  1. Great card Chris, I am so inspired by your proactive Christmas card making!!
    Love this one, the holly / ivy and that embossing folder(??) I've never seen it!!

  2. Great card, Chris! I love the sequin berries on your mistletoe and I'm totallly inspired by how you decorate the inside of your cards to match, I'm trying to start doing the same! So glad you're playing along this week at Merry Monday!

  3. Great colours, perfect way to use the sketch... so pretty!

  4. Beautiful card, love how you did the layering, really pops! ~Diane

  5. What a great layout and I love the little sprigs of mistletoe on the panels with the one popped up front! Thanks, Chris, for sharing this with us at Merry Monday!

  6. Awesome card, great use of the sketch, I need to play along more with Christmas challenges

  7. Awesome card, Chris! Fabulous design and I love the mistletoe! Thanks for playing along with us this week over at Merry Mondays! :)

  8. What an awesome way to use this great sketch...lovely mistletoe image! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Merry Monday challenge this week!

  9. Such a sweet card! You did very well with such a wee mistletoe stamp and you did the inside as well! Very good. Hey, about those two challenge photos side by side... YOU ROCK! I thought it only worked if the planets were in proper alignment. I had no idea mere mortals could force it to happen!

    1. Apparently, the nine realms got knocked out of alignment, because before I pressed the publish button, all three were on the same line. Oh well, at least two were still on the same line. I'll still take that as a major victory! LOL!

  10. I've never managed to make the challenge pics line up properly, so WOOT! Colour me impressed! Love the mistletoe - and the perfect buttons (love that sketch too!)

  11. I love those Paper Smooches stamp - too cute! And your embossed background is perfect!!!! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Merry Monday.

    Deanne :)

  12. Fabulous card Chris, I love this layout. Thank you for playing along with us for Merry Monday.

  13. Wonderful card, its so great that the inside of the card got some mistletoe love too!

  14. You're so cute! That took me forever to figure out, too. I wish there was a way (is there?) to make those logos even smaller so we could show them three in a row without giving up so much blog real estate. I know I can change the margins, but that changes all the side bars, blah, blah.

    Your holly card (outside and in) is fantastic!! Love all the angles! Hugs, Darnell

  15. Gorgeous card! I like that you did the inside too...

  16. Adorable! Loving the mistletoe and that embossing plate is fabulous, too!
