Merry Monday to You

Hard to believe Christmas is less than 4 months away!  Does that start your Monday off on a positive note or maybe a sour note?  LOL  I'm not anxious for Christmas to actually get here, but I do enjoy the months leading up to Christmas. 
This is one of several cards you'll be seeing where I used the new Holiday Frames embossing folder.  One thing I want to point out...the folder does have a specific direction it needs to go.  See the tree in the bottom center? 
Also, to get a nice bold tree, I stamped the star and tree trunk first (no ink on the tree).  Next, I stamped the tree using a Gumball Green stamp pad (since I don't do so well with markers on a bold image), cut it out and layered it with the star and trunk.  Next, I cut it out using aLabel Collection Framelit.
Here's everything I used:
Joyous Celebrations
Pennant Parade
Gumball Green Card Stock
     4-1/4x11 Card Base
     4x5-1/4 Embossed Layer (worked better than embossing the card front)
Very Vanilla Card Stock
     2x2-1/2 Main Image
     Scraps for Tree and Greeting    
Be of Good Cheer DSP
     2-1/2x3 Patterned Layer
Cherry Cobbler Marker
Early Espresso Marker
Gumball Green Stamp Pad
Cherry Cobbler Stamp Pad
Holiday Frame Embossing Folder
Labels Collection Framelits
Bitty Banners Framelits
Corner Punch
Stampin' Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by!
