Christmas Card ~ Wishing You... (post #1)

I made two more cards and two more note holders with one piece of 12 x 12 paper.
This time they are all Christmas themed.
For the first card I tore the design paper strip, inked the edges then backed it with a torn solid red strip. I cut out three of the little trees from the design paper backed them paper then adhered  them with foam tape.
I cut my scroll sentiment frame from some yellow design paper scraps then added the sentiment.
I cut a second scroll and put it behind the first one for a shadow effect.
I backed it with two colors of raffia.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Design paper strip from the K&Co. Susan Winget 12 x 12 pad.
*Sentiment frame is cut from the Scroll Die from Verve Stamps.
*Sentiment stamp unknown
*Raffia from my stash.
*CTMH stamp pad Ponderosa Pine.

May your day always be filled with love.
