Gingham Christmas

Hi!  I should be sick of making Christmas cards, but still I keep churning them out - even though I don't need any more this year!  

This card is for the Candy Cane theme at Curtain Call, as well as the challenge at Fusion (this time I'm using the inspiration pic).  I also used the sketch from Pals Paper Arts.



The gingham panel down the left hand side is a stenciled piece using the Gingham stencil from SSS and some white embossing paste I colored red.  The white panel has several die cut "merry" words layered onto it.  The banner is white embossed and has a little twine bow.  





And that's it!  Thanks for visiting.  I hope your Christmas preparations are winding down and you are getting the chance to relax.

So clever! I thought for sure that the gingham was patterned paper. And I do love those die cut sentiments in white!
