Warmest Wishes

Hey y'all! Shelly, here!
Hope all is well?!

Today, I'm sharing a fun and simple Christmas card with you!

So, for my card I dug out my very old 'crimper'!...I haven't used that thing in ages!! lol Not sure how it came to me to actually use it, but it did. And honestly, I think I'm gonna use it more! ;) Here's the funny part about it though, you'll notice only half of my kraft is crimped?!...Well, I supposedly wasn't pressing my handle down hard enough and I didn't realize it until I was half way done. (Always leave it to me to do something like that! lol) After, I thought about doing it again, but actually liked it only half way, so I left it alone. ;)

Once I did my crimping, I set my background aside (*note: I did my die cutting first before any crimping). Then I stamped on my tree, using the Mini Pines set, on white cardstock. Which I used two different green inks for. And after embossed my sentiment, which is from the Frosty stamp and die collection, using some gold embossing powder. To finish everything off, I added my layers together, a little twine, and one little star wood veneer. So what do you think?!!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
See y'all soon!
