Have A Holly Jolly Christmas

Happy December 1st....let the countdown begin!
Today is a new challenge theme at 
and the theme being 'Christmas Carols'.

Can you guess my
Yes, it is Holly Jolly Christmas...brings back good memories.

I went with a rather simple card and an easy mailer at that!

I used a snowfall embossing folder for the background (Sizzix)
and turned it on it's side to fit my
Once die cut. I colored in all the  various cuts with Copics.

I die cut a snowman using Yvonne Creations Snowman.
He too was colored in various places with Copics.

I added a sentiment from Kaisercraft Christmas Quotes,
stamped with SU Real Red ink and die cut
with one of the dies from the set

To finish I added a piece of red/white twine.

Make sure and pop on over to the Dies R Us challenge blog
and see all the pretty Christmas card song cards from the rest of the team,
they are gorgeous!

Coloring those cute little die cuts is genius. I keep thinking I need to try that. I love your design here with the embossed snow texture on the background, adds so much and really makes the rest of the elements pop. This card just makes me smile!!!

This is so cute. Love the musical staff with the cue birds, and the sentiment and snowman are perfect compliments.
