Christmas - 12-11-17

When I bought this die I thought I had a great item for this year's Christmas cards, but I find it difficult to find a design that works well.  But I do keep trying!  It does not seem to show in the photo but there is shiny gold paper behind the star at the top of the stable.  I used a snow flake embossing folder, and the distressed stripes as well.  There is a bit of DP, some burlap looking ribbon, a glittery star, and an unnamed sentiment stamp.

Well I think you have used that die beautifully here. Your design is wonderful, and I love the embossed snowflake background. I know what you mean, I may love a die but can't seem to use it properly. Your card is fabulous!!! Thanks so much for playing along with us for the snowflake challenge this week over at The Mod Squad. We hope to see you there again soon!
