Wonderful Christmas

Hey everyone!  I hope you are all doing well!  It has been so cold here in Kansas this week!  Brrrr!!
And that seems like the perfect time to share a Christmas card!!  I can't believe we are less than a month away from Christmas!  The time has FLOWN!

wonderful Christmas 1.1

I think I mentioned recently, how much I LOVE the new die from Lil' Inker Designs called "On the Diagonal"!  This thing has so many uses!  I created this card with that die.  I started with two rectangles that I die cut from the LID Stitched Mats: Rectangles in different patterned papers.  I then used the On the Diagonal die to cut those both apart.  I love how there are two different patterned papers featured now.  

Wonderful Christmas Closeup

I embossed the sentiment onto a chalkboard background that was stamped with the Hero Arts Chalkboard Background stamp that I love. I then added some reddish enamel dots and Shimmer twine from the Twinery to tie it all together.  I really like how the colors on this card all worked together.  That dark green cardstock is Pinefeather from PTI and it is the FIRST time I've ever used it that I can recall and I've had it for a long, long time! :)

I'm going to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge "Anything Goes"!
Thanks for joining me today!  I hope you are staying nice & warm!  Have a good day!

Stamps: LID Instant Camera Christmas, Hero Arts Chalkboard Background
Patterned Paper: Simple Stories
Twine: The Twinery

Love your card today Jen...I am really enjoying all the great diagonal die cards since the release, especially this one because I love that little doily peeking out from the side. I can't wait to try this idea using the stitched rectangles too. Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
