You can tell how much I love Christmas...just ask my family LOL!  I am so busy during the holidays that there is no time for Christmas cards so I have to start now!!!

I designed the window card base in my Silhouette software and just adjusted it to make it work for my festive image.  I  had to make my own card base because this is a fairly large image. Worked perfectly! I used a die to cut the branches as well as the little bow.  (I had this bow left over from the card I made last week-love how that worked out). The sentiment I used was from a Lawn Fawn set-Home For The Holidays.

I used the following stamp:

Cling Bell
