Hark The Herald Angels Sing

Today I'm posting a Christmas Card!
I'm using the current Freshly Made Sketch #461 
And the colors from the current Paper Players challenge #516
Here is my card:

 Also submitting to NBUS #20  because I've used some brand new stuff.

Details - I'm using my new SU set, For Unto Us, new designer paper, SU Tis The Season & the Holly Die ( which I can't remember where I got it but I've never used it before.)
  Edited to add:  The die are from a set by Newton's Nook called, Pines and Holly Die Set.
Card Stock: Real Red, Shaded Spruce, Whisper White (SU) and a piece of Brushed Silver (retired SU) 

Other: Nestabilitie Circle Dies, Swiss Dot Embossing Folder, Sterling Silver Embossing Powder, Red Glitter (Art Institute) and Foam mounting tape.


  1. I love your take on the sketch, Ida, in beautiful Christmas red, white, and green! The "snow" e/f, silver embossing, plaid, and holly are such pretty and classic Christmas elements! Thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Keep well! Hugs, Darnell
