Lots of words ...

Good evening ... I'm still on the hunt for the elusive ideal Christmas card ... this is today's contribution:

I like a card that is all about the words!!  I first stamped and heat embossed with clear embossing powder the red 'Happy Christmas' then stamped the rest of the words with distress inks.  I trimmed the panel, added a fishtail and then adhered it to the card base with foam tape for added dimension.  This might just be the design I use for the balance of my cards as it is relatively simple to create.

I used:
UNIKO - Festive Sentiments, Pure Florals: Poinsettia
Distress Inks - Festive Berries, Pine Needles and Peeled Paint

I'm entering the following challenges:

"Less is More" #357
