Joyful jingle-y wishes

 Hello and happy Sunday, crafty friends!

Today I'm sharing the first Christmas card I've made so far in 2021,

and it's also of the ever popular slimline variety:

and the inside:

The red paper squares are cut 2" x 2" then corner rounded. I found a 

scalloped die set in my stash that had one just slightly larger for my matte.

Bonus! The bells are die cut using this really cool brushed silver paper, but

with my crack photography skillz it just comes out looking gray. LOL!

I was even able to incorporate some previously cut pine needles, so

yay me for using something in the UFO bin! (UnFinished Objects)

That's all for now. I hope that you have a relaxing

rest of your day. Thanks for visiting!
