DeNami Design Product Challenge #5

The challenge at DeNami Design this time is to use punches on your project.

I hadn't gotten around to designing a Christmas card for this year, so I thought I had better get to it. 

Keeping the theme of punches in mind, I chose my border punch from Fiskars.  I really don't have very many border punches to choose from.  Maybe Santa will take care of that for me. (It is hard to see in the picture, but it is just to the left of the sentiment and is the opening of the card.)  I used the DeNami Design Medium Curly Christmas Tree and the Upright Holiday Cheer sentiment.  I did a bit of distressing with Sahara Sand ink from Stampin' Up on both to soften them up a bit.  I used DeNami Design Sparklets Glitter on the star and the garland of the tree.  It is so easy to do with the Quickie Glue Pen!  I used Lemon Sorbet on the star and Blue Ice on the garland.  I cut the scalloped oval with my Cricut using the Lacy Labels cartridge.  It actually started life as a circle.  I embossed the front of the card using my Cuttlebug and the Swiss Dots folder.  A little ribbon from my stash and I finally have a Christmas card.  Now to finish the rest of them!!

Rae Ann, this card is SO pretty! Whoever is on your Christmas card list is going to be lucky to get one of these pretty cards! I love the ink distressing you did- it really warms up the card!
