Warm Christmas Wishes Holiday Card

Looking for a quick but elegant holiday card? This warm Christmas wishes holiday card is the one to make.  Using the Encircled in Beauty die to cut a frame for the embossed sentiment turns a simple card into an elegant card.  Note the background designer series paper – it’s not from a holiday theme package but from the Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper pack. It provides the perfect background for the Cherry Cobbler die cut frame.  TIP: To ensure the sentiment stands out on the card, first stamp in desired ink color. Then, stamp over the image with Versamark and emboss with clear embossing powder. Using the Stamparatus ensures perfect stamping!
