First Christmas Card

Good Morning and Happy Saturday!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and Black Friday:)!  We had a great Thanksgiving, filled with fun, great food, family and lots of laughter.  Just a perfect day!  I don't do Black Friday shopping unless it's online but I'm sure lots of you out there got great deals!  So today I have a my first Christmas card of the season to share.  I admit though that I do not send all handmade cards, I do picture cards and guess what? - I already did them!!  Yay, first time I have ever done them in November...I used Snapfish this year cause they are having a 50% off sale on all their holiday cards and I like their designs a lot. 

Anyhow, for this simple and colorful card, I used Mint Motif's Beyond Borders to create the red and green chevron pattern on the white card base.  I then made a frame using a piece of red polka dotted paper from the Jillibean Soup Blossom Soup collection and Spellbinders circle and labels 1 dies.  In the middle I added my sentiment from Very Merry Sentiments and lots of glittery accents, this is Martha Stewart glitter and I just used a glue pen to add it to the card.  Remember the only place you can get Mint Motif stamps is at i {heart} papers!  And Kate has a great sale that is continuing through the weekend, she is offering 25% off  your order of $35 or more!  There is so much fun stuff in the store, especially in the paper section, I would buy it all if I could!!
Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a fabulous weekend and I'll be back next week, promise:)!
