A Very Merry Christmas Shabby Card for THE CUTTING CAFE

I had an urge the other day to make a special Christmas card for a friend's Mom who is struggling. I mean, we are all struggling in one way shape or form, but some of us have a heavier burden to bear. It's always nice to get a fun hand made card and hopefully even just for a few minutes it helps.

I pulled out a couple of fun things to play with while making this card. My first step was to cut out this really pretty stocking from THE CHRISTMAS SHAKER CARD SET from THE CUTTING CAFE. I didn't want to make a shaker though, because I wanted to use a new embossing folder that had roses. I inked up the embossed part and added a gold strip & flower ribbon to the top.

I added a really pretty Mom die cut from Amy Delightful along with a `present. I have fussy cut a bunch more from the printable, so I can't want to make another card!

Happy Wednesday!
