Jolly Holiday Christmas Card

It's September, so Christmas will be here faster than we expect.  If you plan to make a lot of Christmas cards, now is the time to start (I say that, but I'm sure I'll be scrambling in November and December to finish mine). 

This card uses the new Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper and one of my favorite dies - Top Note.  The Very Vanilla "mat" was created by cutting out a Top Note shape and then cutting it in half lengthwise.  Clip the inside corners and then just adhere the pieces slightly above and below the DSP.

Here's what I used:

Perfect Punches

Cherry Cobbler
    5-1/2x8-1/2 Card Base
    Scrap for Large and Small Scallop Circle Layers
Old Olive
    Scrap for Scallop Circle Layer
Very Vanilla
     4-1/4x5-1/2 for Top Note
     Scrap for Greeting
Jolly Holiday DSP
     2 Pieces 5-1/2x2-1/2 Top Note Layer

Old Olive Stamp Pad

2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch
1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch
1-3/8" Circle Punch
SU! Top Note Bigz Die
SU! Perfect Polk Dots Embossing Folder
Very Vanilla 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon
Paper Piercer & Mat Pack
