Merry Moments... Lots of Joy

This is my first Holiday card of 2015!!  How exciting is that!!

We made this card earlier this week at the Christmas in August class.  Each of the ladies that came to class had so much fun putting their Christmas cards together - it's such a great time of year (no stress!) to start making your holiday cards!!

Watch for info on more Holiday classes to come in September!!

We start our card with a Cherry Cobbler card base, then added a layer of Very Vanilla card stock, followed by a layer of Mossy Meadow card stock embossed with the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder.

Elegant Dots Embossing Folder  138287  $7.50

We also added a strip of the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the card, just to give it that little flash of red on the card.  I absolutely love this Holiday Designer Series Paper - check out all of the designs below!
