Yuletide Carol Paper Pack

Today I am making a card that uses a stamp set I have used over and over to make cards year round.  I find this particular stamp set very versatile, it is called Always Grateful.

I wanted something different from the traditional Christmas tree look for my card and I hope I achieved it with this choice.  Here is the finished card:


And here is the recipe I used to make it.  I did use one item on this card that was not a Close to my Heart product and that was the swiss dot embossing folder.  I really wanted the feel of snow falling and the CTMH Dot embossing folders dots were just too big for that affect.  I should also note that I stamped the center tree and then for the two trees to the sides I stamped off the cardstock onto scrap paper and then stamped onto the cardstock.  Again today I worked to use my background and texture (B&T) paper in the most efficent way possible.  All the products listed below can be purchased from my website (except the swiss dot embossing folder) at www.craftwithronnie.ctmh.com or by clicking on the shopping cart at the top of this blog.  Happy Crafting!!!
