It’s already the 25th of the month and that means it’s time for a Christmas post. It is only September and I have most of my Christmas cards done for 2016 because I committed to making some each month and at least one per card workshop and that has really paid off. This card features the This Christmas Specialty DSP #141628 in the Stampin Up annual catalog. The main focal panel is stamped using the tree from the Thoughtful Branches #144328 stamp set . The cardinals were also stamped using the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and cut out using the coordinating Beautiful Branches Thinlits#143538. For the sentiment banner , I used the Thoughtful Banners stamp set #141614 and punched it out using the coordinating Duet Banner Punch #141483. The sentinment is from the now retired Good Greetings stamp set. Before adding the banner, I added wisps of Cherry Cobbler and Emerald Envy Metallic Thread #142003.
