, red, silver & white. Used couple pattern papers. Embossed the background. Added some washi tape. This was second time I had stamped on washi tape. This was second time I had used heat embossing on washi tape.
