James Bear Deck the Halls

Good Morning!  I've finished another "late" Christmas card today...I'm still making them for next Christmas!  This one is using the James Bear Deck the Halls stamp from Lili of the Valley, you can find them HERE.  The card shape is made using a large die from Go Kreate which you can find HERE.  I love their dies because they make die sets large enough for a nice 6x6 card, but you do need to have a Grand Calibur by Spellbinders to cut them out because the dies are to large for the Cuttlebug.

I am still using the Homemade Holidays 6x6 paper pack...I have enough paper left for one more card I think!!!  Amazingly I was able to make 5 different cards with this one 6x6 paper pack.  I LOVE these paper packs because they are already color coordinated for me and some, like this one, have little card tags included.  So much faster than trying to decide on my own papers one by one...

Here is my card for today...enjoy...
